This is the first of many pieces I want to create for my concept art portfolio. I decided that I have very little (none, really) in the way of environment concept art. This took about 10 hours to do, but I want to get to the point where I can knock out something like this in less than 5. I am determined to get better at doing landscapes and environments, which I would argue is definitely my weak point. I’ll be doing a lot more plein air painting and outdoor sketching. Hard to do in February in Iowa, though. I need a change of scenery big-time.
