So today I'm in a pretty good mood so I decided to do two speed paintings of Albert Bierstadt's pieces. As a fan of westerns, I love the theme he depicts in his works. His lighting is phenomenal, so I decided to follow Noah Bradley's practice routine by dissecting the colors and values seen in Bierstadt's paintings.
So for each painting I spent about 20-30 minutes blocking out and perhaps another 10 minutes to touch up. Like my previous speedpaintings, I mix the colors without extracting them directly from the original paintings. They are by no means finished, but you at least get a feeling by looking at them. I really like the one with bisons, the sound of hooves and dirt being thrown in the air is vivid on my mind. Anyway, enjoy!
