Acrylic landscapes class project with opaque layers

For this step in the class project we added details in opaque acrylic paints, building up a sense of depth and form in the different planes of the scene.

We also did a little more with glazes, like in the sky. I’m not sure if I’m just getting used to doing a glaze wash or if my large wash brush is too cheap, but I get a lot of lines happening. The brush dries enough to split apart at the end like a fork, which makes me think it’s just not holding enough water and paint for a wash.

But I don’t particularly like doing skies anyway, so I’m not too concerned at this point. I’d like to do some landscapes that are more like 2/3 land, 1/3 sky because to me the land elements are a lot more fun to create.

The next step is more details in the architectural elements.
