very fine job acd. This is a good manner to show how using sketchup to build point of view and perspective and better to focus on your painting. But...
how many time do you need to build this type of model on sketchup ?

N.B. I went in the forum to see all your posts (and your website) and I discovered a lot of paints you did that I like much !

Thanks Guys. Ogside - the SketchUp model took about 20 minutes. To be honest, that's quicker than I could have laid out a perspective grid and sketched it by hand. And because it's in 3D, once the model is done, you can choose any view-point, find the perfect composition etc.

Like Dakey, I did a big "whoa!!!" when your painting came up. Impressive as it can be, and full of imagination and interest. I played with the give a way version of Sketchup for a while and decided there was nothing there for me, but what you have done here shows I was very wrong. Excellent!

This is such a great combination of tools. Hope you don't mind if I run with the concept! I have never used Sketch up, but am gonna try it on this series I'm doing.

It's true, making a perspective would have taken much more time. It's a good tool which helps composition. Anyway, great job above this model !

Thanks all. You are too kind.
Rick - I just use the free version. I have no need for the few extra tools that the pro version provides. Until recently the free version of SketchUp only allowed low-resolution export of images. The latest versions don't have that restriction any more, so hi-res exports are available. All the modelling tools are identical between free and pro version.

Skylar - be great to see what you come up with!

A masters touch! I like this type of perspective and I like the way you took a rather orderly drawing and made it look very intriguing and gave it that artistic feel. The use of warmer colors in the foreground and cool colors in the distance works to perfection. Most excellent!!!
