And here's the final piece, Green Skies. I think it's funny that this still looks a bit like a kid's book. I don't think I'll ever reach further than YA in my paintings, which is fine with me of course. Note that the birds are a last minute addition and are pretty conventional in their other- worldliness I think, I mean that in a good way. I was thinking of some pretty standard SF illustrators while doing this piece. Virgil Finlay, Hannes Bok. Finlay in particular.
But I was also thinking of more contemporary work like Jon Foster and Rick Berry.
and I really wanted the black water to be creepy. have you ever looked into the water whaiole sailing at night? Creepy... I'm going to leave this up until the weekend.
