Vision

Today’s challenge on 64 million artists January challenge was to choose the sense that is most important to you.

To me my sight is the most important sense, the ability to discern colours and use them in interesting ways…..

These are a couple of digital art drawings I did on ArtRage oils and Layout a year ago. I played with colours and textures.

Tree and faces

Untitled76_001IMG_20200120_185123I decided to draw a tree with a pinkish sunset in the background. I used the ArtRage oils app.then I decided to see what it would look like if I duplicated and mirrored it. Now I can see a 🙀 cat! And various other patterns…. I’m one of those people who see faces in anything. I think I heard people saying that you can be employed to look for faces in patterns so they can alter designs and remove them. I could do that job! Art and Design seems full of them…. X

Sunset sketch

Untitled74_001

I wanted to do a colourful sketch of the sunset which was all oranges and purples. I can’t get it exactly right as it is drawn in ArtRage oils, basically it’s a finger painting. I got the idea from a photo by a friend on a Facebook page, but as it’s just an impression there is no point in sharing the photo as this is much more impressionistic than the original.

Digital sketch. What is she thinking? Who has she left behind. She had thought about staying in the world of men but had seen wisdom and realised that it could not work.

It’s funny how things appear in your mind and what you end up doodling. I was playing with an idea of someone looking back over their shoulder after seeing an image on the TV.

Various problems  with this but it’s nice enough.

Drawing digitally.

Untitled67_001.jpg

I haven’t done much digital drawing lately. This was done in the free ArtRage app. I was just messing around with complementary colours, in this case red and green. I might lay around with hues and tones in a later iteration of this. It’s only a finger painting really, using metallic and non metallic digital paints.

I should try and copy a photo or use the other ArtRage app I have which is the pro version. I also could play with photoshop. I will think about it when things quieten down a bit.

When I drew this image in ArtRage oils, the free app, and then Layout to duplicate it, I didn’t really know how they worked. And yet I’m pleased with the results.  I guess sometimes simpler things look better. My hubby reckons I overwork things, but I just think I want them to look finished, I am not exactly a perfectionist, but I know when somethings done…anyway I hope you like these….

Goodnight x
