Kitimat by painted-bees Kitimat by painted-bees
This is not a matte painting.

A good bro of mine commissioned me to repaint an old image I had done of a view from our home town, Kitimat BC. This is a very familiar sight to me, as it was just a five minute walk from my house, and was right in the middle of our beautiful little town.

Photographs could never do it justice. [link] [link]

Here's the old 2006 version of this painting, for those who are curious!:

So I was watching The Hunger Games for the first time earlier today and they briefly showed this nice scenic lake and I thought "wait a second...I just saw a painting of that place last night!"
Hahaha what are the odds that was just weird.

Lovely painting too btw
