Digital art_2021. Crocus

in OnChainArt2 months ago (edited)

Hi friendfs!

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

1_.jpg

There will be oil painting again today

Choosing a neutral canvas color

3_.jpg

And size - by touching this button (it simply rotates the selected canvas clockwise and displays the resulting parameters)

4_.jpg

Yes, let's get started

5_.jpg

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

6_.jpg

and from the drop-down list I select the line "Add reference layer"

7_.jpg

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 ona 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

Like that.

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.

10_.jpg

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)

13_.jpg

I apply chaotic strokes with a brush, according to the reference

14_.jpg

And then I choose a palette knife Palette knife 1026 from the toolbox, which creates a grunge texture - those very characteristic "uncombed" strokes.

15_.jpg

Yes, it turns out very, very realistic!)))

16_.jpg

In the same way, I move the reference to another corner (by calling the box with auxiliary tools and choosing a Сaliper tool)

17_.jpg

and continue to work - first with a brush,

18_.jpg

then with a palette knife

19_.jpg

When the background is almost ready, I take another palette knife Palette knife 1002, creating long, even strokes

20_.jpg

and apply some diagonal stripes for dynamics.

21_.jpg

Using the same palette knife, I paint the crocus, choosing colors according to the reference.

22_.jpg

Then with a textured Dry Brush

23_.jpg

I even out a color transitions between the petals

24_.jpg

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?
