Welcome Niall to the family and the draw!! Glad you joined in and also its a good thing you didnt fall asleep in your palette!
This is awesome! Very powerful and intense! Your use of colour is very bold!!! I like your alteration for its BG-it added to the violent nature of the image...hope to see more!

I like the surreal feel
great primary palette (how elemental!)
burning sky, cracked brickish earth
black wirey trees
gaping blue eyes
the piece is cohesive, it begs for the viewer to enjoy both purely for the visuals and the potential symbolic references/ narrative.
really enjoyed seeing this, looking forward to viewing more of your work

I too very much like the background alterations you did. You really brought out the starkness of the skull with the blues and the feeling of baking heat and desolation with the reds, blacks and yellows!

Really different feel, and very nicely rendered!

So surreal and imaginative a background for such a natural object.

It looks like some odd dream - very unusual.
