Red River by andreasrocha Red River by andreasrocha
personal piece...once again trying to learn from mistakes done in previous paintings to seek a more "fruitful" methodology.

On a side note: A funny thing is that when I post a new painting I don't have the slightest idea if people will like it or really is a shot in the dark. Once I start reading the comments (when I get them, of course) I realize all the mistakes I did and feel somewhat stupid for not realizing them. It's one of those tricks the mind plays on us. Therefore, I want to thank you all for the feedback, good or bad, as it helps me improve every day.

Updating the image as I read the comments.

Beautiful picture. I count 3 questions that come to mind: the first screaming one is "Why is the river red?" :P, the second is "Who is the man on the horse?" and the obvious followup is "What is he doing there?"

Beautiful work. :D
I love this so much, legitimately one of my favourite artwork on DA. As for why it is so good, the composition is just perfect, the way the river weaves in with the clifs. At first you think that the river is running with blood, then question that It might be just that colour naturally. 
This reminds me of watermelon aha great! 

Simply exceptional!

I would like to use this image as a cover for a historical-fantasy book that I am writing. is it possible?

Andreas Rocha are precisely your name and surname?
