Island



Illustration Friday's topic this week is 'Island'
This is an old acrylic on board that I revamped in photoshop.
Below is an edgier version.
I think the top one has a sort of dreamy oasis feeling whereas the second one is like the aftermath of over population and pollution!

The revamped version has a special presence! Slightly ominous! Nice paintings Janie!

It feels like the last bit of humanity, floating on the omnipresent body of water. Interesting pieces!

Wonderful pieces Janie!

It's very cool, both pieces. The top one does have a dreamy, soft quality to it, but I like the bottom one too. I really like the colors and texture, very vivid and raw.

i like the second one better too, to me the contrast and color are interesting.

How fun to revamp a piece! The original is lovely. It reminds me of the island my husband and I honeymooned in. But I also like the second version, too. The contrast and textures are great!
