Iowa Red Maple

I was inpired by Erik Tiemens and his use of Romatic lighting and color schemes. So I started looking at old master works from Albert Bierstadt and Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot. I remember seeing a bunch of these in NYC recently, absolutely beautiful.

"Red Maple"
Iowa City is a beautiful place. I love observing nature as it changes through the seasons.

I usually always fall back to the square chalk or round brush in PS. Today, I've added some variations to make my brush more random, to avoid that "perfect photoshop" look.

I also made a brush that simulates an oil palette knife.
