Lowlands Splash - digital painting video

A while ago I promised to upload a digital painting tutorial and today it's finally done.

I recorded this over a month ago but it's taken me a while to do the voice over and editing. Anyway, here it is.

This painting is based on a section taken from a plein air seascape oil painting I did at the start of the year.

NOTE: As I always say, you can watch it here on the blog but I'd recommend going to Youtube and viewing it at full size (480p).

It's a pretty simple sketch and is unlikely to win any digital painting awards anytime soon - but it only took around 45 minutes to throw together one evening. Another hour or so of tightening up and adjustment could turn it into something special.

Thanks must go to Chris Wahl who has made a heap of Photoshop Brushes available for download from his Art Brushes blog.


  1. Thanks for putting that up. I was rather surprised that one brush could do it all. It was fun to watch. :)

    By the way, your paintings have been safely delivered to Dad and Iris's...It's out of our hands what happens to them next :)
