Victorian Crumble

I wanted to make something which was nostalgic and decided that the theme of the breakup of the British emipire would have lots of imagery that I could play with. Hopefully I have come up with something surreal but also memorable. I especially enjoyed working with the muted palette as I realise now that I tend to use tones that are very saturated - its surprising how much colour variety one can achieve with variations of grey!

That's cool. Believe it or not I once had a dream almost identical to this, where I was looking out of a window onto some floating islands and one of them had a huge elephant on it. No kidding Very whimsical image and although I don't think the style is particularly JY it's still a great piece in its own right.

Thanks for the feedback it really is appreciated! lynch/Irawan - you know the green had been whispering to me but I wouldnt listen and now its too late Every fault acknowledged is one step closer to perfection. PELENG/BaronImpossible (glad to make your acquaintance Mr. Munchausen your exploits are legend) - I realisied about half way through that this painting was never going to be very much like Yerka's but ploughed on anyway and I am pleased that it is the cause for such phrases as 'i had a dream...' and 'it reminds me of...'. Thanks
