    this is , of course, wide open. Where do you go when you want to get away from it all? Nature, dance halls? church? band practice? it is both wide open and close to your heart make us believe that this is a place for you that you recieve something you find no where else.

    Since music and reading are my usual spiritual retreat, I can't say this topic is simple for me, I must translate them into an environment...

    Actually that's really nice topic. I might give it a try. I have one real life place but just painting it wouldn't be very creative. It would be much more fun to create completely new imaginary place for spiritual retreat. I'll think about it.

    This is inspired from a real place near my parents house(sutton, qc, can), a creek called the the witch's cauldron. Situated on a quartz mountain this place has a tremendous energy flow, it used to be a spiritual passage to "the other side " for the natives. Sitting there you can almost hear them, fel them, see them running in the trees living in total harmony with their suroundings. This is where i go when i relly feel the need to have a deep conection to the universe and that big floating ball we live on.

    Farvus I dont think painting a real place lacks creativity, first you can paint from your inner experience instead of painting from refs or observation, second i think the subject requires more a mood representation then inventive architecture or suroundings...and third a concept artist is not always suposed to create imaginary location, or invent anything, but its job is always to create and convey a mood and atmosphere even to the most boring environement.
    when people stop critiquing its because they stopped caring

    maks444 - Yeah. I think you're right.

    This is how my spiritual retreat looks like. I'm half there beacause my mind travels to different times and places. That's why it's a mix of real life and imagination.

    EDIT: Slightly improved colors. I was a bit worried that fish dominated the work which is more about environment so I toned it down a bit.

    Farvus I love the first person viewpoint. I wish I had thought to require it. ah well... its probably difficult enough as is.

    I was just wondering, on a site like this would there not be a whole lot of people who see art as a sort of spiritual retreat? Just kicking that out there.

    Talking First Sketches

    Chaosrocks> you said "you guys need to get creative 180 people have looked at this and no one has weighed in (after 1 day)...didn't you see where it says, "even Imaginary retreats? Don't tell me you don't day dream".

    - I had to stew on this for a while. I have a dozen (at least) inner landscapes to which I retreat ...but choosing just one and deciding how to show it took some time. But I think I've got a starting place, at least.

    I'm in. And here are my first sketches. Any and all crits welcome.

    Here is my WIP, although I'm not sure what else I will do to it. My spiritual retreat is the wilderness of my imagination. Great entries so far

    I hadn't really looked into this yet...looks like I've got a couple of days and a good challenge for myself.
