Another photo I captured in one of my walks... which actually inspired two paintings. This is the first one titled "A View From Above". Painted with Twisted Brush Pro Studio.
|Blocking, which is done with a pen and blender|
|The sky was finished, I duplicated it and flipped vertically to capture the bottom and/or water on another layer.|
|To capture the feel of "flying", I tilted the entire "canvas".|
|I drew and painted in the plane's wing.|
|A View From Above final. I added a little bit of filtering to darken the entire scene.|
I've smoothed out the sky and created water. Embellished it with the palm tree, rocks, sailboat and pelicans, viola! In the past, I like using the same reference photo a couple of times to create entirely different scenes. It's challenging and fun.
