[QS]: Cipanas

"Cipanas" ~ quick study. 7"x9" Acrylic.

For this piece, I wanted to mimic soft pastel with acrylic paint. I've come to admit it - I am an animation background painting impressionist; I love color.

Last month, I went to Indonesia. Under the grime of the city, there were still places where I was able to find solace. Wherever I looked, though the river was filled with mud now, there was still timelessness and beauty. Underneath the usual grey overcast sky, the sun shone. Perhaps these buildings were old barracks from the Dutch colonies, but the people made use of them now. If anything, this land and its people taught me, that the soul is unbreakable.
