Advanced Walk through

Here is a walk through of how I made the hazy landscape painting shown below. I hope it proves to be helpful for someone! Click any of the thumbnail images for a larger view.


Firstly I splotched in areas of colour with a soft brush to determine placement:

Then I went in with a hard edged brush to add details. Basically I just swish-swish-swished a bunch of various green lines over each other.

Next I moved onto the middle ground area to add detail. Keeping the colours fairly flat and hazy.

The next step is to add smaller details and tweak reflections.

With a fairly thick brush I lay out the general shape of the tree line. Working from left-to-right I start adding in vague details/cleaning up the shapes:

This shot shows a little better how I cleaned up the shapes before adding in the highlights and shadows.

Paint in the tree. The leaves are basically a bunch of overlapping speckly brushes in various colours:

Finished - Thickened the haze, reduced the saturation a tad and tweaked the reflections some more.

And for fun here's the tweaked sepia style version I did.
