today's landscape painting ..

I feel like I need to practice more on waterfalls and I always wanted to draw a scene with colossal trees... SO I COMBINED THEM TODAY. :noes:

enjoy~

thanks! : D 
I paint in Photoshop for all of my paintings. I use a really old version at home, so it's a little crappy LOL. I recommend the newer CS versions :P

The deep forest, tall trees, and waterfall look so peaceful. If I were there, I'd actually imagine it to be very quiet, even with all that falling water. A lot of sound can get lost in a place like this :O This piece captured my mind for a very long time, thank you (:

Oh, the atmosphere is so quiet - except the ship which is going to sail down the waterfall xD

what a nice place to be.
at first it reminded me of Princess Mononoke with the trees and the water but now.. it's definitely different.
the mini-boat is cute :)

It kinda looks like an "edge of the world" kinda thing! I like it! And I love the little boat hanging out there, as though it were about to explore the Land of the Colossal Trees.

i should add a point of critique: it seems you've downscaled the boat as opposed to up-scaling the trees, you also downscaled the birds -- this has the effect of making a scene where we've got a toy sailboat cruising along in some marshy area as opposed to a gargantuan set of redwoods. this could work in a Gulliver's travels sense where it's simply an upscaled version of our world, but otherwise if the trees are huge we'd be seeing different sorts of terrain -- those look like human scale rocks and grass where they might instead be mountains and low-lying forests, for example and etc.

just thought you ought to have my two cents.
