I’m still playing with my old techniques and the Van Gogh styles. I thought I would try another one from scratch and see how it turned out. I love those thick strokes and patches of color. The deep sunflower yellows, his olive greens and rusty red tones. I love Van Gogh’s outlining. In part, the lines were what helped to make his images so intense. I may have to stop boring everyone with these and move on to other styles. ;o)

Created in Photoshop using a myriad of natural media brushes and multiple layers to achieve the thick oil look and rich colors. I have been experimenting with different ways to present these. There were 7 layers and took about 5 hours to complete.

    I’m impressed how you did this flamingo. Great curves and textures. :)

  • Thank you Josette. I found a bunch of old sketches with my notes on how I wanted the textures. I tried out a few of my brushes until I found the ones I wanted and I was off. :o)
