Longview by LadyChristina Longview by LadyChristina
Longview
Medium: Water colors/acrylics
July 2012
About: Felt like doing some washy interpretations of some clips from the musicvideos that affected me the most, throughout my life. I was well young at the time, but I was among the (Green Day) Dookie-generation nonetheless, ten years of age when I saw the Longview video for the first time, and it made a huge impression. Finally, something that expressed how I felt! I didn't quite know what masturbation was, though, but most of the lyrics I couldn't understand anyway, so it was more like a feeling than an actual understanding. And that is the most important thing: to feel it. Later, I got it, too.
This is one of my favorite parts of the video.
Link to the video - if you don't know it and like this painting - GO WATCH! I mean it! NOW! :p [link]

What. The. Fuck. Is this PAINTED?! I saw the preview and I thought it was a picture. This is excellent! Perfect! Amazing! Awesome! Super! Cool!
This is really awesome work, this is so... So much details. Wow. Really, this is some good shit. Especially the feathers everywhere. So much details! It's awesome, because I really thought it was a photo or screenshot or something!

This is so cool. I wish I could do this. I'm not that good.

I'm sure of it I put this in my favourites!! This is really awesome!

My compliments again for this amazing, supercool work!

I strongly disagree that they should have become anything less than an amazing band over the years. Obviously, when you've been around since 1988, you can't stay in the same phase of life and create the same kind of music. I have enjoyed their journney and loved every bit. I DO love Longview, though, the video is amazing. Thank you :D

This is a great scene you painted.
I believe I have never seen anyone paint pictures like this.
Maybe I do not know much?
The feathers look ultimately realistic.
Oh heck, I thought it was a photo from the thumbnail as well.
The colour choice is perfect for the atmosphere. Quite like a classic photo.
And the person's insouciant facial expression is what I love most.

I find it very difficult to paint pictures from videos. But I swear it, you do it amazingly.
Congratulations on such an awe-inspiring painting.

Damn, I just learned a new word - insouciant! What a pretty, pretty word!
Second off, thank you for the inspiring comment!
I have to give up lots of the credit to the amazing, amazing video itself. It is so utterly brilliant I can't even describe it. [link] <--- if you don't know it, check it out. Even if you don't care for the music, the atmosphere is - amazing. The guy who directed it is fantastic. Thank you so much for commenting! :D
