Digital art_2021. Crocus
I decided that in the previous drawing lessons in Realistic Paint Studio, far from all of its impressive resources were revealed, so it is worth continuing to experiment with digging into the bowels of the program.
Today it will be an imitation of writing with oil paints using a palette knife.
In reality, such paintings look very picturesque, attract attention with their, at first glance, chaotic, "uncombed" strokes.
Well, a tryout of work with a reference and mixer palette ...
So, I open the program and go to the folder with my projects
There will be oil painting again today
Choosing a neutral canvas color
And size - by touching this button (it simply rotates the selected canvas clockwise and displays the resulting parameters)
Yes, let's get started
And first, let's add a reference layer to our work.
I found such a gorgeous crocus on Pinterest
In the layers palette, click on the gear icon
and from the drop-down list I select the line "Add reference layer"
When you load a photo into the program, a Сaliper tool immediately appears - a tool responsible for resizing the image
Since my canvas is large, and the photo from the Internet is small, I change a size so that it is convenient to work with it - I just pull the stylus on a corner markers.
And I click OK
This time, I decided to try, as in traditional painting, to do everything on one layer - both the imprimatura and the drawing of the main object.
Therefore, the sketch began to be done with a brush, the thinnest - Fine Round Brush
Along the way, I tried different brushes, how they mix paint.
I settled on Dirty Flat Brush for the initial brush strokes on the canvas.
And in order to find the right shades (unfortunately, the sample is not taken directly from the reference), I temporarily switched from a set of paints to a palette, where you can do mixes (button at the top left, above the palette)
I apply chaotic strokes with a brush, according to the reference
And then I choose a palette knife Palette knife 1026 from the toolbox, which creates a grunge texture - those very characteristic "uncombed" strokes.
Yes, it turns out very, very realistic!)))
In the same way, I move the reference to another corner (by calling the box with auxiliary tools and choosing a Сaliper tool)
and continue to work - first with a brush,
then with a palette knife
When the background is almost ready, I take another palette knife Palette knife 1002, creating long, even strokes
and apply some diagonal stripes for dynamics.
Using the same palette knife, I paint the crocus, choosing colors according to the reference.
Then with a textured Dry Brush
I even out a color transitions between the petals
And I'm finalizing with the same grunge palette knife Palette knife 1026
Here's my result!
And presentation, of cause!
Looks like a real painting, isn't it?
And another option, more magical - I very like digital effects (added in Photoshop)!
Thanks a lot if you visit and read my tutorial and you like my digital painting experiments!
Have a nice and creative day in these winter !
I am familiar with the brushstroke, and very close to it - bas-reliefs are another one of my passions. Crocuses are the first spring flowers, they are the first to give hope that spring has arrived. The painting is very delicate. As it turned out there are many more functions in your program😊
