Fresh Paint #2 colour adjust

 

Irvine Portal colour adjust2

This is a bit closer to what I was aiming for. A darker vision and imagined in flat matt oils.

I used the hue tool on GIMP and played around with light and dark . It’s easier to adjust things when starting from a digital painting. The colours are flat already and simply changed.

Fresh Paint trial

FreshPaint-back lane

I tried the Microsoft Fresh Paint app on this study.

There are various “media marks” on this but mainly it’s the oil paint brush I used.

One annoying feature that took a while getting round was the inability to rotate the brush angle on some of the brushes. I found a way to avoid the repetition though by varying the size and type of brush.

This is the back lane where I live on a frosty mid morning a few days ago.
