I was browsing through some of my inspiration images and when I had been looking at some Roger Dean stuff I felt like painting this.

Really good, great atmosphere and love the way you gave the rocks such substance to them.

Thanks for looking in and commenting limey-g. This was fun to paint. I had a notion to populate the image with more signs of human habitation but time didn't permit. In my imagination though I kept smelling that salty wind from the sea and thinking of a fishing and trading culture making use of the area. I might develop that idea at some point.

You really grabbed Roger Dean's essence here. Bravo! A very good illustrator indeed, although generally a little too "artificial" for my taste.

Love the beautiful colors in this, and the softness, well done

Love the colors and the surrealism.

Top notch painting that would look cool on an "Yes" LP record cover...;););)

Brilliant. Roger Dean was a huge influence at our school in art classes too. :D
