I took the Peter Hammer challenge and used my own spin on it but will try another follow his wonderful steps. It took 17 minutes of fun.

His original:

My first step which was using layers from Shadowhouse Creations:

And my final step of using Topaz Simplify using a painterly filter:

Thank you Peter for your generous sharing of technique!

Hi everyone – I’ve been through all the photos of the finals & the WIPS (did a bit of speed reading through the comments) & they all look fabulous. This workshop is looking more exciting & dynamic than the Birds!

I’m way too far behind to make comments individually, all of them are inspirational!

Thank you too to everyone who has commented & encouraged me along the way.

I have just had a reply from Susan Kimball with the agreement to translate her lovely image Bucolic Buffalo.

Hi there to everyone : I have posted the Agreement with Rhoufi to translate his “Monet’s Garden – the Lake and the Lodge” Monet has always been one of my favourite Old Masters and I am so exited to do this painting! Rhoufi also emailed me some of the other photos he took on this trip, and it has been an inspiration to me – such beautiful colours, flowers, textures in his photos – thanks a lot Rhoufi, I really appreciate it! I hope to start with the painting by tomorrow, and will keep you posted!
Well done to all the participating artists, you ROCK!

Here’s my digital image after playing in GIMP……um, forgot to time myself, but I think it was a bit longer than 20 minutes, I like most of it, the black bits are too dark, would’ve been nice to lighten them up a little…so much fun, thanks Peter :))) PS: Love your book!!!!!!!!!

New Agreements! Yay! Congratulations to Terri Maddock and Susan Kimball, Robin Monroe and Lina, and Lina and Janne, on your Agreements.

@Peter, I look forward to reviewing your book! Congratulations!

@Susan Kimball, I’m so happy to see that you took the Peter Hammer challenge. And I see you used Topaz Simplify with excellent, painterly results! What favorite technique or techniques from the demo or exercise will you add to your digital arsenal?

@Kathie, there is a real “alien landscape” aspect to this. Cool. I realize that you are using GIMP and so were out there on your own. Did you come up with a technique from Peter’s demo that you’d love to use again? And if so, which one?

@Tammera, thanks. I am painting this with brushes, no knife yet. I’m tempted to do the rock with knife. So far, very smooth finish on satin-smooth board.

@Robin, thanks. My answer to the drying time is to have 3-4 oils going at once, and move between them. It also allows me to keep an eye on a piece, if you know what I mean— checking it out, allowing the subconscious mind to work on what it needs, while it’s in that stationary phase. It drove me crazy, the first few weeks of oil painting, last year, before I got the rhythm down.

@Antionette, isn’t Rhoufi wonderful to work with? So generous and supportive. Make us proud, Antionette!

“Landscape and Light Demo Exercise”

Okay… I must have missed something somewhere, but here’s my 20 min.

F.A. Moore F.A. Moore 36485 posts

Qnita, Love the simplification effect and the gorgeous subtle coloring. Tell us what you used of Peter’s demo, and your favorite part!

Qnita Qnita 5558 posts

My favourite part is to know what went wrong… :-) My contours aren’t so great. Want to make time to make it better…
Well. I love the Layer with the soft light mode to bring out the shapes with the brushes… If I can practice more, I would love to translate one of the works for this workshop, but I didn’t even had time till now to start my translation of the trees…

F.A. Moore F.A. Moore 36485 posts

@Qnita, there’s plenty more time in the workshop. I hope you can start your trees. I love that soft
light mode painting too! Maybe if you tell Peter what you did, he can help you with the other parts.

In fact, Peter mentioned that my work could stand some depth, by darkening the foreground.
So I just played with it another 10 minutes and came up with this one:

More Experimenting with the Peter Hammer Challenge

Before Peter’s suggestion After more soft light layer painting

I must have been thinking ice cream with butterscotch sauce, Peter, as opposed to Australian outback.
;)

Hey, I like this one better! Thanks for the suggestion!

I just follow his instructions… thought the 2 radius on the maximums and minimums where too much, made it only one… also at he median… change that to lesser…

Robin Monroe Robin Monroe 196 posts

my first WIP on Linaji’s Valley of Lights. This is going in a whole new direction than the last project, it seems it wants to go a bit more abstract…maybe Lina’s love of abstracts is channeling through me… As I was laying out the intitial sketch for the mountains I kept seeing more shapes between the shadows and I drew them into the layout. I loved the center tree in the original image so I put that in curving it a bit more and thought I needed some boundery lines for the tree. Did not notice the tree on the far right at first thought it was greenery in the hill and once I noticed it I thought it would go great next to the curvy tree. To add a bit more balance or just a bit more, I added smaller trees a bit lower. I will be leaving out the large tree on the left. The curve leading up to the curvy tree is another boundary line for the fore front grasses of which I may be adding a few flowers. Anyway I’m not sure where I’m taking this will just go with the flow and see where the paints take me, I do like the layout and I think I’m really going to have fun with this one…

Sounds like a fun adventuresome startup, @Robin!

I can’t believe how much amazing work has been going on in this workshop! There is an amazing amount of talent here. I was tied up for a few days and I have no chance of commenting individually on all you WIPS & finished works. I have no end of admiration for thos of you who can paint… my painting skills stop at a yellow Sun (with rays!) in the corner, a house & a flower next to it :)
This workshop is on fire!

The weather here in the U.K. has been quite appalling, and it hasn’t been until today that there has been any light anyway, but I have been out (on the motor scooter!) and have some shots in the camera. I will see is I have something I captured today that I can share my workflow from, that also fits the theme…

Cool Neil. That would be fun!

Hello everybody!. I am following with much interest the evolution of this workshop, also due to a very hectic schedule I did not really have time to stop and comment.
I am truly amazed by the techniques and creativity used.
@ Cindy – I just love your imagination – those sheep are a delight to watch :)
@ Leslie – your trees are amazing. I love the soft pastel look
@ Frannie – your interpretation is stunning. I love the way you used the palette knife, creating the 3D effect.
@ Lynda – your landscape is gorgeous, as always.
@ Robin – I am really enjoying your translation of Lina’s “Grasses”.
@ Linaj – wow, what a great composition. You are truly inspirational.
@ Tanmera – I love your choice for the greenish hue. I am not sure how you are going forward with it, but I like the sky from the second and foreground from the first image (the ones in green). I just came upon the last posting on page 10. LOVE that sky. Would you consider darkening the foreground on both sides?
@ Claudia – your interpretation came out very serene and inviting. Lovely!
@ Cathie – I am totally amazed by the impression of branches created with the tissue paper. Exciting. I have to give it a try once, I never used such before.
@ Beatrice – the colors bear your signature. Excellent execution and impression
@ Dianne – all I can say is “waw”. Beautifully created
@ Robin – your translation came out beautifully. The tree really coveys a great perspective
@ Terri – your progress of the translation is fantastic. I am wondering if starting from one corner is a “pastel” only thing :))
@ Elizabeth – your Place to breath came out wonderful. Appears that someone just rested under the tree. Love it!
@ Lana – I truly like you interpretation of Peter’s work. You really have a great imagination :)
@ Byron – I am looking forward to see the final. Great colors!
@ Edy – excellent textures. Waiting to see how it develops.
@ I am sorry if I omitted to mention somebody. I really watch every work evolving from a first to final phase. Great work everybody!

F.A. Moore F.A. Moore 36485 posts

Gosh, @Mary, you just covered about 15 pages in what looks like record time; but I know it took quite some time to put that post together. I’m so looking forward to you joining us and seeing your first work in progress. Thanks for the compliment!

Finally, after a week of rain and darkness, the sun came out and I was able to paint a bit. I am not sure where I am going yet, but I wanted at least to have sort of background for inspiration:)
