Sometimes I don’t know if a drawing will work. This one seemed to. Used Artrage oils and Sketch apps. Not much more to say really… I had fun!
Bright colours greet
But darker tones calm
Muting strong memories
A face seen by me
Gave me joy.
Mixing and merging
A view of my mind….
Many digital processes, I won’t list them. I use the same apps, just over and over so that you get different effects each time you add a layer. I think it looks like a flurry of feathers after a pillow fight! Or even fireworks exploding. I used a blur tool to get the fuzzy effects.
We love you
When we see you
In the summer
Riding the breeze
On the flowers
In the sun
Blue and white digital drawing using the sketch app on my phone that has a kaleidoscope effect, then with added texture using photo director. Reminds me of a ceramic bowl with a repeat surface pattern using transfer printing. The pattern also looks like dancers or iceskaters. It would also look good on fabrics, like a silk scarf.
Series of digital finger paintings and photo edit to show how I created the eye drawing in my last post. I used artrage oils to start, then a flood fill in rainbow colours and a black pen and black flood fill in my sketch app. Finally added the texture with a style then grime option in Photodirector.
I was up late last night trying to get my college project finished. At about 2.30am I pressed the submit button and a PDF file was sent to the University. I previously sent in my written report in March. That was for 30% of the marks, this is for 70%. No more work due. Waiting for the results now.
What’s next? I’m hoping to get some more painting done and maybe get a few commissions for illustrations? I think I’ve proved I have an interesting style of working. Anyway I’ll find something. It’s got me through two whole years of Covid.
Another Sketchfu. I think that there would be a reference photo and artists at the site would try and copy them. These roses must have been put in dye so that it would be sucked up into their petals. I’ve also seen multicoloured roses and other flowers where the stems are split so different sections get a different colour.
Sketchfu drawing. An old website that closed. I’ve left it uncropped so you can see a bit of the technique I used. The drawing space was landscape orientated so portraits left a lot of space on either side. The site used simple tools but by changing opacity you could blend colours.
I’m trying hard to finish my final major project. Here’s a quick photo of one of my sets of pages. I can’t show too much detail as it’s a work in progress and you never know it might get published.
