The Birch Lot Speedpaint by Hathien603 The Birch Lot Speedpaint by Hathien603
Soooo! If you might have noticed from my most recent poll, I've been watching some pro artists on youtube lately and becoming VERY inspired! After watching this one by FZDSchool: [link] I was definitely feeling the urge to try out the techniques that he uses, and boy was it ever fun!

This was done with no references, just my own imagination, trying to figure out colors and composition for myself and playing around with the looser, more painterly style. As I said, I had a ton of fun doing this and I really want to try to do more in this style!

I challenge everyone to watch the video and try it for yourselves, you'll be amazed at how the process and techniques loosen you up, and soon you just get lost in the flow of painting, which is a wonderful feeling :)

This is supposed to be one of the pastures of Silver Stone Stables, so a little visual of what I imagine it to be like in early spring ^^

Time: About an hour
Ref: None

This is beautiful! I really love the use of saturated greens in the foreground, and the desaturated blues in the distance - they work really nicely together and really give it some depth. The little details, like the stream running into the copse, the loose blades of grass and that little bird in the tree really add to it :)

Lovely work!

It turned out so pretty! It's hard to believe it's a speed paint! Love the colours that you used, and the way you've transitioned the greens into the blues. Very lovely!
