Rather enjoyed this one. Having done a few of these now I’m getting the hang of substituting in my colors and brushes instead of his. He has his own line of bristle brushes to give a nice ragged effect for trees and grasses. I substitute in my synthetic flat brush for this reasonably successfully. Ditto for colors. He uses the Maimeri Blu brand and I do various conversions e.g. brown stil de grain = burnt sienna, primary blue cyan = cobalt blue.
Intermediate steps are below.
Some foreground trees – stage 2 darks.
Stage 4 – final detail. Branches on the trees, more snow shadows and some leaf detail.
