I showed this image to a computer animation instructor yesterday. He did not figure out it was a computer generated image or a painting at the first glance. Good! Because I applied the high saturated hues and high contrasted values deliberately to simulate the computer coloring. These days people are used to see those dramatic combinations for all kinds of images and pay less and less attentions to the subtle approach toward image makings. I wanted to see how people react to see those coloring in a simple painting. My students liked it. It became more like a Disney forest, but I enjoy painting, too!
