So far the daily exercises (self portraits, compositions) I did in Fine art section were fairly successful when it comes to learning new things. It would be waste not to continue anything in the same spirit. I thought about it for longer while and finally decided to start new personal thread dedicated entirely to environments. Of course there is sketchbook but I like how I can see the whole spectrum of work from just one subject and how it changes with time.
I'm planning to start simple and try to stay within relatively small amount of time for each peace (about 1hr). For daily exercise it always worked when it wasn't very time consuming beacausethe whole thing is already pretty exhausting mentally. I hope I'm going to just keep doing it.
Here's something for a start.

Fantastic. Really looking forward to updates .
Brown or not brown? I'd like to see more a mix of colour. Compositions are looking great.
What I meant was cools in warm pictures and warms in the cool pictures. But please carry on as I'm enjoying this thread.
Black Spot - hehe. Ok.
Conscious attempt to not repeat myself too much and put something different in every little part of the piece. Unfortunately at the cost of realism but cartoony can be good too (man, I'm so inconsistent :/). What mostly matters to me right now is that I'm leaving my comfort zone.

On one hand I hate to repeat myself but on the other hand it feels so awkward when I look at all my environments done so far. Looks like done be mentally unstable person. I can only hope it will get more consistent in future.
I came up with this one after playing with color sliders. The mix of gray and azure color almost immediately made me recalll this type of landscape so I grabbed some photo and added few missing colors and details. Luckily the clouds on the photo had some weird purle rainbow-like effect going on at the edge so I instantly got focal point for my picture. This would be way more boring with just empty sky.
Super fast acrylic sketch. I wanted to fit into 8 minutes beacause that's how much I could record with my digital camera . Painting on large format is so much fun even though the final result is not so impressive. I going to do more of that.
The video is 2x faster than the original.
