I have had the stomach flu since a week ago, and hadnt been painting or well. moving very much if I could help it :P
But it felt so good today to get back to painting on a new foresty canvas ^^
Today for Painting with Planties I wanted to show you quickly the first 2 layers that would go into a forest further into the background!
Hope you enjoy and let me know if you have any questions, tips or comments!
|this was as far as i got during the fu- those were angry sick trees :P|
|i can never keep anything clean.|
We have here - Hooker's Green, Cadmium Yellow, Titanium White, Prussian Blue Hue, Burnt Umber, Lamp Black, Payne's Grey (the only Golden Open color I used) and Cobalt Blue....
|those are quite some tilty pine trees.|
Since I can never draw or paint a straight line. This is what my furtherest away trees look like lol. I used the same colors for the lightest part of the gradiant and added some more blue and black for the color of the trees. Then I added a bit more and made darker trees on the outside.
|no this is not straight black! Paynes Grey, Prussian Blue, and a little Lamp Black|
|fan brush ftw!|
|the effect from afar|
Adding only a few solid lines for branches, I fill in the whole area with foliage to create proper looking pine-esque trees in the distance!
|zoomed in a bit|
From here, I will add more gradual layers of trees with varying amounts of detail to them to create a sense of depth in this night forest scene.
Thanks everyone for stopping by!
Hope everyone has had a great Easter holiday weekend and are settling back into the work week ^^
Till then ~
