Hazy Afternoon by arisuonpaa Hazy Afternoon by arisuonpaa
I've always wanted to try my hands on a classic countryside painting. This painting shows what a Finnish farm might have looked like in 18th century.

Painted digitally in Corel Painter, ArtRage, and Photoshop.

They all support .psd so it's easy to switch between the apps.

Corel Painter for the initial sketch and colors, ArtRage for painting over the low resolution sketch, and Photoshop for color adjustments and unsharp mask filter at the end of the painting process.

I see, now I understand *nods*
Myself and Corel Painter were never really good friends. I either go traditional -> scan -> photoshop, or SAI->photoshop or only photoshop (favorite option, no hassle of moving the files around:) ).

This is- so amazing! This painting captures farm life perfectly and the coloring and the lighting is incredible

The really cool thing about this is, I remember you as the person who gave me my first llama on this site, and I will be forever grateful for the smile that you gave me ^ ^ It was so overwhelming knowing that you actually visited my page and knew I existed. So, thank you. And congratulations on the Daily deviation!

I've never lived in the countryside, nor in the 18th century (of course), but when I look at this picture, I feel homesick... really. It is so well done, I can almost feel the clear air and hear the little afternoon birds singing around. Thank you very much for sharing such beauty...

...Finland should be a beautiful place, as I see from this picture...

There is something distinctively Finnish about the picture. Romantic nationalism at its best. I think Gallen-Kallela would have approved :)

The cool shadow of the hut looks very inviting on a hot day.

I've always liked farms for some reason. This painting sums it all up in 1 picture, which is an amazement on its own. I personally love this, I heart the cabin peeking in the corner and the river, the painting takes me back to the good old countryside!

Amazing as always! This is something I would love to hang in my kitchen. All your artworks have magic in them that when I look at it, I feel something that's hard to explain in words. Its very calming and nostalgic.

This is very beautiful. I adore how you were able to capture atmospheric depth with the concept of fog. The purple and gold color palette is very appealing to me, as are all the flowers that line the roadside and they fill the picture with the concept of life more then the cows lazing about do.
