Wanderer by Rachopin77 Wanderer by Rachopin77
The figure is supposed to be sort of transparent, like a ghost. In life he was a simple man, and the forest was his favorite place to be. He longed to spend his days traveling for the sake of traveling, with no destination in mind, but life's stresses and obligations prevented him from being able to do so. Now, after death his spirit wanders like he always wanted.

This probably took me about 3.5 hours, and I used photoshop cs6 and a wacom tablet. It originally started out as a speed paint

I love how you play with the different shades of green to capture the light so perfectly. It looks so realistic. :D
Also, the inspiration behind this painting is very interesting!

I love your work. At the moment I am somewhere cold and dark and urban, but when I look at these paintings I can almost smell the sunlight on the leaves and the earth.

I love these little stories that go with your paintings! I especially love the luminous feel of the sunlight falling softly through the forest, and there is so much depth and dimension I feel as if I'm looking through a window or as if I'm standing there on the path! :)
