Moulin Rouge AKA done is better than perfect

moulin-rouge-final

Painting on the iPad is somewhat addictive. This is my first try to create anything more intricate than a sketch on Procreate. I’ve been working on this piece for a month. It’s a learning curve trying to paint in Procreate (I normally use plain ol’ Photoshop), and in the process of learning I’ve slowly become addicted, I kept experimenting, cleaning up and adding up, and as a result, the work is never done.

At one point I said, that’s enough. Time to move on to other paintings and explore different styles. Let’s save this as JPEG and upload it, like, now! Today! So here it is!

PS: The Moulin Rouge building is photo referenced ’cause I’ve never been to Paris. I plan to, someday.

Here’s some color theory illustration for you. I can’t believe it took me forever to do this! I spent one week experimenting how to color with this new fake-watercolor style, but at the end I was quite pleased with the result.

I also like how it gradually turns from calm on “analogous” to chaotic colors on “tetradic”.

Here’s all of them in one picture. Click to see all the pretty textures in full resolution. Cheers!
