Hi Tiffanie This is my first final entry ' Bellarine Skies' - 5 x 5 cms - oils. Fun challenge. These are all scenes from close to home. I haven't included reference photos as I have copyright concerns. I am planning to work big paintings with the references I used. I hope this doesn't make me ineligible for the challenge?

Not sure if I did these right but I'll say the snowy forest one is my fav. I used the Sketchbook app and my inspiration came from google searches "snowy landscape" and "strange landscape".

Tried to get as many references with different shapes and colours to practice colour selection. Created in procreate. Giants causeway I was a little lazy with the shapes. Rhyolid Mountains was the most challenging because of the variability of colour.

Here are my 5 landscape thumbnails. Made with autodesk sketchbook. Had a lot of fun making them. All the images were taken during a camping trip over a few days a few years back.

Here are my submissions! I painted these from reference photos I took on a trip to beautiful British Columbia this past autumn. The landscape there is so different to what I'm used to, so I wanted to capture the mountains, forests, and dazzling sunsets. These are painted in gouache on watercolour board, using 6 colours plus white (lemon yellow, yellow ochre, cadmium red, permanent rose, phthalo blue, ultramarine blue). I made a bunch of other ones but decided on these for my final 5. Great challenge! Love to see everyone's work.

These are some of my favorite digital ones I've seen so far; they make me want to give some landscapes another shot with just hard brushes. Especially the cove and the desert/mountain ones are amazing. Thanks for sharing!

Submission 4/4 The theme for this one is "air" and was done in gouache, with a few touch ups in digital. overall, not my favorite. Didn't really used all the potential for some watercolor technique to get the foggy look, but when used some thick paint, i considered it more successful. This challenge was very nice to do, so thanks to Tiffanie Mang and proko team for putting this together!

Submission 3/4 The theme for this one is "fire" and was done in gouache. Tried using very thick paint and saturated colors to increase the contrast between warm and cool

Submission 2/4 The theme for this one is "earth" and was done in gouache. using the big brush was very challenging, but also made for some good shapes, and i might use more in future works.

Submission 1/4 The theme for this one is "water" and was the only one done fully digitally. Since i'm more comfortable with this medium, it was the fastest one by far

Final entry - for now. For this set I decided to try and try a story together out of the thumbnails. This is a combination of screenshots I took from Your Name and photos I took at the Fushimi Inari Shrine in Kyoto. Man, I really miss travelling. Painted with a Number 10 round brush (it's all I have) and the Caran Dache pan gouache set which is unfortunately difficult to paint thickly with. Constructive criticism welcome!

There are so many great submissions already! Here are my entries and the photos I used as references. I had a lot of fun with the challenge, and it helped me identify areas for improvement. I feel that my color choices are too timid and literal at times. Also, I got carried away with the details in a few of these. Any critiques are welcome.

Here are my entries and references, tried to "push" the colour quite a lot. These are in either gouache or casein, painted with a 3/4" flat or #8 round. I think I preferred using the round by the end. A fun challenge!
