Violet Hill by Charlie-Bowater Violet Hill by Charlie-Bowater
Started out as a quick warm up and then turned into a speed paint. Around 2 hours. Pretty messy.
Photoshop CS3

:heart:

Violet Hill - Coldplay.

And your inspiration for this is one of my favorite songs of all times, the end of it almost makes me cry sometimes...

Listening to Violet Hill makes me see a black and white animated music video in my head. I don't know why. Maybe I should make it some day.

Love the tone of this piece, suits the song well.

I feel colder just looking at this; it's a gorgeous nighttime scene. I can't decide how it makes me feel, though. On one hand, she looks peaceful and thoughtful, but the smoke and towering factories are - as always - depressing to some degree.

Amazing! Once I have my paypal again, I'll seriously consider getting a print.

Great painting! Awesome what you can do in two hours Charlie! I love the colors of this and the ominous feeling the industrial background gives. The grass has a nice softness too. It seems like the girl still has a grasp on what nature is left, only wanting to observe the city at a distance because of the negative ecological implications of being involved in such a society.

Some mentioned the legs as if they're too long or something; I think they're fine. I imagine she's holding herself up off the ground a bit (straight arms) and straightening her legs for support. Makes sense to me...

Anyway...really cool. This makes me want to get a tablet and try digital art so bad!

I took my love down to Violet Hill
There we sat in the snow
All that time she was silent, still
So if you love me won't you let me know


My absolute favourite Coldplay song.
(along with Clocks, Scientist and Fix You ^^; does anyone see a pattern in those?)

you have excellent taste in music my good lady. lol those are my fav coldplay songs too, I also love 'setting fire to the third bar' even though it's so painfully short. :P

After I have travelled so far
We'd set the fire to the third bar
We'd share each other like an island
Until exhausted close our eyelids


Have you listened to 'You Could Be Happy' by Snow Patrol?
