Manchester in Winter by ChaosAcathla Manchester in Winter by ChaosAcathla
Having a go at a landscape. Its hard work, very different to portraiture.

This is a view of Manchester I see every morning as I walk to work. I referenced a photo I took on my phone one morning last winter, I liked the steam and soft but colourful sky.

Comments are very welcome as always!

This was painted using a photo I took in the same location but facing the direct opposite direction a year later:

Only coming across this now and my god! This is amazing! I love to visit Manchester alot (due to it being a 10minutes train ride) 
and this reminded me that I've never been there during winter!


Thanks for the upload!

Thank you very much, glad to come across a local here on dA. I hope you get to see it in winter this year, I hoping for a better dollop of snow this year! ^^

Thanks my dear! I have to say i'm pretty fond of Manchester as far as cities go!

I'm glad you like it, turns out straight lines are really hard to work with! I felt I was getting nowhere so many times but I had to keep at it!

Looks a cool place indeed, my dear :D
can't you use the selector tool to make straight lines?...I know it's digital painting....but still...it's no different to using a rule to lean on in traditional painting?

Yeah I used that a bit but if I used it too much it didn't look very natural, just a difficult balance I guess!
