I love the way the cave opening is in the shape of a bear, or atleast that is how I interpret it.

Andrea said...

To me, it almost looks like and eye. Bravo!

Mad Guru said...

Very nice! Love the color.Great details.

bess said...

Yes, come out of the cave and stop looking at the shadows. It's beautiful Arvindh.

I love the texture in the rocks and the glow of the cave. The colors are wonderful. I'd love to see it when it's finished too.

Lovely, warm colours.

carra said...

I must say, to me this painting looks finished :) It is beautiful, it has depth, and the colours are glorious. Great work! Can't wait to see the finished painting!

Da Ghost Prod said...

i think as Carra, to me this painting is wonderful like this ! there's a great render lights, it must be more impressive in real looking (in an exhibition ?!). Thank you for your comment. :)

Natalia said...

wow, great perspective/composition

andrea said...

As soon as I saw this I thought the positive was the negative and I was looking at an abstract beaver or similar animal. Nice work -- would love to see it when it's finished.

michael dailey said...

nice view point and colors ur have chosen/love th contrast between the warm earthy tones and the lush green leaves

Chuang Shyue Chou said...

This has a feel of a North American woodlands. The conifers. May I know if you based it on anything?

Clever juxtaposition there. Composition. Well done!

Rrramone said...

Very nice!!

AscenderRisesAbove said...

i like the prespective of it; some pieces are meant not to be finished. this one glows.

Sherry said...

This is wonderful! It really draws you in. . .

MsDabble said...

Love the colors and the entry way into the woods.Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

Twisselman said...

Beautiful... Bet it looks great at its full size. The shades of reds and greens are in harmony here. I'm with Carra... looks finished from here. I'd really like to see it larger.

Brandi said...

The perspective on this is fabulous! Great job, looks like you have a wonderful start to this piece! Brandi

This is really cool! I viewed it last night and meant to comment on it (but I didn't). Thank you for visiting my blog as well--and for your kind comments.

mike facey said...

The previous comment was mine...I apologize. I am very tired!!!

Shano said...

Twenty-seven comments and counting pretty much means you rock. Lovely painting! Keep up the continuous beautiful work.

cristosova said...

There is a feeling to it of lying inside a womb, looking outside into the jungle forest. Perhaps with each reworking the trees come closer? Metaphorically speaking, reality is approaching?

Love the warm colors, the sense of depth.- Really good.

Jo said...

Looks like a view from a cave. Finish it when you can and let us see the full version. :-)

aynaku said...

your painting has that reddish, earthy colour of indian soil which I soon noticed while travelling there...interesting point of view, once can feel the forest seen from the cave. [tnx for your comment]

carla said...

This is very beautiful. I like the view from inside the cave...I only wish i could see it larger for the detail. It looks finished to me...what could you add?

AndyDoodler said...

Wow! Very nice!

Mia (a.k.a."The Great Blogbina") said...

Nice work! I also meant to comment on your painting "Sunset in California," -- the contrast between the sharply rendered, rich darkness of the tree's bark and the earthy, golden-red hues you often incorporate is striking - lovely.

(btw, thank you for the nice comments.)

Loni said...

Thank you for visiting my blog and commenting. Your artwork is beautiful! I love the colors in this piece

hartini said...

It looks finished to me and very beautiful! :)

This is great! Would love to see the finished one if this is unfinished. Did you base it on a photograph or was the idea of the view from the cave ur own interpretation. Its great, please finish it.

Suji said...

Sorry Arvindh, the last comment is mine. Don't know how it became anon, probably forgot to enter my identity. :)

Amy Zaleski said...

What an incredible sense of space you've created here. I love the view through the cave. I'll anticipate the finished product!

Kimb said...

Your submision for the jungle is wonderful and I can not wait to see the finished product. The scene is very similar to some dreams I have had, beautiful work!

Roesje said...

I love what you've done so far. The colors are beautiful and I love the feeling of looking out from a cave, or out from under a fallen tree. Wonderful!

Colours and perspective are very beautiful. Be good to see a higher res version of it.

it looks finished to me!

Holly said...

I really love the colours in this. It has a sense of mystery to it. Cheers!

Gabrielle said...

The colours and the perspective are great! You can feel the coolness of the cave yet outside you know it's steamy and muggy.

Stacy Kathryn said...

That is a really neat painting, I love the perspective.

marc said...

Absolutely beautiful! I love the colors...so bold and vibrant! Awesome job!

scribblesk said...

This is gorgeous!

arvindh said...

Many a time the interpretation of the painting turns out to be more creative than the artwork itself - this is definitely one such instance. Greatly enjoyed all your comments. Thank you all very much!

arvindh said...

chuang Shyue Chou,
You are right about the location. This is based on my sketches and photographs at Ash cave in Ohio, USA.

shyodo said...

Thanx for the comment,Arvindh
I think the Eye of the jungle is finished.
You might ruin it if you do anymore work on it........

kristin said...

Wow thank you for your comment...coming from someone as talented as you it means something. I love your art especially the trees. I love trees. I will have to post some of my tree photography maybe you would like it. I have been unable to capture the trees in my art so i just photograph them. Kristin
