My smile for the week is once again one of my paintings. I did this one last Sunday after Midnight Raven, which turned out so well (considering my “abilities”) that I jumped right into another. Well! I think the results speak for themselves, unfortunately.
While the Midnight Raven tutorial told us exactly how to paint the raven, along with everything else, the Alien Butterflies tutor did NOT. They focused on the background and clouds, which came out okay, but then basically said now do the butterflies. Huh? I need HELP! I couldn’t follow along with their quick, perfect strokes, which is why my butterflies look like a 5-year old did them (no offense to little kids).
Yet, I learned how to layer clouds, which is important… and I discovered I have a fan brush in my set, which makes splattered stars a lot less messy than the dopey way I did them previously. I am so excited about my stars and clouds that I’m going to paint an outer space scene next!
Btw, the name of the tutorial is Mystical Visitors, but I’m calling my work Alien Butterflies. 👽🦋
