I was watching another tutorial video by James Julier on sea sunsets . I was inspired to make my own, based on an old photo — I can’t place exactly where the original was, but it was a rocky beach, somewhere on the west coast near Santa Cruz. The project post gives more info and intermediate steps.
James Julier Mountains & Trees Tutorial
I watched and followed part of a tutorial on YouTube, from James Julier, on painting a digital landscape of trees with mountains in background. I departed from the tutorial partway through, but still a good time. https://www.notion.so/tamouse/James-Julier-landscape-tutorial-6fe9dc3b66c34b238e7d7e00973a619b
