    Help in Painting Backgrounds

    I saw a painting by Coops titled First Flower in AR3 which featured a pale yellow flower with a multi-blue shade background. I want to learn how to create this type of background. Would appreciate seeing a tutorial on how to create it, brush settings, etc.

    I'm not really sure why you moved this into the Technical forum. I would have left this in the Tips and Tricks section, because it's about learning how to paint with the ArtRage tools, rather then being a question on the program itself.

    To answer your question, though...

    Everyone will likely have their own way of getting an effect similar to that. What it will likely come down to though, is simply getting a number of colors onto the canvas, with whichever tool you'd like to use (be it the Oil Brush, Glitter Tool, Paint Roller or Sticker Spray) and then going over those colors with a variety of the Palette Knife options to smooth all the colors together. Each tool will likely result in a slightly different effect.

    Here's some testing I did using the suggestions above, followed by a quick image I made using them same techniques:

    Nothing is easy to the unwilling.

    Thanks for the suggestions, it looks like something I can play around with.

    Hi Logic
    What I tend to do is put down the kind of colours I think the sky I want to paint would be just mixing the colours around ( I usually use oils but you can you any one of many) shuffle the colours around with the knife in a few of its options and blend till it looks ok to me. Sorry but I am not very good at putting it into words but I think Someonesane's reply was very good and should help you lots. Its fun just to play around and remember to have fun
