I got inspired lately to create an environment piece, after going up Coniston in the lake district. The countryside around there really is beautiful and I wanted to try and capture that magical forest feeling within a painting. Obviously I couldn't just paint a plain forest, I still had to sneak a little bit of fantasy in there, thus the giant stone hand!
It got suggested to me that the piece is lacking some life to it, especially the water, which I can't help but agree with. So I am going to adjust that and possibly add some wildlife to the piece. I'm thinking maybe a few birds flying around or perched on the hand, as that is the focal point of the painting. So you may see this piece again. Till next time!
