nice.i love the atmosphere.

the only things are the arms and hands look a bit off, and also, the angle of his left wing.

I've been looking through your gallery, your angels are so real! This one evokes restrained emotion, a perfect calm before the storm!

(also great to see the male angels!)

Aw, man, Varian, this is impressive! the stormy sky, the Sun struggling through conveyed brilliantly by the lit up hill-side! you have such a glorious vision! lovely work!

varian's picture

Thank you, Sean! Like you, I try to "capture a moment", hopefully situations and feelings that are common to all, aside from any particular belief. Smile

varian's picture

Wow, very humbling comments, Bill. Thanks so much. Smile

This is great Varian - it has a real biblical feel to it like the old masters used to capture

Really nice job Varian. Great atmosphere you've created. I like the texture distinctions between sky, grass and character - keep up the good stuff! Smile

varian's picture

Thanks Holger! The grasses were fun with all their leaves and colors. I'm glad they're enjoyed. Smile

Very nice, excellent emotion in the sky...

I did want the storm in this one to be as much of a "character" as the angel, with a sort of companionship between the two. Your comment makes me feel it was successful. Thanks, Cliff. Smile

I wanted to congradulate you on your use of colors and placement. Most would make the angle the primary item in this type of painting. Dy placing him right center more focus is paid to the storm and therefore more of the feeling is conveyed. "Cliff Holt"

Much appreciated, Patrick! When I was very young, thunder and lightning scared me. So when a storm was approaching, my dad would take me outside with him, and we'd sit and watch the lightning and listen to the thunder and stayed out until the rain began falling. As he wasn't afraid, so I also came to enjoy watching the shifting clouds and changing light. Smile

Very pretty - I think the lighting looks just right for a dark day with a bit of sun peeking through onto the figure. Well done!

varian's picture

Coming from one who knows lighting and color as well as yourself, I really appreciate your comment. Thanks, Scott. Smile

Art at its best.
