Speed Painting: Rock of Gibraltar

First speed painting in a while – The Rock of Gibraltar


Hi folks. It has been a while since I got on with some study.

Now that things aren’t so busy it’s time to get learning again. I recently took a trip to Gibraltar and while I was up the actual rock of Gibraltar I took this photo.

Here’s the finished piece. Took around 3 hours.

I started out with the lasso tool, then worked with a hard edged brush, then got really uncomfortable with all the solid fills and hard edges and went to town with a default chalky brush. Oh and just a little touch of photo texture over the top but it doesn’t make a major difference to the finished piece.

Stay tuned for more painting studies, freebies and other cool stuff. Also note the new Twitter link! Follow me there for daily links to cool stuff!
