The suggester said: I like this piece because it's amazingly attention-grabbing just from the tiny thumbnail view, and when you full-view, the immense skill becomes incredibly apparent and there is just so much to see.

Very nice execution
love the way you created light.
What tools did you use? It's wonderful!
I used watercolor on an arches watercolor block (pre-stretched so I don't have to go through the hassle of stretching my own paper), I then sealed it with a clear acrylic coat and then went over areas in oil.
this is so beautiful

I think this is simply amazing. The bright colors and contrast caught my attention immediately from the tiny thumbnail view while browsing. Light and dark, hot and cold, soft edges and sharp... This piece has everything! And I love the way everything seems to have an inner glow, not just the lanterns. The effect is surreal but gorgeous. Amazing job on the entire thing!
....just wow!! I can't explain how great this looks but you did a fantastic job!!
