This was a study of a stock photo. I was trying to recreate the image with minor alterations purely through painting digitally.
Personally I don’t think it went that well, my painting skills are nowhere near where I want and need them to be, but considering I have never had any official training with painting I feel like I’m not at the worst starting point.
So studies, some reading theory and observing the work of others. Hopefully I can see enough change in my painting that I will become as comfortable with colour and paint as I am with sketching.
All it takes is a lot of hard work and posting every single piece you are ashamed of to the internet.
