Digital Paintings of Spectacular Skies and Fantastic Storms

Breathtaking skies full of intense light and billowing clouds dominate the digital artwork of Alexander Rommel known artistically as Evergreenarts. The German artist’s digital paintings of glowing skies showcase the imagined glory of nature focusing on the play of sun, sky, water and wind.

Certain sc-fi and fantasy aspects give his glorious skyscapes a magical setting. Beams of light descend down to the pinnacle of a pyramid and ships lift from the waves to float through the clouds.

A dazzling aurora borealis reflects over a lagoon and immense thunderstorms and tornadoes loom over otherwise peaceful surroundings. There is an undeniable magic to these fantastic digital creations.
