Thread: Ice and Lava Landscape Challenge

  1. #1

    Ice and Lava Landscape Challenge

    The challenge is to paint a landscape of extremes, like glaciers and volcanos in the same scene. Or desert meets rainforest. Or city meets intense nature. Things like that! Take as much or as little time on the painting as you wish.

    Here are some photos to get you inspired.

    (I'll be posting my painting when it's done )

    perhaps

    you may also get inspired by phenomena that is called as "Desierto Florido", in Atacama desert, en Chile.

    you may search for photos, here are some: http://mantruc.com/fotos/

    y también pensé, que los cenotes puedan ser inspiración de estos contrastes, no? encontré este: http://www.laregion.com.mx/yucatan/e...enotes/cen.php

    There's a moon of Saturn called Enceladus that has a really strange phenomenon. It has ice volcanoes -- volcanoes that spew ice rather than fire.

    Your painting before the addition of the riverboat, it sorta reminded me of it.

    Have you been traveling again?

    maybe a coincidence, but i've immediately associated the picture with the tale: Saturn Rising, by A. Clarke.
