This monochromatic landscape I was trying to work with mood and lighting. I try and only use photography that i take myself and this was a shot of the Capital of Washington State, down in Olympia. I would like to get so good at painting architecture in my paintings as this is where i would like to lead myself into the future. Architectural concept art the medium of my choice.
Fortunately painting in Photoshop is nice and i enjoy working with the grey values before i add any other colors. I want to practice and getting in the habit of thinking of the depth of a painting to create a sense of mood without having to worry about a lot of colors. I soon will be working on where the light is in conjunction to the composition for the format of the page. So the light information directs the eye through the painting. In this case I'm still working with brushes i like and making ground that is feasible that has depth even when in the outskirts of land you can barely see.
