Sunset at Cherry Lake by scorpion016 Sunset at Cherry Lake by scorpion016
Join me in my new project, where I apply my earliest digital style -Five Foliages- to some of my favorite trees. (Also some inspiration from Leonid Afremov) 

This is my favorite tree to date. Out of all of them, it took the most time and work. Thankfully, I uploaded it to my stash early, because I lost all of my recent artwork when I sent my Surface for a repair (I didn't back up my "recent" folder, though I backed up the rest. Lesson learned, I guess!). Let me know your thoughts! 

Some Others:
Majestic Maple, Towering Pine, Oak in Fields of Lavender, Storm Clouds over Miami, The Lonely Willow

Prints now available!

Super fantastic...it's great to see creations like this...very soothing yet dramatic enough to motivate...yea Afremov inspired me as well...I just think that he should sign his name with a pallet knife as well.

Thanks! If I had to choose to be another artist, it would be a toss-up between him and Iris Scott!

From :iconprojectcomment:.

While I admire your amazing efforts to paint, this piece is very unique like a few previous paintings you made. As usual your coloring is, well, mesmerizing and it almost feels like looking into a dream where you can expect peace and tranquility. Trees near a lake with a sunset in the background are usually what makes up a rather peaceful setting, though you made it seem more than that. I think its nice that you have another artist/painter to draw inspiration from as every artist needs inspiration from someone or something in order to bring out their artistic ideas and combine it with their imagination and Leon Afremov is an amazing painter/artist.The reflection in the lake seems to almost match the image above and I must say that is impressive.

One thing I noticed, though I'm assuming it was intentional, is that you seem to have pixalated the painting in such a way that image appears slightly distorted. Once again bringing me back to the whole idea of the pic resembling a form of a dream world, but I suppose its just me who assumes this. Now that look closely, this seems to be a painted over photo because it just appears to have been a photo ingeniously altered into a painting which I find impressive, but I could be wrong. Overall, the painting is amazing as are the others before it. Good job.

I had a complete reply to this, and then it just got deleted when I accidentally left clicked on your name instead of right clicking...(facepalm)

I guess I will just say that I appreciate your feedback and your comment, as always.  The pixilation technique is a combination of color distortion and overall unity that comes from my first digital painting ever.  I am glad it produces the dreamy digital feeling I was going for!

You are right about painting a picture; I can see you have an experienced digital eye.  I combined a number of different stock images to create the scene I wanted, and then I painted over them.  After that I rearranged, recolored, repainted, and re-everythinged just to get it where it is.  I am surprised that after all of that you can still pick out its picture origin.

Thanks again for your feedback, MCN51FJ.  It's good to hear from you!

So, I guess I was right about the painting over photo idea. I didn't notice at first, but after observing the pic a little more, I came to that conclusion. Still an impressive piece. You're welcome.

This is so colorful and beautiful! I like how everything is a bit boxy and also makes it looks 3D
