View Full Version : Hidden Mask

this image was mostly done in 2009 and only now I decided to finish it.:o
So I thought the main Gallery might be the better place for it.;)
Used both AR 2.5 and AR3SP :)

This artful expression is as elusive and enticing as the evocative mask's
presence and those eyes that peer from behind the facade, could they
be familar? A dream that continues to surface? The lush surroundings
are exquisite, inviting the visitor to move foward then into and beyond
the mask to find what the heart may have been seaching for all along.
Intense, thought provoking, mysterious, magical and extremely well
painted! :)

Very unusually. It was pleasant to me. (Reflexion is similar to the alien? :-) )

Here Your gorgeous style is well recognizable, but it is far neater and enlightened than usual. I love this solar painting! Congratulations!

The eyes pull the viewer into the painting inviting one to explore the lush landscape. A very stirring painting SCP and so very well executed.:)

What a wild and imaginative piece. The reflections in the water and the eroded edges of the land near the water are superb. The eyes behind the mask are quite disturbing (in a fabulous SCP way of course). :):)

Quite unique and it can be interpreted as scary or pleasant, well what a normal person would say if there such person, eh?:D
