here is my latest work. I used an own photo I took during our last Thailand holidays (Koh Samui) early in the morning as reference (No tracing, though). It was an exercise for me to paint clouds, how the light shines through and the waves as realistic as possible. I think once IŽve painted a handful of these pictures IŽll be able to paint such realistic landscapes from my mind. That was my main intention when painting this picture (= exercise, practice)
I used a high resolution (2200 x 3000 pixels) for this image. If you are interested I may post some close-ups later...
I know I have mentioned it a few times already, but I really need a kind of blender brush that allows much more subtle blendings and transitions. (as in real life painting with oils and acrylics) Using the palette knife was quite a "pain in the ass" :wink: (It took me many many hours to blend all those colours and strokes) Hope to see it in Artrage 3! :wink: (This would be sooooooo cool!!! 8) )
Personally, I like this picture because I see some progress in my paintings already...
Thanks for stopping by
