Here's a successor to one of my earlier work

I always thought of myself as the kind of arist that didn't paint much from emotion, that I'd just get a random idea and go with it, but that's not always true.
I got this idea shortly after one of my best friends passed away.
It may look depressing, but I really like it. And knowing my old friend, he would've liked it too.
Now that I think of him, I don't think about death anymore. I think of someone who lived his life fully, the way he wanted.
Here's to Mandrak, the only man who could out-drink me :)

Alriiiiiiight, first up is a painting I made a few years ago.
The idea came to me many years ago when I was painting with traditional oil colors, after a few paintings I thought the palette looked like a piece of art itself, like a little colorful landscape.
I found an old sketch and decided to paint it, though digitally this time.
The city used as reference is Budapest, Hungary, where I met my wife. We actually met where the thumb-hole of the palette is located. That's something I didn't think about when I made it, but my wife later said that the 2 water/paint drops falling through the hole is us falling in love. :)
