Good job pandora!


This is my 3rd two hour sketch.
In a post by dstipes to lukx

"do another version with painting dark tones first.

I would probably start with background and work my way forward to darkest forground colors. I do not think that is as important as the concept of starting with dark tones to register atmospheric effects then doing light colors. "

This is an attempt to follow the directions of that post

Robert,

Very nice! I really like those trees!

The results are terrific. What is your reaction to the "dark tones first" approach? Was it easier, harder?

Any suggestions or observations from your painting process?

(I am asking so my students can see and understand how other painters work.)

dstipes :D

Hi dstipes,
Working with the dark tones first, made painting so easy. For me it made the process sooo much more fun.

I started with the sky, and progressed forward from there.

First the sky


then the clouds



each area had its own layer and name











after laying in the flat shapes I went back and started with the mountain and moved forward from there. The last thing I did was the clouds.











I was surprised at how much I was able to accomplished in the suggested two hour limit for this tread.

I hope this was clear enough.

My next attempt will be a cityscape

Hi there, I'm another student of Stipes, and I've only been painting for the last 11 weeks, and I've been nervous to post, but I thought I'd get some feed back.

Same 2 hour limit, and the original with the speed painting are in cronological order from first to most recent.





and my most recent was a challenge to do some thick atmospheric perspective...

Nice Job Peter,
here is a trick to make them a bit more photo realistic...

for example in this image
copy merge all and paste it on top of the layers
change it to overlay with %50 opacity

in some cases you should use a mask to apply this overlay only in some parts ...

Nice job pandora,tobsche and Peter.

I would like to add a note to my process. What I've learned comes from other artists.I didn't make any of this up. Example, their is a great tutorial on the home page on how to paint mountains. Their is one somewhere on a post on how to paint clouds.

The challenge for me is to apply the experiance of those artists who are willing to share and have already solved the problem.

The other thing for me is the doing, the looking, the drawing, the having of my own expierence.

Post to you soon.
