The World Is Our _______ by limnides The World Is Our _______ by limnides
January 2010
14"x18" canvas board,
Rembrandt Series 1 oil paint.



Notes: This is influenced by a few things. Notably: Lethe, Hangatýr, Plain Fade, Jakob, and This Will Destroy You. and probably Turner, too. Hah.
It also feels like an unintentional remix of Vapour Trails.

I think I needed to add some colour back into my palette.

I can see Turner's influence, don't know the other reference you wrote.
It' a beautiful painting

I absolutely love the texture and shading that you've achieved here, and the colors aren't any less great! Also, awesome post-rock reference (although TWDY do more or less bore me with their other songs)

my favorite thing about this is that you got to this point while painting it, and had the courage to leave it alone.

well done.

I like this painting. And I choose to put "horrifying, relentless Frankenstein monster" in the blank.

It looks like an abstraction of classical aesthetics and tones to create something subtly contemporary, and feels like lost memory.
Reply
:iconlimnides:
limnides Featured By Owner Jan 17, 2010   Artist
Well, we both know my visual memory is shite. "Lost" is just a nice way of putting it.
I should add Turner to my list of influences. Hah.

He's always unintentional, but to deny the influence is just lying to myself. Ahaha.

Is it an accident or purely my imagination that the aura of gold is shaped like a heart? :blushes:

Love the prismatic palette, radiates all levels of emotion while remaining solemn and quietly passionate.
