Final Coloring: Journey's end



All done. I'll return when I have a little more time to explain what I've been up to in these final few steps.

Final Image: The Old Man of the Woods



Here's the finished painting. I know this 'final image' milestone should be accompanied by an explanation of the story behind the picture but I think artwork is much more entertaining when people draw their own conclusions about the background to a piece or, better yet, made up a story of their own that fits the image.

I suppose an explanation of why I chose this picture for the 'spectacular' theme is in order. When I started sketching out ideas for the challenge, I was exploring images that were spectacular in scale and presence, but the results weren't satisfying. I came to realise that what I'd drawn wasn't spectacular at all, just big. To me, it's the quiet little spectacles which surround us every day, fleeting moments of wonder and excitement that we so often take for granted, that are truly spectacular. I've tried to capture something of that sensation in my entry.

"Shh..!"

Absolutely stunning piece, Matt! The colors and the way you frame your scene is extremely well done. I also like your choice of theme very well, it stands out in a big way in this challenge and I hope the judges think so, too.

You're really good at capturing interesting moments and and scenes in all your work. It's a joy to behold! Best of luck to you!

Very giddy moment you got here. "shh.." is such a simple expression, yet you found the spectacular aspect of it thru a child's eyes. As always, awesome work man!
