Ah, More Landscape Thumbnail Paintings... Biomes!
Landscape thumbnails, it's been a while, hasn't it?
I reignited my interest in these fun but sometimes tedious thumbnail sketches recently, by deciding to do little sets of paintings, all based off a certain biome.
In these two sets, I first focused on capturing the colors, lighting, mood, and composition of an African savannah-type landscape. In the second set, I think it's pretty obvious that I was focusing on an arctic biome...
Some of these I'm very pleased with, others I can see where I need some work. Overall, these colors were all chosen just my observing the source photos. Compared to my first landscape thumbs, I feel as though I'm slowly improving.
