Speed Painting: Spirited Away Still

I'm watching Spirited Away for the 20th time and in the beginning Chihiro is in the car driving to her new house. I saw this shot of them driving up the hill and I thought it might be a good idea to do a speed painting / color study of it! I paused the DVD and painted it in about half an hour :B

Speed Paintings: Landscapes

I don't know if I can really call these speed paintings ... I spent a decent amount of time on them >_o 

Basically I'm just trying to understand colors better by doing these. How light effects color, creating mood and atmosphere, creating space, etc etc. I like the desert one better :P

Speed Painting: May Sunset

Tonight's sunset was really cool and I made sure to paint it from memory as soon as I had the opportunity. This is basically what it looked like ... all of these dark blue clouds in front of these orange clouds off in the distance. It's one of the coolest Ohio sunsets I've ever seen.

I'm having some weird issues with my computer screen's calibrations as far as colors go so I hope that when it show up on your monitors it looks right :o
