I'm Not Painting a Forest!

I painted a forest.

My 100th blog post, whooo!  Painting digitally is fun, but it's sooo easy to get caught up on details.  So yeah, this painting was our first one for second semester.  I did lots of little thumbnails, because I wanted to tell a little story with the painting as opposed to only doing an exterior landscape.  Whether or not the story is successful, I'm happy with the way it looks.  Gotta say a quick Thank You to Margaret for giving some helpful tips while I was working on this.  Her last name also happens to be an anagram of my first name!

I reaaally tried hard doing a different colour scheme for this painting, as I usually do a lot of blue stuff.  I tried that once last semester too, but it failed quite miserably, haha!  Anyway, Here's the final painting followed by a whole bunch of process work!




  1. Hi Pierre,
    I keep trying to find out: why you changed the light direction..????
    And yeah your very brave ..changing colors..
    I like them... echte Pierre kleuren.
    Good job.

    1. Dankjewel ma. Heb dat licht ding al uitgelegd aan je, dus ik zal het niet allemaal gaan uit typen hier :)

  2. Your last choice is my favorite. I just love colours and the others just don't have as many. :)

    1. Thanks! Yeah, with the different tonals, it was difficult to pick a colour scheme, but the lighter one worked better with the palette I wanted to use, so that's the one I went with :)
