Nice job, Armand. Love the mood/lighting on this one.

What a wonderful way of showing scale and grandeur, Armand! It's bee-yoo-tee-fool!

It's going to sound odd but what I love best is that patch of sunlight on the horizontal branch lying across the falls - and all the other little patches of sunlight that speckle the water and the branch the Masai is standing on. It is the absolute -perfect- heat shimmer-haze of botanicals and waterfalls seen through a humid, hot, hazy climate.

I'm at a loss. I find it funny when you say "A practice sketch". I wish I could pump 'em out like that!

Marcelo Vignali said...

I sit next to Armand at work, and I can vouch for him. When he says this is a practice piece, I'm telling you he can knock out one of these over lunch!

Beautiful Armand!

I think if you threw any warm or cold set of colors it would work out perfectly. Wonderful job.

Now to play 'catch up' and stare at your archive. ;)

Hey Armand,

I've been out of the loop for a while, so I have some catchin' up to do on the blogs. This piece is awesome!!!! Love the lighting and colors, not to mention the great haze mood you created. I can feel the humidity!

Hope all is well,
