Sail to the moon. by Velica Sail to the moon. by Velica
That cypress forest near our first apartment in Alentejo.
The lighthouse facing the Atlantic, brave and lonely.
That narrow street in Lisbon with hundreds of windows bearing down on you.
The natural pools of Porto Moniz.
The cliff near Senj.
An old wooden bench in Esposende.
The wall of the church next to where my mother tried her first cigarete.

All these places exist at the same time even if in my head they have a season, a date, a colour and a reason.

Whenever I lay down and face the sky at night I try to imagine them all at the same time. United by this same sky.

I always fail to be omnipresent.

This is beautiful! It reminds me of a turn of the century comic strip by an American cartoonist, Windsor McKay, called "The Adventures of Nemo in Slumberland." It was about a little boy who would dream he was flying around the world on his bed every night.

Excellent! The theme is divine and superbly personal. What did you use for colours? What did you use for lines? What did you use for the blue-green shading over the fields?

This is a recurrent thought I have since I was a child. The sky as a unifying mean. Or something clever like that.

I used digital colouring with that "dissolve effect" rather than gradient.

The landscape is typically Portuguese :)

This is quite moving, the colors look fantastic, and I'm insanely jealous of people who are able to draw that kind of landscape.
