I thought it would be fun for today’s post to feature how I paint the Cover Art for my Oregon Trail series. My free prequel, Unavoidable, needs a cover so here we go!
First is a sketch. I have my misgivings already.
Next is getting together the paints I might need. The season is mid Spring, so there’s not a lot of green.
I’m not feeling the love for this…
Ok, this is a no-go. The trees are off, I don’t like the cabin. Just no. So I tore off the canvas and found…
This! An earlier reject that I can salvage.
I like it so much better! I’m not totally in love with this. It’ll either have to grow on me, or I’ll state a do over.
How bad do I think my reject is? This bad.
