A "slightly-too-slow-to-be-a-real-speed-painting" sketch. I made this about a year ago, and then dragged it out and tweaked it a number of times since - but it never felt finished. Maybe it never will be! So rather than draw out this meaningless process any longer, I'm just going to post it and move on with life ;)

You have caught a great contrast between the ships and there background. Did you originally paint this landscape? Only I tilted my head the the right and felt the piece works well.

Thanks! BTW I've had several people tell me they prefer the image turned on its side - I might try a version of it this way! :)

The landscape is some kind of artificial structure (in my mind, at least). But I like to leave things to the viewer's own imagination :)

Fare enough good answer. I only asked that question as I do that my self with certain pieces. Start off either landscape or portait and find out turning the piece around changes the way we read it and sometimes it makes the pice more dramatic.

I kind of do that too - it's basically dealing with something as abstract, and looking for an accidental :lightbulb:

Sometimes I use photos, but a lot of times I just start with random shapes (usually in black&white). It's a good technique :nod:

Thank you Steve.

The shapes approach works well - try it with a few layers ghosting through each other, and moving stuff around. Suddenly, something will "jump" out at you! :)
