I don’t know, but whenever I see this photograph ( from Pinterest), I hear an inner voice chanting ‘The Realization’.
I woke up this evening after quite a ‘dream’ – a lucid one. The vividness of it baffles me, but a immense break from this Reality is was – like a free ground to experiment with Art and Emotion. A training ground a lucid dream is to me.
I place the background, the foreground – balance the abstract qualities in it as I please.
And then – commit it to memory and hope to show it to others with my trusty paints and the canvas. Just eager to bridge the gap – the gap between reality and my mind.
These artworks by emperpep ( http://emperpep.deviantart.com/ ), an anime/manga artist on dA are certainly more than worth a look. The artist’s art seemed to me like digital art, as it was too detailed and vibrant. Oil paints are often soft and yellowish, and with water-paints, I have little experience. So, now i see that water-paints can be used to create paintings that preserve the vibrancy and don’t get all dull as oil paintings ( though oil paintings have their advantages too). I can only wonder that how much time it would have taken to create a single piece…. One also, notices that although most of the paintings here display moon-light scenes, they still are clear as day, and not dark; the details are same as one would do in a daylight scene….
So hello again guys and girls! I had previously planned to do just 2 blog posts today, but then while browsing Shadowness (an awesome awesome art community), I stumbled upon these. And then– well, then my eyes blew open and they aren’t closing any time soon…. I found paintings that one dreams about, the surreal-ness and ‘dreaminess’ of the paintings is- just incredible. The bright (and complementary) colors used contribute to it’s surrealty (if thats not a word, then ‘surreal nature’) make it look absolutely pleasing to the eyes.
