Cactus at Sunset

MattSeabrook 19 Nov 2023

Summer of 2022! and the first time I really wanted to create my own world! As you can see I took many liberties... It's all about that crazy sky! Once I got rolling with this, I felt like I was making a matte painting that would then be photographed and scanned into an early 90's computer to make a pixelated Menu Screen for an MS-DOS adventure game, or something like early Link/Zelda games vibe, instead of a Southwest vibe (I'm in Canada)


So beautiful! Love the colors.

You did the sky really well! Pretty colors.

This is a great composition Matt! Love your creativity! Your colors are awesome! Welcome on TIB!

Great sky!

Good job.

I really like the ochre in the foreground!

Thank you everyone!

You learn a lot from experimenting Matt, well done, cheers

Thank you DaveJ, I appreciate it!

Ive been eyeing this one. Great job!

Thank you so much @Cosmo-D !

I forgot to mention in the description this was Oil on Panel. 24x30, some salvaged cabinetry pressboard material that had a smooth veneer on top.
