    Salt Creek

    I read about Glazing with Oils, Acrylics and Watercolor and thought that I would try it in AR. I reasoned the best way to simulate this would be using layers. So that's what I did here. Start with something and glaze with a layer, then merge it down and do it again and again building up as you go along. Easy because you can just add what you want and erase parts you didn't like or didn't mean to glaze. Like the trees for example, you could glaze the background and go right over them and then erase the over the tree part and your tree is restored. Works well! I would think you could introduce a texture into the glazing layer by using a Stencil or Sticker or layer paper type of course. Also using the opacity of the layer you can control the amount of glazing you apply. Anyway give it a try and I'm sure you will like it.

    BTW, I mainly used the Oil brush with the pressure very light and the Thinning almost all the way up. I think I had the 'insta dry' turned on as well. You can try different things of course but those settings worked for me.

    You got a marvellous painting here! I like it very much and the palette is just marvellous, as well as the patterns from the trees ...

    I like this painting...and I too, use a glazing technique many times with my work
    Try to see as many angles of vision as possible...no single one of us has a "handle" on the whole picture.

    jibes ... I think you will agree that this technique does result in a more "painterly" look ... like Cezanne's boldly outlined trees and thinly glazed surfaces when he was going for watercolor effects in oils ... I never use layers, so I can't comment on that ... but in Salt Creek, there is a fair amount of scumbling in addition to glazing, and that may also be a consequence of layering, depending on whether conceptually you felt you were working from light to dark, or dark to light ... thankfully, in digital art we don't have to worry about drying time ...

    I like the colors and the overall effect. Very painterly. An attractive piece.

    neal,, very very nice. this has tremendous painterly look and finish blended with your own style..I use this technique a ton and found that it gives a richer more complex look to the colors you can't get any other way..
