Welcome to the course we are excited to be hosting this and happy our sponsors have helped make this possible.
I would love to find out a bit about each of you beyond your general introduction and would be fun for people to get to know more about your peers.
To start out what are some of the challenges in the past you have had with environment design or painting in general. List one thing and one rule you feel you understand well or would like to know more about.
For example I would love to get better at painting clouds not sure why this eludes me but I never seem to get the effect I want without turning to photos. One is I feel I have done a good job of working on is Scale diversity. Making sure I have a diversity of small, medium, and large shapes, or contrasting sizing throughout the image.
I find sebastio salgado to have great examples of scale diversity and depth in his images.
For sky’s I turn to Steve Messing and Dylan Cole
It would be great to hear from others and see examples of your own art or some influences. Post an image or a link and very happy to have this first free course to learn with others.
