Before beginning these sketches, I spent a while looking at the foliage. I decided to use a combination of a mix of soft pastels and the Faber Castell Pitt brush pens to do my pencil drawings. Because the oaks had quite a few branches coming up from the ground, I decided to use a few heavier textures to keep things somewhat grounded in reality. I also wanted to try out some different and more airy strokes using the brush pens.I was satisfied with the results and decided to block in the figure using my brush pens and soft pastels. I applied the paint in many thin, constantly erasing layers, figuring I would have to re-apply thick paint and that I'd just have to scrap the whole thing if I didn't like the results. When I was about 3/4ths of the way done, I picked up a brush pen and started erasing some of the paint from the palm. I was surprised to find that the palm had turned out much better than I'd expected. I then decided to go in and re-apply some of the paint from the palm, and some of the eraser re-dirt from the ground. I liked the new look, so I decided to keep going.
I then stopped working on the figure and began adding some trees along the left side of the painting and in the distance. I decided to set the model and paint the trees, which I had sketched on a separate sheet of paper and then glued onto a large, blank canvas. Once I was happy with the trees, I set the model and started painting in the foreground with the brush pens. The grass around the oaks was the most difficult part of the painting, because it was such a great contrast between the soft green grass and the mottled, rough texture of the live oak leaves. I knew that was going to be a challenge, but after spending a couple of hours applying small splashes and patches of paint, I was satisfied with my results. I didn't set the model up for the grass because I didn't want to distract the viewer from the oaks and the palm tree. I was also determined not to spend too much time on the grass because I wanted the oaks to be more important in the painting.To finish off the painting, I added some additional grass and gravel using the brush pens.
I am running a PC with Windows 7 and Adobe Photoshop CS6. I am wondering how to end the trial period and convert to a full copy of Photoshop CS6. I tried closing down Photoshop, which produced a message telling me to return the disk. I did that, but the same message returned. How can I end this?
