The rain

It’s been raining here a lot the past few days. It’s the perfect opportunity to sit inside and make art. I love to draw, but I want to improve my painting skills too. I’ve been watching a lot of tutorials on YouTube and tried researching different techniques. I find painting a lot more challenging and time consuming than drawing. I think that has to do with what I’m used to and not.

I wanted to keep this painting a bit dark and cold. I’m happy with how the different layers turned out. Something I think could be improved is the white highlights on the leaves. Next time I’ll use an even smaller linear brush. Other than that I’m happy with it and I’ll keep painting.

  3. It reminds me of a scene from a Ghibli film. Calm, cool land detailed with peacefulness.
