And yet, because I want to work on my versatility as an artist, I decided to do a couple of speedpaintings of nature scenes, in this case forests.
Because, I wonder, mostly, if I could become good at it. I haven’t always been good at portraits. That took a lot of practice, too. The biggest difference, so far, or the biggest obstacle, for me, is the texture. My portraits usually don’t have a great amount of texture and that is fine because they work well without it. But a forest is the very definition of texture. Yet I don’t want to be drawing every single leaf. I don’t draw every single hair on a head of hair, either.
It’s so hard. But anyway, here are the paintings, both only took about 15 minutes.
Tell me what you think:
