Forest Cathedral by Catherine Swinford

Forest Cathedral
by Catherine Swinford

Prompt: cathedral of the forest
prompted by: Nicole Cadet, during Sketch Fest #23 (January, 2012)


Erich Heidewald says: Awesome forest! ~ Reply?

     Catherine Swinford replied to this: Thank you, Erich. Unfortunately I had to decide between completion of concept and neatness. I went with completion of concept... obviously.

Irene Fernandez says: Beautiful! I Think the concept is great. The image is really inspiring. ~ Reply?

     Catherine Swinford replied to this: Thanks. I may have to finish it just so I can show you guys what I MEANT to do. XD

Elizabeth Barrette says: Gorgeous use of perspective, light and shadow! ~ Reply?

     Catherine Swinford replied to this: Thank you! I have always thought gothic cathedrals were likely inspired by unconscious memories of humans who still had close ties to the towering forests of ancient Europe, so I was pleased to do this one and tried to work the two together as much as possible.

Sue Rundle-Hughes says: This is so beautiful. I would love to walk down there :) ~ Reply?

Kim says: Magical work, even if you didn't turn this into a finished piece, this is truly lovely in its own right :) ~ Reply?

     Catherine Swinford replied to this: Thanks very much. ^_^

Nicole Cadet says: Thank you for choosing my prompt :) This is a lovely interpretation ~ Reply?

     Catherine Swinford replied to this: I'm glad you like it!
