Environment art blog #43 - Berlin History, Generic Landscape Tips and Patryk Olkiewicz.

Evening people!
Another busy week and a packed weekend, didn't have any time to do any personal work and went exploring Berlin and learning more about the Berlin wall and it's history instead! It was super interesting and learned a lot about the ramp up towards the wall and what situations the initial stages of the wall and it's construction caused, so super interesting stuff! 

During our small visit I learned so much, and I got even more interested in the history of the Berlin wall and all the effects of it.
Which is also why I bought a nice book for my commute! :D

A comparison of the actual location we visited, comparing the demolition of the church which was in the middle of the strip to the site of the museum and how it is now.



But after the weekend I started to feel a little sick, so instead of working in the evenings I took some time off and only focused on this week's blog post and the tips contained below.

So this makes this week's blog post a really short one with no WIP section :D
(which makes me so excited about this weekend!)

I have always been a really big fan of these amazing cityscapes and this one by Patryk Olkiewicz is no different. I like the hue variations in the far distant cloud formations indicating a nice sunset, also something nice which is not pushed to the forefront, are all the different cars floating in the foreground that add the human element and give the viewer something to relate to for scale reference.

Thanks so much for inspiring me Patryk! I really want to do these myself at some point as well


Alright people!

That's going to do it for me for this week, I'll catch you in the next one!
