Painter Sunset by rheall Painter Sunset by rheall
The isolated sunset from this failure.

I'm really bad at backgrounds. I'm even worse at clouds/skyscapes. And don't even get me started with freaking sunsets. But I wanted to do something, I wanted to teach myself, so I opened up a half-dozen reference photos, opened up Painter X, got my tablet ready, and had at it.

I'm not 100% pleased, but it is the best skyscape/sunset I've ever done. So there is that.

Colour is hard. You have to keep, like... changing it and stuff. :(

this is really lovely. painting skies is fun :) clouds, though... ugh!

I really like the colour here and the softness of the clouds. I actually saw a gorgeous sunrise yesterday morning and I painted it in Painter last night, but it kinda sucks XD Not anywhere near as pretty as this, anyway.

Oi, it looks very nice. Good colours and clouds. Still, I think the black part is... Maybe too black? Should it be that dark, with the sunset still enlighting it?

I really like this. The color schemes are just great!

I think the clouds could use a little defining. Probably with some white? And the background seems a little too hazy. But it is really quite beautiful. I especially like the feathery wisps in the top left corner.
