This painting was a result of studying several different paintings for inspiration. I'm still trying to keep a fairly loose style with my paintings, while concentrating on the overall picture.

This painting reminds me a lot of Lord of the Rings for some reason, though I adore the detail in it! It's so realistic too!
I wish I was there
I need that as a reminder. I tend to lock myself down in certain areas. In any case, I love your the feel for your paintings. To take in many different pieces and create your own is amazing
GREAT job on all the details, it looks beautiful!
My favorite part of this painting is the faithful dog, of course. I also love the muted haze in the background. Nicely done~
