Today’s landscape study painting. I thought the rock looked rather cool. I did use some dry brush but mostly stuck with the stanard on for detail. I dont know if that was a good move or not. Ref from Wikimedia

Although I do these studies on a regular almost daily basis, I haven’t gotten into the habit of uploading them to the blog after finishing them. I feel like I’m starting to loosen up. As with many of my studies, I used Wikimedia Commons for references (CC-AB).

The Promise

For this painting I wanted to tell  some story between the two characters in the foreground and paint a ocean\sunset scene with some sort of stone structures protruding out of the water. I was surprised how quickly I was able to paint this. It took me about three hours to complete. I didn’t smudge this time to blend. Instead I used as soft round brush like a airbrush.  I enjoy value painting so much.  Let me know what you think 🙂

Update: Shrunk down the birds on the tower as they where too big. Lighted up the sides, made it too dark. Cleaned up the tower farthest in the distance

Created in Photoshop
Time Spent Painting: 3 hours.
