The Gathering

This is based on a thumbnail sketch I did almost 2 years ago. ( Again, you can make up any story you like as I believe that is what fantasy is all about. It could be a gathering of monks, a satanic ritual, a portal...whatever you like.
I hope you like it...and Merry Christmas and wishes of a Great 2011!

Crashing Waves

For this painting I used a similar technique as my previous one -Dry Winds- It's a great exercise trying to reach a pleasing balance between different textures, moods, values, etc. I also wanted to create some kind of "dialogue" between the wet, cold, hard foreground and the warm, soft background.
Let me know your thoughts and thanks for watching.

Dry Winds

A more conceptual approach to painting a fantasy landscape. I tried to achieve a balance between detailed and rough areas, where the brushstrokes are still visible.
Inspired by the amazing rocky formations found in Utah's National Parks. I've never been there but it must be something amazing to behold.
