Hope by nighty Hope by nighty
This one started out very dark, but then it turned out to be more of a positive piece.

Tried some new techniques with this, more layering, different papers, washing away of acrylic paint and adding
of wax as a finish. You should give this one a full view to see all the different textures.

Hope you enjoy :heart:

I think of David Lynch's modern art for many reasons when I see your creation (the choice of the colors, this lonely man, this sun and little words in the air..)
I really like your work!! :)

Love the style of this. Great work.

I will note that in the thumbnail image the sun really looks like a fried egg. Which isn't a bad concept for a piece of art either :)

Wow! Words could never describe such a beautiful piece of art work. A man looking at the sunset thinking of the kindness and the beauty of the world as it slowly comes down. His thoughts go into a deep despair, darkness, night. But the hope of tomorrow bring joy inside, as only a few hours till the sun rises again.

I agree with GrimAngel, this piece is very like Van Gough's starry night. but in contrast it is also very much your own. Bravo on a beautiful piece

yeah - really reminds of Magritte's works - he used to put words on his paintings like that and a silhouette of a man in a bowler... anyway, a wonderful work.)
