Here are my final submissions. That's five out of many 2"x2" thumbnails that I made last days. All the reference images come from my private gallery. I really enjoyed the challenge, good luck everyone!!
Hi all. First I thank Proko & Tiffanie for giving us this great challenge. I made 5 thumbnails based on my own photography of my county landscapes throughout all seasons. 2x2", acrylics. I had a great time painting those thumbs!
Phew! I NEVER do landscapes, so this was a welcome trip outside my comfort zone! Had so much fun painting these, it's a brilliant exercise for using colour and shapes, will definitely do it again. Please tell me what you think! Painted digitally using Photoshop.
Thumbnails -- 2 x 2 inch painted with gouache on Arches 140 pound coldpress, using 2 brushes, a 3/4 in flat and size 10 round. I was pleasantly surprised to discover that I like painting with larger brushes. i live in Minnesota so I decided to embrace it and paint snow and ice scenes. Great challenge to start out the new year!
Here is my submission for this brand new year's first #prokochallenge (Are these hashtags required here as well?) for @Tiffanie Mang 's landscape thumbnails! I'll post the references in the reaction on this entry. I am actually proud of them, I had to redo a lot but got somewhere in the end ;-) How did you guys do?
Hi! Wow this was so much fun! Thank you for organizing this challenge! It was years ago that I painted. So I got myself the basic colours of gouache and some large brushes and got started. I have chosen a series of landscapes from the Italian Alps. I learned while painting. Mixing the colours to obtain warm and cold tones and getting to handle the brushes to bring in shapes and details. I tried to paint them in a similar atmosphere. Hope you enjoy. I had such a good time! Definitely going to pick up the painting again!

Hi! Wow this was so much fun! It was years ago that I painted. So I got myself the basic colours of gouache and a some large brushes and got started on some landscapes from the Ialian Alps. Certainly a challenge, especially with the large brushes and the thumbnail size. But I had such a good time! I learned while painting, mixing the colours and getting to handle the brushes to bring in smaller details. I tried to paint these landscapes in the same athmosphere.
