Thought I'd share some pics from my latest obession - digital art or as my friend Chrysti Hydeck likes to call it, 'artography' in the CPS article featuring her work. I was also inspired by another artist friend Susan Tuttle. There's a chapter on digital art in her book, Exhibition 36 where she explains how to design your own brushes. I met both of these lovely souls at ConvenZioNE in California last year (incidentally the photo is from a local vineyard that I visited there) and I do believe it was for a reason. Both of them have influenced the direction of my work in some way since I returned.
This is the final piece, I was going for a surreal, dramatic look. I tweaked it a bit more and added another layer of texture:
"Moody" digital fine art, prints available here
Here are two of the original photos I used:
Anyhow, I've been playing around with layers & actions, designing my own brushes and just plain having FUN. Plus I love the ease of working in this medium - no mess to clean up, anything you don't like is gone with a 'click' and you can work at it whenever you want without the need for daylight (which I tend to favor for traditional painting & illustration work)
I know I've just scratched the surface of this medium, so to speak but I'm looking forward to all the directions I can go with it.
I hope I've inspired you to give it a try!!Have a great week!
thank you for 10 years!!
