Painting Landscapes

Posted in Art on April 27th, 2009 by Becci – 2 Comments

It’s been a while since I’ve been able to mess around with digital art, but this weekend I managed to finish a landscape piece. It’s my second attempt at landscape, and I had to to keep in mind that all the elements to an evocative landscape piece such as the foreground, background, dominance, and light were effectively used.

I wanted to make it really really good because this was made as a belated birthday present for my awesome friend Estel. :D I hope you like it.

I seem to have a thing about putting butterflies into my work, as well as lots of mossy, misty, green landscapes. I’m not very good at the originality thing, but meh. Time to fix my body clock!
