Black Sun S.: thank you very very much Candra H: Thank you again for inspiring comment Candra! mushroomz: thank you! Mr. Corlan: You are right. When I read your comment I realised that this was somehting I've been missing. Thank you Mr. Corlan. And btw: I really enjoy your stuff and links on your website have been most helpful too. Cheers. poetry man: Thanks man! It's very rewarding when I hear that someone get's inspired by my work. Your question: I don't think there is much difference. Only that you don't have that many shots when working traditionaly. When you paint with oils or watercolours, you have to be precise and think in advance. You have to compare things all the time. When working digitally, you have much bigger room for mistakes. bemota: Thank you very much! Yeah, sometimes I should capture some interesting lightning effects.
I really admire the fact that you done digital and then went to traditional mediums. The landscape work that you have is beautiful.
I started traditionally but it was mainly drawing objects, not landscapes. I now draw digitally all the time but I still really struggle with backgrounds. I have tried doing studies but I can never get it to a point where I an say its finished. I have thought about doing some traditional landscapes out in the field but I just don't know where to start. Do you have any advice?
I know like everything else its just practice practice practice! but is there any advice you could give me on how to approach a landscape scene?
Hello Tomas, great paintings from Croatia! Lovely color nuances and shadow-light contrast. I'm interested on what material are these done, is it canvas or what, in some areas looks like a cardboard but not sure Good luck and enthusiasm on your journey.
ArulaSky: thank you very much for kind words in the first place. I do have and advice or two. The biggest things is to think simple. Start simple, with big masses and biggest shapes. Do whatever it takes to see shapes instead of things and simplify them. Then proceed to smaller shapes. Correct shapes with the right color on the right places make realistic painting. And always work on all canvas at the same time.
And if you really mean it, buy this book. Purchasing it was one the best things for my painting I've ever done.
sony:thank you very much! poetry man: Thanks man! Juno: Thank you! They were all done on canvas paper, which pretty much imitates canvas. Ideal for less important work and for light travel. Those cardboard effects are there because I sometimes paint over old paintings and it leaves traces like this.
