I'm completely unable to do landscapes, so here's a practice pic:

landscape practice

One and a half hours, I think. Which is awfully long for this piece of crap. Ah well.

oh my gooodness....honestly you're too hard on yourself, I am so impressed. I have a horrible time with landscapes and this really LOOKS like a landscape.

Also, this may be a tall order, I apologize if it's out of line but...would you be willing to post some close ups? I would love to see your technique a little closer.

Thanks for shaing this! :D

Thanks. :) Lately I have the problem that I don't like anything I paint. And landscapes are even worse than people. ^__^

Closeups are here: http://pics.livejournal.com/technoelfie/gallery/0001f0ye?.f=1

AHh thank you SO much! X*

Honestly I'm stunned, it's so beautiful. You captured the look of the town and clouds so well. I think my problem is that I use the stame style stroke for EVERYTHING...You did a great job using different techniques for each different object in the painting...ahh really the use of color is so awesome. X)

My next question is if this is Painter or OC or...something else?

Again, thank you for answering all my questions! ;A;/

Photoshop only, in this case. The one at work--it's legit for me to do landscapes with it since I might need a matte painting or two eventually. ^__^

I have bought Painter IX for myself a while ago, but I'm not using it as much as I used to.

Actually I'm experimenting to become bolder with color. I don't have any color sense at all, so I really need to practice what works and what doesn't. XD

It's beautiful. You are far too hard on yourself. The clouds and colors are just stunning.
