oh...you so rock! I'm so full of joy right now, thanks, Chad!
You know, it feels as though you've been painting with Verve for ever, haha. I'm thoroughly impressed by that and oddly proud!
I wrote a comment on your youtube clip, I'm sure you've found it already. But, yeah, brilliant choice of music. Reminds me of an arrangement in one of my songs, although mine is not as calm and relaxing...just reminded me (piano, muted trumpet...eh...that's about it, haha) "One of those trips"
When I drove up to Zagreb recently, it was a gorgeously complicated weather with loads of clouds and sun, wind and rains...everything, and I observed the landscape with Verve/painting in mind. It's such a difference when you look at the real thing with your own eyes, relax and imagine how to reproduce the look of bushes, trees, clouds, reduce them to strokes, observe the lighting, haze... as great as mimicking some concept design methods may be, they don't get you that connection and understanding of a certain "simplicity" of reality in some distance.
I'd love to go on some painting trips with ya', really. The landscape here in Croatia would drive you nuts, too, I'm sure!
...it's so beautiful!
Again, thank you so much, what a cool session!
