Today’s Art (23rd September 2014)

Well, I was still interested in painting landscapes and – since I was also looking for old stuff – I found this old digital photo from 2004 that my parents took of Mother Ivey’s Bay in Cornwall. And, after asking them if I could paint it, I decided to turn it into a landscape painting.

I’m quite proud of how this painting turned out, although I had to use digital effects for the clouds in the background though. I’ll also include the original photo for comparison too.

As I’ve mentioned before, if you’re interested in learning how to draw or paint landscapes based on photos, then be sure to check out this article I wrote back in April.

Note: Although my painting is released under a Creative Commons BY-NC-ND licence, the photograph below it is not released under this licence.

And, here’s the photo that it’s based on:
