Artwork Description

What to do when you are flying across the Atlantic, 30000 feet above the sea, with everyone sleeping in the seats around you, all lights turned down ? Grab a ball-pen, and dream of enchanted woods in a far away land, where little fairies come to play in the sun. --- Ball pen on paper, colored digitally --- SMALL piece, hence the small picture size. --- More art from Pierre Carles at www.pierrecarles.com.

Thank you Eva. I guessed you would like dreamy forest settings, given your first entry in Epilogue. Wink

Thanks Andrei. It is a very "discreet" piece, sort of, it does not attract much attention. But I like it, and I appreciate your liking it too. Smile

Great work. Respect Bro!

Thank you Michal. This one almost did not make it into Epilogue, which I can understand given its simplicity (or crudeness, depending on how you view it). But I am happy it made it in finally, because sometimes I love simple and naive things too. As for the doodling with ballpoint pen ... you are right on spot: that is my favorite activity when trapped in a boring meeting or in public transportation ! Smile

This is a beautiful picture. I love how you have captured the streaming light from above. I guess all the doodling with ballpoint pen paid off Smile

Many thanks Elena. Sorry it took me a while to answer your comment, I was away for some time.

I remember seeing this one on the forums. I'm glad it was accepted. I really like the feeling of weightlessness and lightness that is conveyed. Really nice Smile

Many thanks Renata. It is a small and very basic piece, but somehow, I love it.

Many thanks James. Not many people actually like this one, but I have a soft spot for its simplicity. Smile

Many thanks Simon. I feel really honored that you like it. Many thanks too for your general advice in the WIP, they made me think and get some perspective on Epilogue, which I really needed.

Well done on this, it turned out to be an excellent little piece. Even at this small size it has real atmosphere and a great feeling of open space. Good job!

A million thanks, Kay. You help me in my artwork beyond what you can imagine. So it makes me very proud that you wrote a comment here. See you soon on the forum. Smile

This looks really good at this size. I am so glad it is finally up, Pierre.
You know the black background of this page also pops this work. Nice a clean and I just love it. Always did...but this sure is a good presentation of it here.

Thanks a lot Marley. Very nice of yours to drop by and leave this kind message. Indeed, I tried my best to soften the edges after getting feedback in the WIP. Not too easy to do with ballpen, so I am happy if you find it an improvement.

Thank you very much Kay. Your support and positive feedback along this lengthy process was much appreciated.

Very beautiful work, Pierre. Congratz on another piece for your gallery. Those trees are truly tender work. It has improved alot since i first saw it, it wasn't so soft around the edges. Great piece and congratulations, Pierre.

Art at its best.
