02.05.2015

Back in april, I’ve finished this challenge called #21days. The last images didn’t make their way into the blog until now.

Study after Albert Bierstadt. As it turned out these are the swiss Alps, and Bierstadt spent quite some time in the area where I live. Of course I didn’t know that at the time I picked the image.

In the middle of april we went camping and snowboarding in Laax for the spring session. Of course I didn’t take my Cintiq-Setup with me, so I practised with some more traditional sketches of stuff off the internet.rinowenger_21days_16_stilthouse_2015-04-10

Back home, I tried my luck on this iconic masterpiece by the legendary Frank Frazetta.

For the final piece, I picked this amazing painting by Albert Bierstadt. At this point I felt I’ve learned quite a bit since the first piece of the 21days. Sketching the Landscape quickly, eyeballing the local colors and generally „rendering“ it worked out so much better than before.rinowenger_21days_21_bierstadt_2015-04-19b

It was a great challenge to do, and I recommend it to anyone who wants to get better at art, no matter the current skill level.
