Inspired by Gulliver's Travels through Castle In the Sky, along with the Central Coast of California where my wife and I like to visit.

Trees are native Monterey Cypresses, flowers are invasive Sea Figs.  Architecture is meant to evoke a "Victorian Hacienda," blending the two predominant styles of the region.  Geometry is impossible, but I feel like that kinda goes with the reference material.

This is also a continuation of a series of experiments with larger clusters, in which the majority of the piece is worked with a 2x2 brush, single pixels are avoided entirely, and single-pixel-wide marks are avoided where possible.  It has some interesting  consequences, like eliminating antialiasing and encouraging more sculptural forms.  I wouldn't go so far as to say I prefer it to other approaches, but I'm enjoying it insofar as it is breathing new life into a medium I had otherwise hit a wall with.

Reminds me a lot of PJ artist Vemigvan's work with the fat pixels. Lovely piece.

Digging the style. The vegetation has an impressionist feel to it. Light and shadows are also nicely rendered.

Very cool work!
