This is sheer genius! I'm glad I rediscovered this gem of an artpiece again, and taken a closer look.
The surreal landscape is gloriously multi-layered, yet each facet of its myriad details blends in seamlessly. The incredible details on the gnarled roots, shrubbery, foliage and flowers, are absolutely mind-blowing. The soft mists rolling silently across the towering mountains, as the mountain range itself fades away into ice-capped peaks in the far distance. The birds soaring over the swift winds, their cries echoing across the mountainscape. The big, dark clouds looming like an warning omen over this mysterious scene, even as happy clouds dance away in the distant horizon. The beautiful lady pausing before the natural stony bridge, mustering the courage and determination to cross across the threshold to the beckoning, mysterious cavern.
There must be a story behind this scene, and even if there weren't, the scene itself tells a marvelous story!
I would venture to say this is one of the best landscape paintings I've ever seen on the deviantArt... and I've seen (and fav'd) a lot!
This deserve a lot more accolades than it currently does, and I sincerely hope you keep wowing us with even more magnificent artworks. Kudos!
Holy, amazingly incredible! This Passage Landscape is stunning and The Character looks gorgeous! The plant life, cliff, birds, movement, mountains, waterfalls, terrain, sky, clouds, boulders, mist, atmosphere, style, colors, lighting, and other details are also spectacular! Awesomely epic work!
