    hey there! i would recommend trying to work with values first, and once u get good with values, start with colors. bc like everyone will tell u, it doesnt matter what the color of anything is, if the values are working.

    cheers mate

    Hi Matteo. I can see that your potential is there.. I think what you need to do now is draw A LOT MORE! Come on, do it and show us

    oh yes and I do agree with mrd33ds about the values

    Coloring: As the other person said, work in values. It is actually better to work with traditional media. Play around with different types of graphite and charcoal.

    In the meantime, study color theory. Then get some paints (I suggest acrylic) and make studies so you will get a better feel for what color does.

    Also, landscapes can be very daunting if you don't approach them right. The best way to go is to get some paint and go outside and well...paint. If not that then copy photos. But don't just ape it. Break it down and study it. Just remember that each mountain, every cliff is a series of planes and shapes. This video series may help. It's by a member of this site.
    <object width="640" height="385"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/DG3hPBMv_Sk?fs=1&amp;hl=en_US"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/DG3hPBMv_Sk?fs=1&amp;hl=en_US" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="640" height="385"></embed></object>


    With practice you'll get much better. Just take a look in my SB and look at my last environments compared to the first one. lol

    He means how light or dark a color is in a range from pure black to pure white. The best way to understand how values work is to work in black white and gray (grayscale).
