I'm teaching folks how to paint 3 different backgrounds this week (May 18-20, 2021)!

Yesterday, we covered how to do snow and mountains! If you missed the stream, it's still available to watch for a while here: www.twitch.tv/videos/102851009…

This is the PSD file that I created during the stream! The layers are all retained but the size was a bit reduced (upload limits and all XD). It's free to use including any elements from the file or the entire image itself. I'd love to see what you create with it!

Remember, if you're entering my challenge this week you'll need to make a new drawing where the backgrounds SHINES! Make sure that when you submit it to DeviantArt, you use the tag #heynicebackground so I can find your work!

More in this series!
