Thats a really nice composition u got there. I agree with what people are saying that it's very dreamlike. The figure adds more to the composition than it might seem. Good stuff!

Thanks for saying so! I don't often dream things like this, either, to be honest...maybe things that feel like this? I love dreams, though.
I also really like your work! watching now :)

Wonderful work, I love that you keep the tones such soft pastel nuances while at the same time creating both depth to the scene and a surreal dreaminess. I hope you will continue with this little experiment in simplicity!

Onda bi ti se svidjela Belgija, Nizozemska, dio Njemačke i Austrije. Čitav dio povratka nazad prema Budimpešti vjerno su nas pratila polja tih vjetrenjača. Neke su bile stvarno ĐINOVSKE! :D Lajkam gdje ideš s ovim stilom.

Što Nicholas Kole zna hrvatski? :o Slažem se s komentarom, put prema Budimpešti ima carske primjerke vjetrenjača.

This is such a cool and whimsical piece! I love the use of the person for size comparison, the way the eye can't help but trail left to right to left then back again, and the time it takes to do so tells a story. It's such a fun piece, it IS like music! You say you wanted to make art like music, so if I may ask, is there something specifically that inspired this?
