Mountain Speed Paint

Downloaded some new brilliant new brushes from cghub, and decided to test them out with some quick speedpaints to test them out. One brush in particular, a "triangle brush," was particularly good at creating texture and allowed me to create mountain landscapes a lot easier, due to the expressive, quick technique.

This piece is the first speed-paint I created, which took roughly half an hour. I started off painting the piece in black and white then colouring it in with a different layer, set at "Overlay," which created a nice rich, textured look to the piece. Well, I certainly plan to do a lot more of these speed paints ... practice makes perfect ... as the saying goes.
