Tree of Wanderlust by DanilLovesFood Tree of Wanderlust by DanilLovesFood
{Commission}

Listened to these when I was working on it today!

I tried to give it that feel of comfort, exploration, warmth and ambiance.
Hopefully that feeling went into the painting.

Thanks for stopping by! C:

Hello! I know how difficult it can be to get critiques, but I hope I'm not being too picky on such a *gorgeous* image! There are only a few things I noticed:

-The bright, shiny area behind the tree that starts on the right-hand side distracts me a bit because it stops so abruptly right at the edge of the tree. (Maybe it's your intention?) :) Maybe it could fade off at least a little bit like it does in other parts of that white area?

-I'm having a difficult time telling where the light source is in the image. Is there a sun or moon? Or do the glowing white areas cast light on the scene?

-In the background brown areas on the left side of the image, it almost seems like that area has too much detail; it doesn't feel as far "back" in the 3-dimensional plane as it probably is supposed to be? (Maybe just needs a tiny bit of blurring or wash?)

-I kind of feel like there's too much space on the left side of the image in general. (Crop slightly?) My eye keeps wanting the two people to be more on the left side of the image, but that could just be me. :)

Again, it's a WONDERFUL image, but I know a lot of artists want people to be really picky so the image can be the best it can be! I hope I've helped. :) Thanks for sharing this beauty!

This is a beautiful piece. The tree becomes an evocative figure-- the way that it is twisted, bent over, and reaching outward into the expanse behind it, gives the tree personality. I feel that it has it's own story to tell.

Your colors are surreal and dream like, hinting at things in motion besides what is rendered. The pale, misty background is the most powerful part of your piece, I think, because it definitely reads as empty space (which the two figures must be wandering through) and the negative space around the tree is also very interesting. I think the one thing working against you with the white fog is the way that it gives a "halo" around the tree, making it appear flat in those areas. I think if you remove a bit of the halo, it will help the piece.

Overall this piece does evoke a sense of wanderlust for me. I feel the figures' anticipation and awe as they are about to follow the tree's guidance and step out into the void.

Dani, your work is just brilliant. I love the soft, painterly feel it has. The flowing color gives a fantastical sense and a nice realism to it as well. Please keep creating!
