"The Hanging Gardens" - 2

first impressions -


these will be altered and in better perspective, but give the idea - the gardens themselves yet to be detailed for the most part, but will be presented after the 'floating' sections are formalized...

"The Hanging Gardens" - WIP

have not posted in many weeks, so am posting this - is still in the doodling pencil stage, but the composition is gelling in my mind, and soon will begin sketching sections to solidify my mental image... what is it? is a large imagined Asian landscape showing a waterfall at the fore end of a lake, almost at eye level there, with far distant view of the back end of the lake... on each side of the falls, there are homes with extended gardens that cantilever down the sides of the sloping rock, sort of like the rice paddies on hills, then project out into the space, connected to each other, a series of Japanese style gardens that circle around the falls, connected at the foreground right the other side of the chasm, with an extension to the fore left, showing an apartment and balcony ledge, on which resides a resting figure that is overlooking the gardens... and am figuring will probably be a 40"x60" sized work... in a way, this is a further exploring of composing along the lines of "Moon and Tea", tho the composing is all in my mind and has been slowly coming into focus so can begin the sketches - in other words, the mental view is there, but the dickens has been in the details... so stay tuned, more will be coming...
