In addition to your technical tools, make sure you take time to observe color and light in photographic prints, and outdoors. I personally think painting experience is a key ingredient in effective matte paintings, even ones that are totally digital and may not involve actual hand painting anymore. The composition design skills and lighting knowledge will go a long way to making shots easier on the eye, and allow you to cut corners.
