Floodplain by kalambo Floodplain by kalambo
I try so hard to do moody dark paintings but i end up with pieces like this.

We've had lots and lots of rain here recently and it's a pretty flat area and all the fields have these lovely huge puddles on and coming back from school on the top of a double-decker bus gives you a great view of the pink reflections from the sunset sky in these puddles. So yeah, that was what i was trying to capture in this speedpaint.

Simple, but effective. Use of color is good, maybe push the specular effects on the water in different places to make the lighting more dynamic. Also on the trees. All in all good job! :) Fav'd.

I think its okay not to be able to draw moody things - i never can either and i blame myself too- but they usually end up better than my normal art c:

Anyway, lovely piece, I love the gorgeous colours here c:

I wish things worked like that XD. I'm pretty sure it qualifies as a desert here most of the year. We're having a wind storm right now which is pretty fun though! OwO
