This is an exquisite work. 

I have been a professional (traditional media) artist for more than ten years, and had a great deal of success after working very, very hard for year upon poverty-stricken year. 

Every now and then I wander the web and see what's what... I've been doing that for twenty years and in many ways it is a means of assuring myself that I work HARD, that my work is simply... GOOD... that it moves people.

I've had ten solo shows (I live in perth Western Australia) and won more than 18 awards, some international... 

I'm telling you this stuff so that you will listen to me.


Because you need to.


When I wander the web, I find talented folks, it's true. But it is rare that work will blow me away.

Very, very few times have I been moved to enjoy an entire portfolio from one artist.

I mean... I KNOW it is just fkin HARD to keep up that kind of quality day after day and work after work.



I have always been able to keep secure enough, in my own work, when I have placed it against the beauty and power of other artist folks. 


I am a strong person. I have earned my scars and my glory.



I am wise. I believe that I see the savage miracle of the world... but more than that I want you to believe that I KNOW the bloody strings that run beneath every one of us and I look as hard as I can look and i listen as hard as I can listen and I feel so HARD so very much.



And I tell you this, Don Malo of the UK.


YOU ARE THE CLEAREST, MOST PURE EXAMPLE OF WHAT EVERYTHING ABOUT GENIUS MEANS THAT I HAVE EVER EVEN IMAGINED COMING ACROSS.




Know this.


Try and force it into the straining shutters of your heart.



I ask you to ask yourself to believe it because 


I SWEAR TO YOU IT IS SO.


It has been a humbling privilege to see the supremely beautiful, subtle, powerful and affecting wonders that are your works.






Thank you for that.





I feel really very insecure now.





Oh you can see my work here if you want.

I want you to look, yes.

AH well.

Nice to meet you dude.




Luck.

And don't ever fucking stop.

oh btw, would love to watch you paint. do you have any stream or any uploaded videos? I would like to know how you get the perspectives like you do, i feel my paintings often feel... flat, perspectivally.

Well - I do have some tutorials (vids and step-by-steps) on my Blog. I signed in to live-stream quiet a while ago, but never used it.

Maybe I'll find the time to do one - especially for those topic. But it will take a bit of time.

Thanks and cheers

Even love the quick ones. Everything looks perfectly in place.

I have a question: do you come up with these landscapes or do you use references? If you don't, then have you used them in the past so well that you now know how to do it without?

Thanks for sharing your amazing artwork again :D

Thanks a lot!!!

thats totally different and it depends on how much time I have.
Most stuff are made from scratch and some are based on image I have seen, etc.
I use some refs for texturing.
But again - it really depends on what the image should be and how much detail it should contain.
Studying landscape images is also a good approach.
Cheers

Thank you!!!

For this image I used three of my main brushes (mostly structured ones) and a couple of customized brushes for the leaves and branches
