Artwork Description

Short info to this concept painting:
The idea for this concept is not new, I've already tried to draw a sketch of this dramatic moment of the huge falling collumns many years ago. At that time I wanted to paint this picture on canvas in acrylic colours. My intention was to manifest a moment of supernatural (magic) elemental power, which both fell The Great Lights of the world - long before there was the sun and moon. Both lights were placed on columns which were placed confronted to both poles of the world. At this time the fictive world was a disc, so a representation of both columns would have been absolutely plausible in one single picture pane.
I experimented with the four-vanishing-point perspective which already M.C.Escher had used. Besides, zenith and nadir are incorporated in one single pane. Because the vanishing points admit no straight lines which run up to the vanishing points, I had to bend all grid lines - the calculations for it were incredibly costly. Then, after many years, I saw a thumbnail within Google, and the picture assumed a definite form again. I made the sketch in Corel Photopaint, and it was satisfacting for me, cause it was also a trainig for hue and value of colors and depth in painting landscapes.

Done in Corel Photopaint X3, with a set of 5 brushes. Time: approx. 2 hours
