Red and Snow - speed paint by JJcanvas Red and Snow - speed paint by JJcanvas
VIDEO PROCESS - [link]

A practice painting, took me about 2 hours. Is based on a reference photo. You can watch the video and see how I go about this process. Basically I start by painting with a reference at the side and then I take the image in my own direction!

Hope you like it!

After viewing a couple of your works, I've come to notice the pattern of the red-headed woman in a number of them. Being a big story buff, I can't help but wonder if she's a wandering soul who didn't cross over with the others. What brings her to a snow-capped volcano after her journey through forest and coast? 

Putting that aside, though, the snow seems to end too suddenly for how low it's come on the volcano, but otherwise I love it! :D

So, I've looked through many of your paintings and this particular woman pops up in many of them, anything particular about her?

It's like I can feel the cool, cold air, and feel the warmth of the flames in contrast. And this deep feeling of . . . profoundness - melancholy, or a sweet sadness (though not in any negative way) and with it a feeling of wonder and awe at the awesome, majestic sight before me. My soul, expanding, feeling it all at once - depthless eternity. Everything is, and I am. It's all like a dream, and yet so real, so vivid.

Just finished watching the video of this, and uh, I personally think it was better with the hooded-cape-guy, than this extremely unrealistic girl.

Good job anyways.

Love how her red hair stands out in the pic. Makes it look even more desolate/lonely/desperate. Maybe even hopeful. There could be so many stories behind this scene! The movement of the fire in the wind is lovely too! Your work is always so epic. Love it!

The bright white horizontal strokes on the tree-stumps/loose bits of rock kind of confuse the image a bit - at first glance these white horizontal lines appear to be snow, so they become representative of a very strong gust of wind. This gives a sense of fast left/right movement to the area surrounding the girl, which is a bit confusing.

I'd colour these white horizontal lines differently!


Otherwise the image is amazing =D
