So this was another green one, I didn't want to go for a tree themed piece again, as I stared at it I could see little islands surrounded by water emerge.
I worked in some sand coloured paint for where the little rivers would flow and gave a little more definition to the islands.

Did I mention I like the snow? Might have something to do with the fact I don't have to travel to work and there is a sizeable shop just round the corner so I don't have to venture far for provisions.
The kids were off school today and have seized control of the computer and my attention for various projects and homework, so not much chance of any work getting done.
Anyway, this was the yellowy one and as snow was on my mind I went for a snowscape. (By the way,"Never eat the yellow snow.") A tree lined pathway to a snowbound city.

So, on to day three of the enviros. No process shots for this one as it took shape really quickly.
Starting from the green/blue texture I could see waves, really big waves. The darker marks on the left I thought could be a ship caught in the storm.
So I just darkened the swell of the waves and highlighted their crests. The ship was laid on with the brush tool set to multiply (incidentally, all these pieces have been done in Photoshop elements two.) The little lifeboat in the centre was put in to add some pathos to the scene, the brave souls have escaped the stricken liner but have little chance in the wrath of the sea, hence the title, "When all hope is lost." As regards time spent painting for atmosphere gained, I am pretty happy with this one.

Continued building up the forms and the contrast.
Then I added a road in to lead viewers into the picture, the sunlight streaming through the leaves was added last. I think the final result is a little more friendly than what I was originally going for. More like the Night Elf lands in World of Warcraft, but still quite pleased with its atmosphere.

We have "The Ordained Destiny." "The Wotan."
