The choice of view angle and the dramatic perspective creates such an engrossing effect, for the bench and the road in particular. Of course, your use of colour and palette knife work leaves me speechless. Thank you for sharing this with us!
The depth of contrast...somehow you have made the depths of contrast merge and look natural! Along with the reflection and the perception of being able to walk into this painting... I believe you have touched on something quite beautiful, yet mysterious here!
this is gorgeous! i absolutely love the colors - rich and bright without being too busy. it almost looks like you tried to take a photo, but rain made the world run (the bench still looks solid, making the rest look blurred). I love the effect. I want to take a walk there!
