Luftschloss by drachenmagier Luftschloss by drachenmagier
Initially I wanted to try my hand on somewhat realistic clouds with acrylics. That took about 7 minutes till I was bored with realism. :'D
This is the result.
It was still good acrylics practice though, so, that's ok.
And it was a lot of fun to just barf color onto the canvas. : D

A Luftschloss (directly translated from German to English) is a plan, idea or dream, which is impossible to realize. A pipe dream or phantasm.

Beautiful! I loved that I couldn't tell what kind of paint you used until I read the description- even more impressed when I found out it was acrylics!

Thank you! :D
I'm still a beginner with those materials though. ^^ Still working on getting a hang of more realistic effects. ^^

Reminds me of van Gogh's Starry Night.

Not a bad association for sure~. ^^ Thank you!
Though I'd love to get such an effect right. He might not have been liked for his style during his lifetime, but some of the effects are just breathtaking. ^^
