Cataclysm in Azeroth. Acrylic and ink on canvas. 36" x 36". 1.5" deep.

Those of you who know me will appreciate the massive geek factor: I am a bit of a gamer......that said, its only in the last few weeks that I have really gotten into World of Warcraft!

The RGB palettes of Blizzard's wonderful virtual world contain colours that really do glow!
The latest expansion and update centres around the cataclysm as Azeroth's landscape is ravaged somewhat by a large and nasty dragon.

Here is my response! I have not worked to such a literal theme for a while, but was itching to pay "tribute" to the beautiful visuals on show in the game. The colours and lighting really add amazing atmosphere to adventuring here.

  1. Totally get it as you painted it, now that you pointed out the less subtle subtleties!

    Amazed how much my thoughts about my poem influenced what I saw in this. I went for the stark and obvious, because it was on my mind at the time!

    Still loving it.
