I’ve been trying to do some exercises in Painter while my hand heals. It had been getting better but recently when I wake up my arm has been tingling on that entire side again.

I got this book from Don Seegmiller and ended up getting his second book on Painter because it was very helpful. I think books are my sex. I have way too many of them. I may as well use them to learn.

Sappy isn’t it? This book is no longer in print but you can look for some used copies: http://www.charlesriver.com/Books/BookDetail.aspx?productID=18873 His brushes are on that page as well a sample chapter. He does have a new book out called Advanced Painter techniques, but this older book has a lot of movies he saved which I find very valuable.

Been so tired. I probably won’t be able to finish my plate of commissions if this injury keeps up till the end of the year. I thought it would have healed by now.

Landscape Painting

This was just a small study of mountains. I wanted to try something out on my own with color theory after reading Mattias Snygg’s site on Color Theory

What color are the mountains? Color pick the shadow color and bright color and find out.

This was done in Painter. I used the Variable Flat Oils a bit of Aibrush Fine Spray, Fine Brush Blender from Painter Classic, and a Square Chalk Variant.

I need to draw more landscapes, I think drawing characters is overrated, we need environments for them to live in.
