I'm a software engineer by trade. I've been a hobbyist in art my whole life. I've recently just kicked my art up into high gear, trying to improve and get the art out of me that I've always wanted to create.

I know it can be better, but it feels like I'm making some progress.
How to paint an Impressionistic Landscape by jjpeabody
How to paint an Impressionistic Landscape
I've been experimenting with digitally painting in an impressionistic style.  I've created a few brushes in Photoshop CS6 that helps with this. Of course it's not just the brushes, but you also have to understand color and how to make things pop.  This can be achieved by putting contrasting and complimentary colors next to each other.

I've also created a short 30 minute video (with no dialog) so you can watch how I paint (the video is still cooking the last time I checked).  I'm not sure if it's beneficial or not, but sometimes it's beneficial to just watch someone paint.

I'm including the Tools that I used in this image.  If you don't know how to use tools, you should look it up.  I use my "Tool Presets" almost exclusively now because it saves time so I don't have to adjust brush settings each time.  These brushes have been adjusted to my style.  You might have to adjust them to your style.  Also note that your stylist sensitivity can effect the result of the brush.  I have mine turned way up to hardest. 

Anyway, here's the brushes you can download.  If you don't know how to add them to your Tool Presets, you'll have to look them up:

It feels like my art has gone to the next level.  It feels really good now when I start sketching.  People and buildings are getting a little easier for me, landscapes still rock so I thought I'd just take a minute to highlight how I got to this point.

Practice, lots and lots of it. I know that sounds a little cliche and it probably is a bit, but honestly, that's all I've been doing is practicing.  I digital paint nearly every day.  Sometimes I just sketch black and whites all day long just pulling what I see out of the chaos.  Besides the practice, I would have to say that commissions also helped me get to this point.  Sometimes I get commissioned to do things that I'm not really comfortable with so it makes me buckle down and try harder.  While I hate doing things I'm not really not proficient at doing, it forces me to adapt and overcome.

So I guess the lesson is, practice doing things you love, but also go outside of your comfort zone and do art that you normally wouldn't do.  These two things will help your art improve and move it to the next level.

So go level up!
