Purple satin…?

Filtered photo, changed a photo of water and soapsuds by altering the colour of it. Then adding texture. In the end it either looks like crumpled satin or even red cabbage! Or it could be red wine, or a pool deep in the woods as autumn sets in.

You can describe anything by looking at it and deciding what it something you of, imagination is something you can cultivate. If you look closely you might see an eye or the profile of an imp with its mouth open? Bottom left/middle… Or a gorilla or a cat stretching…

Dotty

Paint dots abstract on a tiny canvas. I used little glittery paint tubs with nozzles to build this up on a tiny canvas . It is not meant to signify anything. Instead it’s just an experiment. I wanted to see how much the paint would shrink as it dried. The paint is acrylic with added glitter/sparkles or a metallic effect. I don’t have a title for it.

old digital work

a long time ago (2019) , I was playing with photoshop and came up with a series of images. I would start with one digital drawing, put it through a filter or two until I was happy with the result, save it and then filter it again. I have several series of jpegs where I have changed the images incrementally, up to 9 or 10 times. Its a way of learning how you can alter or edit an image without loosing the sequence. I dont tend to do it anymore unless someone wants to see how Ive worked something out. I do have too many images, but I do like to look back at them occassionally, it helps me understand how I got here.

Unconscious

Warning, I’ve made myself look very strange.

Sundays #bandofsketchers prompt was Unconscious. I have been unconscious a few times in my life and thankfully remember nothing about it. I decided to take a selfie with my eyes closed and hair dishevelled. The drawing is trying out the new style I’m playing with… Nose is too long because I had the sketchbook horizontal so it’s all elongated

Bottle experiment

When the milk bottles on my kitchen counter started to multiply I asked hubby to put them out for the milkman. He didn’t, so I asked again tonight (our house is directly on the street so if we put them out on a non delivery night they get knocked or kicked over). This time he did it, but not before I took this photo from above and processed it through the photodirector app on my phone. I think it makes an interesting picture. Daily chores can be fun!

Experiment

When you’ve got a painting partly done it’s interesting to use a photograph app to play with it and see if there are things you can do to change it. Having done this I don’t think I will take it in this direction, but I may change things a bit. I need to have calm areas as well as jazzy patterns, otherwise I think it will be too much just an all over pattern.
