About this image

I was thinking about the idea to paint a romantic sunset landscape. Every day Sun goes down and space and stars appears with Night, What about to have both things at the same time? Gimp makes that possible. i hope you like it.

I agree with the terms and of course this image is creative commons as said on the terms on competition. good luck all of you!

@sofia732011 Hi again, nice to hear you are testing digital art, enjoy it. if you need help for something ...
Old way of painting is good too, the better is to be able to combine both worlds.
see you

Ramon, I admire you, no doubt. I know a lot of your paintings from the internet and and you gave me the "kick" some months ago to try painting digitally. But I am coming from the "old" way of painting on canvas traditionally, and up to now I wasn't aware that I may paint on layers.

Thanks for the comments, very appreciated . I want to say that everything is painted by scratch, not composed or using photos. All came from my mind and is not photorealistic but emotive style IMO.
@sofia742011. This is digital painting, but the process is basically the same as I smudge the color too on digital canvas. I also paint traditionally, I invite you to check my web gallery, :)

I agree with you sofia, however in the digital world the actual work of "painting" is done by the system/application you're working on/with. In this case GIMP is mixing the colors for you and creates the color changes but still you alone (the artist him/herself) must give the decisions how the colors should be mixed. Layers are just a digital help to experiment more. I'd say a painting is a composition of colors, not just of layers, since a layer contains the colors.

It's beautiful. But this one and most of the paintings are not "paintings" but composings.
Real paintings have to be done on one canvas. The difficulty is to mix the colors, to built up paintings step by step and not to compose layers.

Look at your picture makes one want to paint and ashame of his own work at the same time. How many hours? and on a touch screen? or with stylus? I know I cannot do this with a just a 3-button mouse.
