Finally, a new "Star Wars meets Bierstadt" remix is finished!
This was a tough one because the source image had entirely different colors and I decided to go with an autumn mood that also goes well with the abandoned starship.

To follow along the recent AT-ST painting from this series, there is some composition knowledge that I will share along this piece in the bottom set of images. Since this is still an educational project for me, the compositional exploration is some of the most interesting aspects to me.

If you want to learn more about these composition secrets, there are 2 Ebooks about composition available on Gumroad: https://gumroad.com/l/KhAb and this one https://gumroad.com/l/kWxSl

Besides that learning aspect, there is still the mission statement coming through in this series: "Nature will always win" ;)
