i know you mention staying in the range of mid tones and less saturated colors at the beginning of a painting when one is still roughing out the lightings and local values, but as the values build up, is there a way to avoid things going too dark/black or highly saturated/pure white that they stick out like sore thumbs?
im currently learning how to paint landscapes/backgrounds but when i try to incorporate man-made objects into a natural scene, they dont seem to blend in with the sceneries.
Nice video! Thanks for sharing! You sound like a nice; I'd love to give you feedback. Unfortunately, I haven't seen many tutorials better than this. Maybe that's 'cause art is hard to explain? idk. I thought yours was informative. I'd like to know in particular what you're doing layer-wise. I always debate on whether to make a new layer for something or just color over what already exists. Multiple layers are tricky to work with - you have to remember what's on each one - but single layers make things hard to undo and don't allow you to simultaneously compare ideas with ease.
It looks so easy when you do it ._. But your working method is inspiring. Perhaps I should try that out as well as considering thinking more in values. I'm too big a color addict and that makes my backgrounds and foregrounds clash too much. Thanks for sharing with us
I think that the tutorial would be even more avesome if in the part when you said, during establishing the elements in your composition, that you have nothing to talk about here just mention the rule of thirds, repetative shapes etc. Anyways it's still great stuff man! Any hint when the ep 2 will be up?
