The Gleaming valley looks exactly like it sounds. It’s already very bright when the sun sets, so it’s recommended to wear sunglasses while looking directly at it. There are always clouds hanging around the mountains, which surround the valley. The stone of some of these mountains reflects the sunlight and has a yellowish tone to it.
This matte painting was created during the „Photo Real Matte Painting“ Workshop with David Luong in summer 2015. The assignment was to create a Landscape.
