View Full Version : The Mountain and the pilgrim

Not managing to paint much nowadays but here's one I did recently for someone. It's been printed on canvas and framed but I haven't seen it hung yet.

It is for a friend's father, who is a very spiritual man. He has actually managed to go to Maan Sarovar at the foot of Mt.Kailash in the Himalayas. Mt. Kailash is supposed to be where Lord Shiva resides. When he told me the stories of his journey I decided to use that imagery for this painting.
It was printed at an actual size of 60" width.
When I get to see it I'll put up an image of the framed & hung print.
I hope you all like it.
P.S. I did have to refer to image of Mt.Kailash for the obvious reason that I've never been there :)
P.P.S. A lot of stroke detail is lost in size reduction so maybe I'll put the full version @ my deviantart acct.

The scene, the depth and the beautiful colours all combine to make this a wonderful work of art

Think what ArtRage would be like with a 64-bit multithread render engine. I love working large!

Thanks so much Oriane :)
hey Doc, i found a limitation of working large..unless you print it out the display never does justice to it :)
also most brushes have a hard time coping with larger sizes..
so till we get a 64 bit multi-thred AR...*sigh*
