I love this!
I thought it was my imagination making me pranks about my homeland but I'm so happy to see this!

Yeah, the alpacas are a good part of my culture and somehow this reminds me of Machu Picchu. . . sometimes you can find an alpaca there.

Beautiful work!

Do you reference, when you draw landscapes? Colors or layout, anything. I LOVE the coloring, it's always so spot on <3

Thanks Missne85. It really depends on my mood. I do change it up and I suppose that keeps things fresh for me. Sometimes I reference, like this image was started as a study, but then a mistake happened so I went with it. Other times I'll start with photograph, and mix it up by cutting and pasting sections so I can't recognize it any more then start painting and work until I find something. When you start with a photo, the colors are already there so pulling out a new image is a little easier. Then sometimes I start with a black and white abstract and mix things up until I find something then apply color. Sometimes I'll use photo's to establish the perspective and color, sometimes I'll destroy the perspective and color. I have no recipe really.
