Spellbinding scene! Very peaceful and dramatic. There's a tale waiting to be told her of this unknown ranger/warrior at this ancient crossroads riding through the dense forest.
Especially love the depths you've created in the scene, using alternating bright-light and shadows. Love those ancient obelisk (waypoint markers), the waterfall, the colors (perfect!), the horse & rider, and the diffused waterfall/rivulet, and certainly the most detailed & layered trees, grasses and shrubbery.
That is brilliant, only 4 hours and a bit! All your art are just so realistic and amazing, you have an amazing ability I really like how some of your works have things in the background blurred out, it gives great depth to your paintings, keep it up
I want to trod that road! This painting has a rare mystique about it, to me, that makes it seem specially lovely, inviting, and almost familiar. But I also manipulate the surroundings with my perspective I suppose, ah well.
