Lost Sea by luana Lost Sea by luana

I can't say I like it .. maybe in some details it is good, but in general I don't think so ..

I seem to lose inspiration last days .. and I have not very good mood .. When I started this piece it was much better, I even thought I'd like the result, but when I continued work on it I did something really terrible .. I would probably have thrown it away, but today I decided to delete all the layers I didn't like and paint something new and different .. but I don't like it anyway ..

Finally I flipped it horizontally just to look what I'd get .. think this way it looks better .. or maybe I was just bored of it and after changing direction of look it doesn't seem that bad to me .. I also had to cut and flip the Moon, so now it is looking in the direction of the tree .. maybe that's why it seems to me better this way too ..

Anyway hope you'll find something to like in it ..
and maybe then I will like it too ..

A few years ago, I spotted this on dA and applied it to my desktop. Now, I still recalled it as one of the most atmospheric wallpapers I've ever had, even though I hadn't seen it for such a long time. Seriously. I love the illumination and the soft colours, there's not too much hassle going on there and at the same time it's not too plain, bright or dark, which is rare. :)

I wonder whose lanterns those were? I love your work all of your work, but I really love this. It calls to me and reminds me of my favorite song by Stevie Nicks called "Crystal". You'll have to listen to it now what I mean.

And by the way I know what it means to have your creative well go dry. I only wish I could create like you do however.

This is beautiful, I love the detail of the grass. Very soft and thoughtful.

I can't understand why you didn't like it!! It's very well done.

Заценил на ВП, но комент раз уж тут оставлю таким образом.. ;) (Wink) Работа на самом деле понравилась, хотя думал что опять деревья небо и вода, уж извени но наскучили, поэтому долго не качал... :) (Smile) Но руки дошли и вот что думаю: КЛАСС! Фонарики в траве и свет от них просто замечательные, как ты так сделала?? Линейный колор додж? Неужчто руками прорисовывала?? УВАЖАЮ! OMG Все остальное цвет и текстуры тоже понравились - как обычно чувственно и приятно..

все... респект тебе! :) (Smile)

Ahhhhhhhhhhhh. This is Luana becoming Luana! Impressionistic with a new edge and palette. This is wonderfully fantastic!
atila Featured By Owner Jun 14, 2003
The way you work with lights is just perfect, i think that this is a beautiful work, the meaning of those two lights on the grass makes me think that they have fall from their place, they are "out of place", but still they have their ownl light, they shine, even when they have fall the are still alive... shining

This is very very very very beautiful,
the patches of light are really wonderful,
a soft breeze seems to stroke the grass,
the lost sea is simmering,
did you ever read "l'herbe rouge" from Boris Vian
you're so closed of the vision I've got of the atmosphere of this book...
A great piece of work Worship

Purple haze

Purple haze all in my brain
Lately things just don't seem the same
Actin' funny, but I don't know why
'Scuse me while I kiss the sky
Purple Haze all around
Don't know if I'm comin' up or down
Am I happy or in misery?
What ever it is, that girl put a spell on me
Help me
Help me
Oh, no, no
[faint, spoken lyrics...all questionable]
Talkin' 'bout heart 'n'...s-soul
I'm talkin' about hard stuff
If everbodys still around, fluff and ease, if
So far out my mind
Somethings happening, somethings happening
Ooo, ahhh
Ooo, {click} ahhh,
Ooo, ahhh
Ooo, ahhh, YEAH!
Purple haze all in my eyes, uhh
Don't know if its day or night
You got me blowin', blowin' my mind
Is it tomorrow, or just the end of time?
Help me
Ahh, yea-yeah, purple haze, yeah
Oh, no, oh
Oh, help me
Purple haze, Tell me, baby, tell me
I can't go on like this
Purple haze
You're makin' me blow my mind...mama
Purple haze, n-no, nooo
Purple haze, no, its painful, baby

This is so right! :) (Smile) Man i thank u! I've always wanted to see something like your pic that describs this song! :) (Smile)

Beautiful! I just love the glow of the lights on the ground and everything. It's just pulls you right into the picture. Great Job! Floating

I love this piece beyond words. Its incredible. Such a broad mix of sadness and softness. The colors are so attractive and the little tiny lanters are the perfect touch. My husband left for a few days today, This will be only the third time in19 years we've spend a weekend away from each other. He'll be home Sunday, our 12 wedding anniversary. I feel lost without him. This piece just grabs my emotions tight today. Brought a tear to my eye. THank you so much for creating this! Hug

You have to look at it FULL VIEW. In thumbnail view the suddenness of the horizon looks a bit sharp. But in full view... you see the magic of Luana. And it's another wonderful creation indeed.
