Lago di Livigno, study. by ElsaKroese Lago di Livigno, study. by ElsaKroese
This started out as a quick landscape study, but I started enjoying it and I felt like rendering it a bit further. Lots of happy trees :D.
Painted with my "standard" study rules: No color picking, limited layers and only two or three simple brushes (soft, standard ps chalk brush and hard round)
I'm quite happy with how it turned out.

Ahhh, so beautiful! It looks really peaceful, and I love how the mirror-smoothness of the water really comes out.

Beautiful, although you missed that little tree stump out in the water (Or the lockness monsters fin) where the early fog was rolling off it..

Haha, true. There's someone in a canoe on the lake in the picture, but I left him out on purpose XD. I thought it was distracting.

Indeed... so it was a guy in a canoe? I couldn't figure out what it was. I just noticed it was missing. XP

I did truly got Bob Ross vibes all the time when painting this XD. I could hear his voice in the back of my head, "Tree's don't all grow straight. They grow how ever makes 'em happy" XD
