Thread: Landscape drawing

  1. #16
    Wanted to start 2015 right so I took a day off work and spent it creating what I plan to turn into a series of landscape paintings. Originally painted this scene using ArtRage, then used that as reference for a traditional oil painting.

    Dimensions are 32 x 16 inches by a 1.5 inch profile. will post more pics when I get the hanging wires screwed in and hung up.

    I REALLY like the dusk intersection. It feels like a wet, rainy sundown. Nice use of the media. I love texture in paintings, and the colors are great.

    The stylization is really nice too because you can't necessarily tell if the reference was 40 years ago or last week. Give the audience enough but keep them guessing.

    I love this too. Reminds me of the very first Rambo film.

    If you like different mediums my I suggest PaintStorm. http://paintstormstudio.com/index.html It's $20 and is a mix of photoshop and painter. I use it on my surface pro 3. Nice thing is it has a perspective setting so you can plaint in depth.

    Isnīt the oil price to expensive nowadays


    very nice painting from macb, lovely mood, and you get the feeling of that it has rained during night and the morning and sun is rising, trucks and folks are off to drive to work.

    I would also like to go back to basics and paint with oil, I had some sets with expensive oil colors many many years ago, but I also didnīt have room for it, and the ventilation
    wasnīt enough, but I loved the media.

    would probably not have time though, I would also preferably pick up modeling in clay and sculpting before painting.

    Looks like the painting by macb is done with pallette knife only?

    Thanks for the comments guys,

    I haven't found using oils much more costly than using acrylic or other paints.
    Though it depends where you get them from and what type. Michael's art store is probably the most
    expensive place. Winsor and Newton also has a brand called winton which are cheaper since they use less pigment.

    I use gamsol as a solvent (which is odorless) and a medium of 50% stand oil and 50% gamsol for more blending.
    the only time I've needed ventilation was when varnishing or trying some damar varnish in a medium.
    For the most part I like the smell of oils

    Good eye Prometheus!!! I did use a palette knife for the urban sunset painting.

    Wow PaintStorm reminds me of Aura video paint MSherak!

    hope to see some of your paintings...
