"The Beholder's Dreamscape"

The intent of the piece is to depict the concept of the observer and the observed of the waking life into a dream experience. This concept has been discussed by both quantum physicists and philosophers or free thinkers... where both talk about a change in the perception of physical reality by including the observer as a part of the very system he/she is observing.
Could lucid dreaming be such a state of awareness within the dream world?.. where the observer is also a part of the observed?? The piece is an ARTISTIC depiction of a wanderer of the dream and waking worlds who begins to journey through his dreams fully aware of his state of dreaming.

29.7 42.0 cms
(Scanned it in two parts and stitched the two images which turned out to be a pain in the ...)

Media: Coloured pencils, Pigment liners, India Ink and Ballpoints on paper.
(The colours in the scan are a bit off i feel)

This is my first piece using Derwent coloursoft pencils .. they are absolutely wonderful to work with! Looks like i may stick with them now,,

Critique encouraged :)

That is excellent, but please, there is no such thing as a quantum physicist. The fields of physics are divided based on what people are actually working with e.g. condensed matter, particles, plasma, astronomical phenomena etc.. Whether or not the stuff you're dealing with involves principles of quantum physics does not come into it.
