Its supposed to be all hush hush, big impact once its done! I showed you theres a wolf last week at painting with planties.. this week I have been working on the creek bed at the bottom of the painting.
So, itll be pretty cut up, and excuse my HORRIFIC photography.
Bear with me! Lets see how I went about doing this...
|lol, I give away so much right ;) hehe. Simple water so far..|
|though you may not be able to tell, the varying shades above, created more varying shades here!|
|I decided to add some extra rocks on the right hand side later btw :P|
Here I started adding some definition to the rocks. I didnt have any reference photos for these, so I kindve just followed the awkward shape I made for each one.
|no camera flash :O painting mostly at night can be tricky|
I then added some green in lightly just to add a bit of mossy algae feeling ^^
|here the new open acrylic colors really helped me. I am such a golden fan boy|
I used one of my really opaque new colors called Terre Verte Hue. Its this cool sortve greyish green, which just glazed on without any mediums. I just added 2 coats of this color straight up to create some movement and light reflection.
|oh the subtle changes!|
|note to self: never pursue a career in photography|
Also some fallen leaves...
|starting to paint the frogs in yellows, browns, and a teeny bit of green.|
|because in my world, flowers could totally grow on rocks in a creek!|
Then I added some nice little flowers, to draw the eye upwards hopefully and back to the main figure, which is to the left ^^ Oh, and you can see a little bit of my baby deer as well!
So, you can start to see a little creek world coming to life at the bottom of my painting! this is around abouts where it is right now, and though I know there will be some adjustments made to this later on, I am pretty pleased I got a good amount of detail going on. The more I add, the more I learn!
Hope everyone has a great Tuesday :D
