... a photograph taken at morning on a film camera somewhere in the American Midwest. The sun is present enough to light the sky, but still remains below the horizon leaving the land slightly underexposed and the trees nearly silhouetted ...
My journey continues to make the most compelling landscapes I can spring from a text editor. I spent a lot of time examining painted as well as traditional digital art landscapes, both of which are incredibly mature mediums. Paint, in particular, seems to be completely mastered - with some artist's work leaving nothing to be desired. What I have seen in digital has also blown me away. I want to work towards the bar set by these artists and marry their aesthetic prowess with the power, variety, and excitement of generative art.
// Technical Notes
-The render will take ~2-3 minutes.
-Default resolution is 3000x6000 px (including letterbox). While it's possible to render at any resolution, this is my intended resolution for the project - the product of an artistic choice to make the piece behave more like a photograph. This limited (but still high) resolution gives the features at the smallest scales some fuzziness, giving a sense that detail extends below the resolution of the piece. I think this imparts a more natural aesthetic as opposed to the perfect forms and edges of canvas shapes.
