Here's another quick Saturday morning painting sketch. This one's based on a photo I took from a helicopter somewhere over New Zealand. Most of you know that I worked as an Art Director on the Lord of the Rings. But I also had the great fortune of being in charge of the Scenic Photography Unit. We did most of our work from a helicopter. Actually, two helicopters (but who's counting?) By far the coolest gig I've ever had! Needless to say, I shot a lot of pictures (sadly, before I got a digital camera.)
Outstanding. Love the minimalistic brushstrokes. The thumbnail looks like a photograph because of the perfect color choices. Awesome.
I love your work..the way you use directional strokes really defines the environment clearly. What an incredible view...you pretty much have the coolest job ever!
I have great admiration for your work.
Sketches are always the best !
Thanks for sharing, its so instructive!
One question: you use mac or pc? wich model? (as a designer, i use only wacom, and i'm thinking about an iMac...)
Thanks, and keep on posting such great things
What a cool story and of course fantastic sketch!
That does sound like a cool job!
Very inspirational work!

Beautiful, Paul...but I thought surf's up was your coolest gig?!
