45min. Painting Demo

This is one of my various techniques that I use to create a quick sketch. 45min. total.


I used different photos to collage a base for the painting using different layer options
I used lighten layer with a mask to get some city lights
started painting over and picking up some building details
created silhouettes with layer masking for the flying objectsUsed overlays and color dodges to enhance the focal point and push the light and darks.
