Dawn in the meadows by Nightpark Dawn in the meadows by Nightpark
Based on a dream it took me nearly three months to finish this work. I was 16 back then and painting this image almost killed me :XD:

This is very good, but I personally think that there are too many things stuffed in the picture. Don't get me wrong, it's still very good, but a bit too loaded with stuff :D

Well, this is the result of my detail-bigotry. Back then I had the problem that I always used small brushes most of the time while painting on canvas this large (it's almost 1 meter height). XD I totally agree with you, it IS stuffed. ;)

I must know what medium you use...I just love the texture of your paintings...I could blab on about how cool this one is too...but I am sure you will get tired of me soon :)

:D I'm pretty patient, so don't worry! ;)
Well, this painting was made with... how should I say... water colour in tubes (:XD:) and partly acrylics. Some years ago this was my main medium, but today I either use oil colours (If you get the hang on it once you will never want to paint with anything other again! :giggle:) or the computer, where I use painter and photoshop in combination. I just love "tradigital". ^^

Thanks for your nice comment! ;)

I use oil paints, it is my pref. Acrylics dry out to fast...I use PS7 for my digital portraits and some of my old horses, but now I am starting to draw in pencil again. it is easier for me to control a pencil than to draw digital with a laptop touchpad :D

Ouch, you use the touchpad!? O____O Well, I'm using my mouse, but I'm pretty sure a graphic tablet would feel like heaven. ^^ Too bad they are so expensive. :XD:
Pencils (and to me watercolours, too) are a nice alternation from everything else. ;)

I had a tablet at one time and I didn't like it. I ended up giving it to a friend for her bday. I like my touchpad but I have to blow things up really big to get details.

As long as it works it's ok, I think. In the beginning I got cramps using my mouse while painting details or using the lasso tool. >_< But I have also improved my fine motor skills since then... =P
