This painting was inspired by the Ellora Caves in India.What took me was how they would carve entire structures from the mountainside itself, so I tried to portray that in this painting. More work to come. Comments & criticisms welcome!
I love the mood this has. It's dripping with mood. Oozing with mood. I love the color scheme and the overall sense of atmosphere. I can't think of anything I'd change, downplay, or enhance, and I suspect that's a good thing. I have a big mouth and have been accused of feeling that everyone is entitled to my opinion, but the truth is, if a piece of work makes me sit quietly, then it's done a fantastic job of being itself. This is wonderful. I'd love to explore this world.
I would really love to be here! I can definitely see the mountain-carved architectural elements of India in this, but you took it above and beyond. This verdant paradise made me imagine so much, thank you
