Sometimes you start the day with a good idea of how you want to progress with a painting and in no time things go horrible, horribly wrong! So much for Sitka Islands. Not sure if I'll restart this or just go on to a new subject. Oh well, paint over the damage with gesso and move on.
Over the last several weeks I've been somewhat creatively challenged with little time being spent on painting. So in order to not to feel too bad about that I decided to do some spring cleaning & reorganization. I'll soon be adding another worktable to the studio that will be next to the much needed white storage shelving unit for my stuff. The opposite wall from the one shown will have an adjustable rail for painting. We'll see how well the painting rail works compared to a traditional easel.
Just started on my next painting. The photo below was taken during an Alaska cruise that my wife & I took in 2005. The subject is a group of small islands leading into Sitka. The photo at right shows initial block-in of color areas.
I've decided to add digital artwork to my gallery. The art that I've done was created on a Ipad2 with various graphics apps. Initially I had reservations about including digital work along with the acrylics I've created. The question being - is digital art fine art? I've decided it most assuredly is.
This was a digital work that I created not long after I received my Ipad 2. I invested in Autodesk's Sketchbook Pro app which provided some nice tools for creating digital images. I thought I did fairly well working with a new medium and app.
