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.
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.
This was a fun project to do over the past couple of weeks.

This week, March 24, 2021, we started a new project in class. The source photo is from our teacher’s own collection, taken on a beach around Manitowoc of Lake Michigan.

Many macOS users will likely recognize the source for this painting as one or the background images provided in the recent past. Every time it would pop onto my background or go by in a screen saver, I’d just give a sigh and stare at it.
Jokingly naming the painting “Ellie Font” for no typographical reason, just the way my brain works.
Again, the blog is over on Notion.so:
We started a new painting class project in February. It’s a picture our teacher took while touring around near La Crescent / La Cross.

Doing things a little differently this time. Instead of writing my blog post here, I wrote it using Notion.so.
