So, here are two:

Beautiful!, other tools, other kind of control.

Love the tree painting!
If you would paint a view of Venice with this style people would think that Francesco Guardi is still alive.

martin wittig said...

wow! I love how you play with scale and composition. Excellent work

Oscar Grillo said...

Reports of Limbolo's death have been grossly exagerated.

Viva Limbolo!

A. Riabovitchev said...

limbolo said...

Chhuy-ing,
Not feeling too strong just now. (I am recovering from a recent attempt on my life.)
Yacin,
Don't cry...It's only a movie.

Mr Límbolo. I think, that every farewell is a little attempt on our life. Los regresos nos hace sentir cada vez más fuertes.
Thanks a lot for your comeback.

Elliot said...

Lazarus Limbolo (new from Calvin Kline)

Alina Chau said...

Woooooooo ..... Love that tree ... sooo majestic! Love the negative space on the top one too!

Miras said...

Good to see you're not leaving bloggers comunity, Mr. Ross.
Truly amazing paintings.
Just to ease my curiosity; is it both acrylics?
Comment on Guardi is absolutely right. I agree.

limbolo said...

Both are acrylic, yes.
Done a few years ago.

alberto mielgo said...

Oh Neil. This is pure imagination.
Fantastic, tree, fantastic everything.

Your paintings portray epic stillness/silence/tension. I especially love the dramatic contrast of sizes. Very cool!

sebhary said...

wow! that's a great acrilyc touch!
love your work!

Have been enjoying your blog for many months now, must drop a comment, first saw your work at Nelvanarama when you worked on 'Thief' a few...quite a few years back; I was one of many little munchkins from other departments that would skulk around and oogle your georgeous development paintings and drawings. They are even more georgeous, both the digital work, and the watercolour/goauche like these, a great pleasure to see. Best wishes maestro, Clive.

Ah, good to see you're still at it Neil. The 'tree' painting is the one for me - fun to interpret the ambiguous narrative, is the bull about to charge? Is it more afraid than the human figures? Are they hiding from each other? The giant tree dwarfs the bull & makes it seem more docile. Great colour palette on this one, could be Spain or southern France?

Jeff Durham said...

These are fantastic. The top one is very eerie and the tree is sublime! Great work!

Stef said...

one day I'll go to a shop and buy a beautiful book about "Limbolo's" work, the kind of "Albert Brenet" book, when you're just amazed at each paintings.

limbolo said...

Thank you all, for your generous remarks.
Regarding the BULLTREE:
I like Bulls and trees and wide-open spaces.
Regarding the top picture:
As Burt Bacharach and Hal David once said..."A house is not a home."

richtuzon said...

wow! Your paintings are so beautiful. I have been following your blog for a while now. I just want to say thank you for sharing your work. I am completely in awe everytime I visit.

Fantastic. I have to admit I thought to myself when I looked at these that your digital work had reached the point where you really didn't need to do stuff by hand. ;-) I need to look at blogs a little more carefully in the light of day.
