Landscape Painting... Digital Style
(click image for the full size view)
This is not a new piece by any means, but it is a favorite. I painted this in Photoshop back in 2004 as just a practice piece to try to better my digital painting skills. I was pretty happy with how this turned out and I remember really getting into the zone while painting it.
Painting digitally is different than painting in oils, but there are also lots of similarities. For instance, when painting digitally I use a wacom tablet and (as in oils) start off with large brushes, then work my way down in size as needed. And there is a flow to both that seems to escape acrylics. It seems the digital painting has helped the oil painting and vice versa, of course.
