Is there such a thing as having too much fun with my art?

Digital Painting with Procreate

Thursday, January 3, 2019


As you can probably tell, I got a little irritated over the fact that I couldn’t just go into a digital program and quickly whip up a New Year’s greeting for everyone at the last minute. So, I decided that I would have to try to remedy that. I also had a small project that I wanted to work on. Someone’s anniversary was coming up. As you can see below, I have just been playing with the digital program - Procreate. Have to say, I really like it.

I lost my favorite digital app when my old tablet died. I am trying to learn Procreate, but in the meantime had to throw together a quick digital drawing in the 3D program. I didn’t bother to sign this - don’t think it will be a museum piece!

At any rate, Happy New Year to everyone!

New Samples and Landscapes

I decided to drop in on a Golden Acrylic demo that was being done here locally. I didn’t know if it would be pretty much the same as the one I had seen before or not, but repetition is not always a bad thing, and I love color. One thing you can definitely achieve with acrylics is lots of fun color. They gave us some samples for dropping by, and I decided to experiment with them.

First, I tried an ocean scene from photos I had taken when in the San Diego area. I used watercolor paper, Golden Polymer (medium gloss) Golden fluid acrylics, F&W acrylic inks, a very small amount of Liquitex (soft body), a very small amount of Liquitex string gel, and some Golden Soft Gel Gloss.

Next, I decided to simply build a scene using pretty much the same above mentioned supplies along with some Japanese paper. I placed this on a small canvas board (8” x 8”).

Happy 4th of July!

My apologies for the fact that the iridescence doesn't show up in the scan. At any rate, Happy 4th of July

Sometimes You Just Have to Play - Playing With Paint 3D

While playing with the 2D portion of Paint 3D has been fun, I decided I wanted to try my hand at the 3D portion. There are still a lot of things that I need to figure out on this, but it has been fun.
