Greetings to you Mark! Great job! Everything is very well read. As always, all the elements in place. Gradient is excellent, accurate. Meaningful, creative work. Sometimes it seems that you know what you are going to paint!
Thanks for the positive words 'Dark'; glad you get a sense of 'place' from my work. I like to approach each fractal as a unique otherworldly 'environment', which just requires me to represent it convincingly, and in as aesthetically pleasing a manner as possible.
