Digital Painting #7

Monday, March 21, 2016

Painting number seven was wrapped up this past weekend, and it went by way faster than number six. After watching far too many episodes of the Joy of Painting, I was all amped to paint something and decided on “Wooded Foothills” as my subject. Without too much more text, here’s the finished piece:

Wooded Foothills

Ross’s method for creating foothills was pretty easily adapted to digital media; the same goes for the pine trees. Previously I had hoped to work on something with architecture, but I realized I’m not ready for an indoor scene just yet. Verdant Catacombs will have to wait a bit longer. From start to finish this piece was about ten hours over a week, with very few restarts compared to past pieces. I re-did the sky and foothills a couple of times, but I think that’s all part of the process. I also learned how to use the Mixer Brush tool in Photoshop CS6, and it made a world of difference! I hope to finish up my Adventure.js project next and then start another painting soon after.
