Island in the Wilderness

vietti 05 Feb 2023

I was actually kind of happy with this one when it dried. Still mixing a lot of mud in the foreground and waterlines are way too heavy. Evergreens are probably always going to be a struggle.



the sky and your background trees look great! I have found that foreground foliage helps with a ton of paint on the brush and just lightly touch - if you push too hard or don't have enough paint on the brush then you start mushing the colors together.

This is really nice Vietti! Your sky is beautiful! I agree with Eric (Centurion83) about your foreground foliage technique (he explains it very well). The more you try, the more you'll get how thin your paint has to be, how much paint on the brush you need to have and how much pressure to apply. Regardless, your foreground looks great.

For your evergreens, one of our members (Dracula) made an article on how to paint them successfully. Here is the link:

Hope this helps! 😀
