Environment

Considering how much I love doing environments, it's strange that I don't do them more often.  They do take a lot of time and they never turn out as good as I imagined, so maybe that's why.
I started this one for fun, then decided to keep the riverbed dry so I could use it as a base for one of the Schoolism assignments (the one on water and liquid, I'm having students paint water into the scene).

  5. I hate this stupid comment thing. You can't see the image as you write. I was going to say: but Sam - if you put water in it, it will flood that little cottage thingy right out. How could you? I think it would, that bed, make a far better riding trail - romantic, moody, quite fun. Except the face in the bank would invariably spook the horses, and where would be then, poor things?

  19. Thanks everyone!

    Emiri: No time for that these days, unfortunately. If things calm down in a while I might pick up the effort again.

    Jose: Yes, overlay.
