Artwork Description

A painting from a book project that I'm currently working on. Nightmares have to originate from somewhere, right?

Ominous and alive... it lives up to its title!

Stella: Thanks for the comments. I really wanted the blue orb to be the focal point as if the origin of the nightmares. I have another image on the way that is a view from below the nightmare structure. Should be cool.

Kirsi: Thanks so much for the fine critique. I did try to keep the palette very controlled and subdued in order to punch out the blue light in the center.:)Thanks for noticing

A very frightful place, and that bit of blue is like a siren's call, beckoning in spite of the dangers.

Wow, that's a horrible place to be.. I love the colours & composition, and there's just the right amount of detail. Ditto to what's been said about the blue orb, it adds that extra thing to the image.

Scary and effective, I really like this. The blue light just calls for you.. I also like the colours you use, they are so light but still the feeling is heavy and looks like there is no air to breathe. Wonderful work!

Really nice concept philip!. im impressed with the organic shapes abound. Colourfully dark ambience which i find quite unique. I love the blue orb in the middle. Nice and cancerous! Laughing out loud.

Art at its best.
