This piece took an incredibly long time to finish, but I have finally completed this master study. It is originally a painting by the old master, Albert Bierstadt and I have digitally painted a copy of it, as it can be an excellent way to learn.
I advise other artists to use master studies as a way to progress, because of the great amount of visual information you can gain as a result of just copying what the original painter has done. This is my very first study and I can already tell how much I have learnt, especially when painting landscape aspects such as rocks and trees.
This was done using a cintiq 13hd and photoshop CS6. Hope you like it 🙂
