I'm very happy with the outcomes of the master studies. I also learnt that there is no need to always be zoomed in and focus on tiny details - blocking out colour, then roughly refining is just as effective. I also feel these exercises help a lot when it comes to practicing scenery and environments for personal experience.
Abstract paintings - not focusing on actual buildings and structures, but allowing freedom to create never before seen shapes and forms.
More abstract paintings - this time mostly using the lasso, polygonal lasso and transform features. I am fond of the clean, sharp lines and layered grey tones.
This was a very fun exercise. Taking our two versions of abstract drawings, we combined a chosen few together and warped, deformed and manipulated the images : stacked, layered and, in this case I colourised the images (with the use of changing the layer's blending modes, e.g: overlay, soft light etc) which gave a very nice effect and colour.
