Celtic Cross by alarie-tano Celtic Cross by alarie-tano
Aquarelle, 11 x 21 cm,
2006 Simon Schmidt


At this picture I was for the first time content with the grass. At all previous tries it looked not realistic enough. This realistic depiction succeeded mainly because of the excellent description of John Howe.

Wie hast du das Gras gemalt? Mit ner Abdeckpaste und nach dem Abrubbeln Feinheiten ergänzt? Sieht echt gut aus.
Reply
:iconalarie-tano:
alarie-tano Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2008  Student Traditional Artist
Ja, erst grün grundiert, dann mit "Rubbelkrepp" von Schmincke maskiert, das dunklere gemalt und dann die Maskierflüssigkeit wieder abgerubbelt und eben Feinheiten wie die Übergänge gemacht.
Eine genauere Anleitung findest du hier: [link] , da ist auch ein link zum echt guten Tutorial von John Howe dabei auf dem meins basiert.
