Painting small creek environmental tutorial

Painting small creek environmental tutorial. Landscape speed painting study process step by step. First, and probably most important in landscape or environmental design, is to pick your composition or viewpoint. It may sound obvious, but all too often people simply go with the first option that presents itself rather than wandering around a little considering the options a landscape presents. Where you stand in a landscape influences what you see in it and the angle you’re seeing things. It’s really great for artist to go outside and sketch environmental composition. It doesn’t have to be very detail, it could just be some sort of values and composition study, then collect them in your sketchbook for further use.

There’s something breathtaking about amazing landscape that motivates the artist in all of us to capture its essence though i don’t do enough of it. My goal in the coming months is to do a lot more environmental painting, interior, exterior, city scape and landscape. I just want to be able to easily paint them as I usually do with figure. As though they are just a bunch of shape arranges into composition piece, it is still intimidating for me to do environmental concept art.

A lot of times, You can also use your imagination, like often concept artist has to come up with something new so they usually have to gather lots of references (5-7 to many more photos) to compose a piece. It’s permissible to rearrange the elements in the landscape, if you think it’ll make a better painting composition. Another option is to borrow elements from different landscapes and put them together in one piece.

Here is a painting of a small creek with waterfall.

Below are step by step painting small creek.  Step one, I start off painting monochromatic with big shapes.  Two darker shape on the left and right are suppose to be big piles of rocks.  Step two, now I try to add shadow and separate the shape in to more recognizable elements.  Step three, I paint in some lighting on the water, pile of rock on the right.  Step four, at this stage I can paint with color since I have all big shapes in place I want.  Step six, I painted more detail for the rock, vegetation, and small water splash.
