Nursery II (Winter) by Tolkyes Nursery II (Winter) by Tolkyes
Oil on canvas. 22"x30".

A Christmas themed painting to a degree.
It's a 'sequel' to my first "Nursery" painting.

Woah.... I love how you blend space with earth (or whatever planet this is on....)

Thanks. I've noticed that nebulae are visually similar in structure to certain kinds of glowing fungus, deep sea creatures, trees covered in vines, unusual rock formations and icebergs. I thought it natural to morph them together at times.

Just stunning, I'm in love with your style! The ice structures merging with the nebulae is a stroke of genius. Raw imagination.

Thank you very much! I haven't received that many comments on this painting, especially compared to my first "Nursery" painting. It's much appreciated.

Thank you. Actually I find them relatively easy to do. I look at photos in books and on the internet and make black & white copies to go by.
I paint from light to dark. I try to match the colors with the actual nebulae but you don't have to be all that precise. The colors vary somewhat from photo to photo, anyway.
Be sure to paint with titanium white. It's very dense and opaque.
