Landscape painting practice

Lately I’ve been trying to improve my neglected art skills. If I drew as much as I wrote, I’d be fantastic by now.

Anyway, the internet is awash in tutorials. People are so generous with their knowledge! So here’s three landscapes I’ve painted lately, with the tutorials I used. You know, in case you’d like to try them, too.

I’m trying to do very different color palettes and styles, here. Keeps them different and interesting. Eventually I’ll work up to painting landscapes from real photos. 😀

  1. I love the details and color palettes used in all of these; lovely job!
    (I can draw characters all day long, but backgrounds? That…is by and far my weakness, ugh. Props to you for putting practice into it!)

    1. Thanks so much! I’m just following tutorials because my skills in this area are very wobbly. I look at people like James Gurney and just marvel.
