Concept + Digitial Painting Workshop

Was working on this piece in the workshop on Friday, trying to refine my earlier thumbnail concept of the scene where Malone is atop a tree to take in the breadth of the landscape. Was sort of struggling with this piece to capture a better sense of composition. So Phil came in to help with some more success.

My initial attempt

Phil's added help

The scene takes place during the evening, so I began to experiment with some colour before all was lost.


Overall, I was feeling kinda dejected with the progress of this piece as it wasn't quite working for me. I find nothing worse when trying to force yourself to work with a piece when one is not quite with it, so I ended it here to move on. In time, with some fresh eyes and clear of mind, I may return to give this composition another go. But for now, it remains as another experimentation to learn and move on from.

Evening Leo,

You are being very strict with yourself - which, of course, is good, but don't overlook your own strengths and successes; these developmental studies boast some very evocative effects...

Ah I guess I was being a little hard on myself. Thanks Alex and Phil, I always found it interesting when working on a piece you end up not liking, others surprisingly do, making for some enlightening points that you may have previously missed.
