I couldn’t come up with a name. But, thank god for the internet. There is abstract art name generator. Needless to say it spit out, the title “Effective Shade” and I said good enough!
For this beautiful nighttime scene I followed a tutorial by Clive5art. This guy makes it look easy. Well… It isn’t easy. I couldn’t get the clouds right, the trees right, or the sky the way I wanted it. But it turned out okay. I really enjoy the shading of this piece.
This painting I did on a 8″ by 10″ canvas purchased at the dollar store. It took me roughly 45 minutes for this painting. Clive5Art is a British artist, who posts lots of different art tutorials. They are quick and what he calls “easy” paintings. One thing that I really liked about this video, is the set up of it. You can always see what paint he is using and what brush he is using. However, he moves very fast through his work. I ended up watching him three or four times, to check to see what I had missed. I think I will also go back and check out some of his other tutorial videos to see what he has done in his other “painting challenges”.
