Something Just Like This by Alcho

Something Just Like This

This piece was an experiment gone wonderfully right. It was suggested that for some good practice on new challenges I use a restricted color palette, and I had someone pick one out for me. The colors were Purple, Pink, Pale Yellow, Pale Light Green, and a Light Blue. No whites or blacks! Was really difficult figuring it out from the start, but I am so glad I took the risk and ran with it!

The piece is of Kira and Sledge sitting on a balcony of one of the palaces of their city in ancient times looking out to the sunrise - thinking about how if they great life would be if they could break away and just stay in this moment together forever.

The piece was inspired these lyrics of the song "Something Just Like This" by Coldplay and The Chain Smokers.

But she said, where'd you wanna go?
How much you wanna risk?
I'm not looking for somebody
With some superhuman gifts
Some superhero
Some fairytale bliss
Just something I can turn to
Somebody I can kiss
I want something just like this
