Gouache on paper.
A3 format.
August 2009.

The real photo: [link]

It's a first landscape that i've ever drawn in my life. I always draw different still-lives, a little bit of portraits and just like an inspiration, i draw abstract drawings.
I hope, you'll like it. :sun:

Well, you are very talented. Thank you for making my world more beautiful by becoming a part of it.

Oh my God... You write such things that all my words erase from memory and i do not know what to answer.

Moreover, i started thinking what to do with the "time".. about that that all we do not have enough time to do things we really like. Even if these things maybe are the most important things we have to do in our lives. Of course, i think that "time" is just a word, that people thought out themselves just to make their life easier. Sometimes, i think that is true.. on the other hand, it is just our laziness..

Once, one artist(who works with tapestry) said me not to connect my life with that difficult life of artist or as You said "becoming a part of it".. unfortunately(or fortunately?), i can not keep myself and not connect my life with Art. I just do not know, if it is right or wrong..

So, it is Thank YOU for being in that wonderful and maybe even difficult world like Art!!

I am glad that we have met. You are not just a pretty artist, but you are fun to write to as well. It is pleasant to make new friends here.

Do what feels correct. Your heart and conscience will know.

Beautiful painting! I love the nice warm colors. The yellows and the browns make me almost feel the sunlight on my skin. It's quiet and peaceful. Great job!

This is actually very strange for me to look at, since the painting reminds me so much of an actual place I've been, namely the Parque natural del prat de Cabanes-Torreblanca in Spain. It's a place with marches and lots of wheat reaching almost till the see itself, and it's got a watch tower just like that. This could actually be almost a copy of a picture taken there, with a bit of an impressionist touch.

Aside from that (which is completely besides the point, I know, sorry) It's a very beautiful painting, I like the perspective, and the colours. The intensity of the light seems to represent the last rays of sun illuminating the beach, just before a thunderstorm is going to break loose and I've always liked such moments. Great job! :)

Oh.. You know, unfortunately, i have never been in Spain(i wish i could go there sometime). But i'm really glad, that my painting remind You something good from Your past. And, actually, this place where the picture was taken is in Estonia(in Parnu).. i don't know, have You ever been there, but it's really beautiful place. It's a beach. =)

Nikki, You are so kind person. Thank You very much for being. Unfortunately, English- is not my native language and i can't describe all the thoughts which are in my head... So, please don't judge my English strictly. =)
