ADADAM #1 by paperplait ADADAM #1 by paperplait
A new project of mine: ADADAM (A Drawing A Day A Month), so I'll basically draw something everyday for the next month.

Day 1:
I had the picture of a bridge in mind, especially the small hole that let's through light under the bridge.

here are some good tutorials, also covering backgrounds, but more speedpainting in general (I'm sorry I couldn't find anything specific to background painting)

but just general advice I would give is:
choose lighter and less saturated colors for the background. If you look around in real life, you will notice that the further you look, the more blue-ish and brighter it gets. (has to do with all the molecules in the air and stuff :D) If you apply that in your painting, it will certainly evoke the wanted depth.

so just go for it! :D

That contrast is something! - you're not afraid of it, and it looks good!

If these are to be expected every single day, I'm gonna have to sing up as a watcher.
