Beautiful landscapes! Painting outdoors has to be one of the hardest things to do. These are just wonderful!

thomas,
i wish there were secrets and shortcuts. most of it is just hard work. good composition to start, interesting shapes, clear seperation between light and shadow....'da basics.

Fantastic, Robh. They all come out great, but this one needs to hang over a fireplace or something! I like the color choice on this one and the previous piece you did in ArtRage.

Did you use a warming filter or a solid color layer with multiply & opacity to create the monochromatic palette?

The blues and greens would be especially hard to match by just "eyeing it" alone.

yes, i do use the "photo filters" in photoshop. they alter the images in a very nice/subtle way.

Robh; hehe, yes very true no secrets, shortcuts or magic wands.

I was just hoping for a little insight, small comments and thoughts - what you are going for, things you are experimenting with. It's the little thoughts and insights that build up to epiphany.

I think you might enjoy experimenting with color balance and selective color to explore color options. Also you might play with the unsharp mask with or without feathered selections to play with edge quality.

Always enjoy your posts, keep it up please!
