While I’m still working on another large-scale painting project, I decided to do something fun and experiment with lighting, blending and colour.
Miscellanious mini sketches. I’m happy with how the ocean waves (top right) turned out in particular!
The water here is too blue, but I’m happy with the way the light hits the waves. The water seems too deep that close to the shore, though. I’ll have to fix that in the next attempt.
I started with a reference taken in the wooded area near where I live and completely deviated from it by creating a foggy sort of scene. It reminded me of an episode of salad fingers. That one tree cluster turned out well, but I’m too used to drawing certain tree shapes. That will be something to work on in the future.
