So... one thing I felt I was successful with this time around, is that I didn't need to amplify my contrast in photoshop, I was able to get enough contrast during the process of the digital painting, though I did do a bit of a glow from the window over most of the image.

This is a painting I did today, looking straight outside my window from my computer here at work. Sooo... Yeah, I have a nice scenic little view. The trick is trying to capture all the right colors. Those of you who know me can understand why this is such a challenge.

This is a based off the old Norman Rockwell painting, most of the colors are directly from the painting. So not much creativity on that end, but I'm trying to replace the girl and guy with a friend of mine who just got married.

This painting is based off of a park that was close to my house growing up. It had a much larger patio that I modified to make it look a bit more quaint.
Planes, fly right by my window at work, all day long. So I thought I sketch out some planes today and then I worked on this little image.

Update. I found this picture of this kid in Veracruz that I liked, and wanted to add another layer of depth in the image. Then I adjusted some of the colors within the image. Better or worse?
This is a painting I did today of part of my last area in the mission I served for the LDS church. It brings back many fond memories. I'll look at this for a few days and figure out what I can improve on.

Update. (I put another hour or so into this, main on the face and rock in the foreground.
I just started this painting of my darling niece tonight. Although I'm not finished, I'm happy with the roughness in the background contrasting. Not sure how far I should take this piece. I think I'm going to lighten up the shadow side of her face under her nose. Any thoughts?
