I REALLY love how this image came out. I used warm shadows and cooler light to pull this off. It gives it a nice serene feeling to me. I used filtered light to illuminate the stream and to draw a viewer into the image. Let me know if you like
Probalby not really astonishing, but: I looooooove it Yeah, I definitely feel dragged into the wood - I even have the feeling, I need to cross the little water-arms in the front, and as if my feet are about to get wet then I would definitely chose the way on the right hand side in order so look at the landscape on the other side you should paint, what I am about to see there
I love the contrast between the dark areas and the patches of light, even though I personally usually stay away from really dark areas because I like sunny and happy better. But that's just because I don't like the dark. But the light also really gives your eyes something to focus on.
All of your drawings pull an emotion out of me whenever I see them :') This one made me feel like I was an adventurer on a quest and there could potentially be something hidden in those shadows ready to jump out and get me :> So I feel like I'm on my guard. But at the same time those pretty bright areas put me at ease and I just want to go flop down in a patch of sunlight and take a rest :>
