New year, new painting!
Haven't really dabbled in environmental paintings in a good long while, so I thought I'd just play around randomly to see what I came up with and... well... this is the result!
It all started off with a photo I took back in Arizona of what appeared to be a mushroom cloud in the distance behind some farmland and desert. Built off that minor detail and what we have here is a full blown alien invasion.
In the beginning I had no clue what I was doing or where I was going to go with this piece, but it slowly evolved and I had a lot of fun painting this. Especially when it came to including some homages and Easter eggs of classic sci-fi films I grew up with; such as Aliens, Tremors, Predator, Terminator, RoboCop, Godzilla, Starship Troopers, etc.
Thank you and I hope you enjoy!
