October Light by Amotion October Light by Amotion
The light at this time of year and particularly late october is in my opinion at its most evocative, the long low angle and coolness makes even the most dull landscapes look that little more interesting. Couple that with a few a Nick Drake songs and you start wanting to paint stuff, or at least i do anyway :)

Havent done much digital in a long time so i thought id try my hand at it again, but tried to go about it in the same way as i do traditional, so i wanted to keep it loose and try and let the colour and texture do most of the work.

All of this may make you want to pain things but it makes me want to write about what you are painting. 
Beautiful picture! wonderful job!

Beautiful. It has a very haunting aura about it: an impenetrable wood to the west, a solitary farm in the distance with a haze above it that could signify something ominous, the bleak muddy ground with a wet puddle and an unknown wanderer whose shadow is very ambiguous. A very captivating painting!

gorgeous work =) I can see you've put a lot of time into this piece. I love the color choices. My only complaint is the mans head seems rather round... overall amazing work!

I must admit that from the thumb I did not think this was a digital painting, and then again your other works do look quite alike. Great work! I adore your use of colours as usual, and the composition is very good with the person palced in the golden cut, and that road going further and futher into the image. Just lovely!

thankyou very much, the colour as always was the key point for me :) Whats the golden cut? im not too up on the theory im afraid, but id love to know.

Yeah, you are gerat on colours. The golden thing I am talking about is the place on the format which is about one third to one fourth of the lenght or height. When a thing is placed in this position it makes it look natural and good ot look at, as well as makes us notice the figure better because of the natural wandering of the eye through an image. :)
