The Weekend full of work...

10-20 min rough color studies based on photos #1
10-20 min rough color studies based on photos #2

Below I would like to show to You a rough, compositional sketch of the scene I want to finish. It's titled Good Morning, and I am trying to figure out how to create an atmosphere and a mood for sunrise and a kind of magic. I also did some experiments with Gamut Masking about which I've read in James Gurney's book. Gamut idea is very interesting but it needs a lot of practice. Afterall I need a lot of practice with color, which I can feel, I suppose but I have to organize a knowledge [theoretical and practical] to be more confident and clear using it.

An october update...

Test in composing a landscape

Stylized study of Zhukovsky's Painting

The day before an autumn

Below are some tests in composing harmonious palette in painting. These are small quick paintings around 10 minutes each, and I was mostly focused on colors. I was looking for informations about harmonious palettes on the blog by great Mr Howard Lyon - Building Harmonious Color.
I am always struggling while composing palettes. Trying to be original is not the best way to do it, because there is always too much colors then... So I am looking always for great information about color.

And here are few totally different things.

Development done for fun focusing on mood and composition

Thank You I hope You like it.

Color and Light design and a Landsacape is something that interest me most! I would love to do it and only this.
So I would like to present to You two images I did from memory. A landscapes and very inspiring lighting conditions happened before my eyes when  I was driving a car...
I will add more memory sketches from my trip to mountains I had last week.
