Homework Week 2-Essentials of Painting Waterfalls

Here is a high resolution photo from which to base your painting. I recommend you download it so you can zoom in. You may leave out the bottom evergreens or find a way to make them work. Please crop your photo. It is a lot of work for me to have to crop them on my end. Some of you are taking your photos that include part of your surroundings. You can use "Paint" under accessories to do the cropping so I only get the painting.

Re: Homework Week 2-Essentials of Painting Waterfalls

Beautiful photo, Johannes, love it!

Carol Lee is right - WC will resize it to no more then 800 on longest side... Could you, please post it to reference image library and provide us with the link? Then we will be able to have it in high resolution.
Thank You for the great lesson yesterday!

You could upload it to the library at 2500 x 2000...it would then download as high res

Re: Homework Week 2-Essentials of Painting Waterfalls

You will have to excuse me, but how do you download the picture when there is no link. I just see the picture. I could copy and paste, but I assume there must be a way to download it. Please tell me how, thanks))

Re: Homework Week 2-Essentials of Painting Waterfalls

Hope you don't mind, but I worked all day yesterday after class to paint one of you reference pictures from the class. This is totally different from my usual paintings. I've been trying to add a lot more color into paintings and not copy the photos so much. Here's my waterfalls.

Re: Homework Week 2-Essentials of Painting Waterfalls

Oh my! This is gorgeous but oh am I feeling overwhelmed. Where to start? I guess I need to just 'dive' in. lol Seriously this is my first time to take a class from Johannes and I sincerely appreciate the opportunity. I am learning so much.

P.S. I also would appreciate a higher resolution photo than what WC is allowing here.

Re: Homework Week 2-Essentials of Painting Waterfalls

I missed the first class --really enjoyed yesterday. I had during the week done the reference photo but didn't post it since I missed the class, and after watching all the critiques am glad I didn't ( I redid that one as well, and am posting that here as well.)






Thanks for the wonderful classes!!!

Judy, I really like your painting! It has such a soft, dreaming quality and is so well composed.

Re: Homework Week 2-Essentials of Painting Waterfalls



Another fantastic tutorial. Thank you Jo!

I thought I would try a more abstract style, I like the way the colours came out but not too happy with the line down the right hand side of the waterfall and I think I need to do some more work on the trees.

Re: Homework Week 2-Essentials of Painting Waterfalls

I have not done the homework before. Can we crop the photo (my sketch cuts a third of it off) or do we need to retain as much of the original as possible?

Johannes, could you tell us where this is? I like to be able to answer someone when they ask about the location. Thanks for going over and above the call of duty and giving us feedback on our work.

Thanks so much. As I look at it more, I realize I have to put more detail in the lower 1/3 to the left of the falls especially where it is closer to the focal point. It will be fun to see if Johannes see the same problem as I do.
