Winter Lament by Tolkyes Winter Lament by Tolkyes
Oil on canvas. 24"x30".

This painting simply combines two of my favorite things to look at: icebergs and the landscape that is characteristic of the British Isles.

Thanks! It was supposed to be a subtle grimacing face but not a shark. Oh, well.
 If you look closely at another area it kind of looks like an ape face, too. Again, not my intention (not consciously anyway). Maybe my subconscious has a goofy sense of humor. Judging by some of the dreams I've had over the years, that's entirely possible.

Fantastic job on the colours, I just love the sky. The trees and iceberg look look superb too.

Thank you. I like English scenery and the surreal shapes that icebergs make so I simply combined the two.
I'm glad you like the sky. I think it's one of my better ones, especially as it diffuses the hills in the background with its light and color. I need to do more backgrounds like that.

This is so beautiful. The details on the landscape are amazing. Also the ice burgh looks like a great white shark. :)

Thank you. It wasn't meant to look like a shark. It was supposed to resemble a grimace or frowning face, though. It's based on a photo.
