Blossom, Lincoln Renall (2D)

Title: Blossom
Name: Lincoln Renall
Country: New Zealand
Software: Photoshop

This is a personal painting. I wanted to try and capture a scene that had some kind of dappled light scenario.
So i tried to use some darker and cool foreground elements, and push the atmosphere a little adding some slightly warmer elements like the mid ground red scattering of flowers.
the key to this one was the composition for me, so attempted to use the bridge railing as a visual lead for the eye.
Hopefully its ambiguous in a subtle way, is she waiting for him or waiting in ambush. Added the sword behind her to suggest she is not all hugs and kisses.
Contemplated showing her hand reaching for the sword, but decided not to spoon feed the viewer.
hope you like.

Thumbs up

I really like the composition on this, very tranquil yet cinematic.
Excellent work!

Yeah, very atmospheric piece, I can almost feel the air. I like it!

Well done! I really like this. I like the use of the impressionistic style on the vegetation which, together with the excellent composition, puts the majority of the focus on your two characters. The eye is drawn immediately to them. Good job.

Thanks For The Nice Comments Everyone.
Probably The Only Part Im Not 100% Happy With Is The Leafy Shadow Area - At The Bottom Right, Could Use Some More Refinement, But I Decided Not To Get Too Carried Away With The Tiny Details, And Call It Finished
Cheers For The Kind Words.
