Surreal Valley by Matchack Surreal Valley by Matchack
Here's a finished version of my previous painting. We see a hiker girl that wandered into what seems like a moving wal from a distancel, that when she approached turned out to be a river. W may just guess, what she thinks now - will she be pulled into water, when she touches it? Will it push her away?

It could be an illustration for a book or a cover for one. I think it's suitable for this contest.

Oh I like this version better! It has more strong feeling to it because of the darker and stronger saturation.
I love your works so much!!
Cheers~

Oh my gosh! I TOTALLY love this idea! At first I didnt recognize the river, just saw a kind of weird looking wall, then I read the description and knew better :D Great job in painting as well as on the creative side!

Extremely beautiful and ominous at the same time. What otherworldly phenomenon would cause such a thing is what came to mind.

Without the description, I didn't know that it was a river, and I still loved the picture and thought it was amazingly done.

WITH the description... wow, what an awesome Idea. I love it, it's amazing, beautiful, well executed... Magnificent.
