La Malbaie, Take 2

©2019, Emma Pittson, “Les Hautes Gorges de la Riviere Malbaie”. Photoshop.

Wow, I struggled with this one.  I never felt like I could get the colours right, or the sense of a multitude of branches.  I love trees, I love the idea of painting trees, but when it gets right down to it, people who paint trees have the patience of a SAINT, and that’s just not me.  Perhaps I should relax my own rules for this project and allow myself to use special Photoshop brushes in order to more easily simulate branches (and vegetation in general), rather than force myself to treat my digital work as if it were real paints…

  1. Hi Emma,
    This one was quite different from your previous ones. The
    quick brush stroke on the trees brings them forward with texture. I like that the background was simplified to basic shapes. Great job!


    1. Thanks Deb! These early ones are all slightly different from each other, but this one is definitely “more” different. I’m thinking of revisiting it and trying a different style altogether. We’ll see!
