Hey, i'm new here
Done a few things in painter since i was first introduced to it about two years ago when i was in an Imaging class run by Patrick Jones, but I've never really amounted to much.
Picked it up again recently and tried to get my hand in with a few speedpaintings...
I thought this one was rather good, so I figured it'd be good to go over it a few more times, adding some detail and whatnot.
Ive got some ideas about how to approach the fire, and the smoke and clouds... ...but I'm at a total loss when it comes to trees and foliage and the landscape in general.
Wondered if any of you fine artists around here could offer any tips, or advice, or even some critique - i'd really appreciate it!
PS. this is painted from memory.. bushfires almost destroyed the town i was living in about 5 years ago, it was very much like this - fire sweeping over the hills and towards the little town in the valley.
