When I used to draw at Youdraw.com I would do one line drawings. Basically you kept your cursor moving on the drawing area and didn’t lift it until you finished… Thats what I’ve done here … But then duplicated it and flood filled it. Sometimes it’s nice to lose black lines.
I’m having a makeover on social media. I’m now @mallabandbrown on twitter… I will be using it more to post about paintings and other exploratory art that I’m planning over the next few months .
My friend Tim sent me this photo, I think it’s in the Yorkshire sculpture park. I could not resist turning it into a symmetrical pattern. I use an app called layout that allows you to turn and flip photos. I tried the picture in various orientations but this was my favourite and I felt it was the best looking.
I just feel so in contact with the Earth and summer when I see a landscape like this. The umbelliforous flowers in the foreground remind me of the bubbles in a champagne glass. The sculpture is not the focus of the photo, it seems almost to merge into the back ground trees.
I hope Tim forgives me for using his image.
Green men tangled in a big green square,
I just wrote a really bad poem about Green men but I decided to delete it and not inflict it on you!
These were drawn in ArtRage oils, a free app from samsung galaxy. They were duplicated in an app called layout. The colours were enhanced using Instagram filters.
I like the way the digital brushes give it a more 3d impression. You can use ArtRage with 4 brush styles and metallic or non metallic paint. There is also a slider to change the size of the brush head.
Layout allows you to choose up to 9 pictures that can be moved or flipped to make new patterns. As you work your way through editing the pictures you end on a page that takes your drawing into Instagram, here you can edit the picture further. Eventually you end up with whatever image you want modified to suit your requirements.
