I have in mind to paint a Florida wetland area. I started blocking the color and shape with Twisted Brush, using a personal reference for the sky (thanks to my cousin Iris).
|BLOCKING (Twisted Brush Pro)|
I usually try to stay with one software, but besides using Twisted Brush Pro Studio, I went "software wild" and also implemented Corel Painter Lite, Photoshop Element 10 and SBP 6.
From blocking in the colors, I saved the work in a .psd format and finished painting the sky with Corel Painter Lite.

Once finished with the sky, I was ready to paint the "wetlands". I copied the sky and flipped it vertically on the next layer to reflect water. I stared at the scene before me and started thinking about other scenarios, what if?
I took the layers into SBP6 (Sketchbookpro 6) and thought of adding a sailboat and changing the scene into an ocean.

As the painting progressed, I thought, wouldn't it be cool to add a city skyline, leaving for the weekend, thereby calling it...TGIF
I added the plane taking off (with part of an airfield):

|WIP4 (TB program)|

| Guess I will paint Florida Wetlands another time :).|
