Painting Idea


In PhotoShop, I combined an old watercolor landscape I found in my portfolio with a simple figure photo from a book. I think this might be an interesting way to explore painting compositions without getting my fingers dirty,

You should get a Wacom tablet and a copy of Painter if you don't have it already. You would absolutely love it. You could work out your compositions without ever touching a brush. I got one a year ago and it really got me back into art. I went to the Apache Cafe tonight for "art Mondays" where they have live models for a $5 donation. I didn't realize how spoiled I had become by painting digitally but figure drawing was hard as hell. I haven't done anything like that in 10 years.


Pssssssst! Sweetheart! I'm over here!!!!!


Works pretty good I'd say. Definitely usable, though there is a limit to how much digital art one can look at without getting homesick for some of the real and gritty stuff.
