This is my second go at this painting using my painter program. I started with a tracing of my photo I took last week in my garden. Then I created a background layer using a sponge and the colours in the background of the photo. Now on another layer I am painting in the colours using an oil paint brush setting. So far this has taken me about 3 hours. The rest I hope to finish over the weekend.
Today I have all 12 pieces ready to deliver to The Stationmaster's Art Gallery in Strathalbyn SA for the Still Waters Exhibition on Sunday. I had to pick up four framed drawings from the framers this morning and I have just finished the paperwork and labeling. Now all that is left to do is update my bio and do an artist statement. I don't know about the rest of you but this writing part is much harder than the creating part.
Anyway just a reminder for anyone that is interested. I have work in at the Victor Harbor Art Show which starts today and finishes next Friday and from this coming Wednesday until the 1st March you can see a lot more of my work in the Still Waters Exhibition as in this one I am the feature artist. In this I have 2 oil paintings, 4 drawings and I will be introducing 6 digital art pieces. The Launch is Next Friday the 23rd Jan. at 6pm till 8pm.
Here are some of my pictures taken today to promote my Still Waters works. It is where I will be introducing my latest digital work.
These are three of my latest works.
1: Kleur (meaning colour in dutch) is based on Zaandam, which is a city in the Netherlands, in the province of North Holland.
2: Little Clown Lost, I did for the colours and the 3D effect.
3: Pelican In The Mist was done to be a nice calming influence.
Hi all, this is what I have been doing staying out of the heat. With the two days of temperatures being around 43c I sure am not going outside any time soon. What better way is there than playing with your favourite painting programmes. I am also busy learning the adobe illustrator programme not to mention all the art apps on my ipad.
This one I did on the iPad using art rage. I love the textures and the metallic look of this one.
