Digital

I’m still experimenting with using Photoshop and Illustrator to create digital abstract works. Finding that Photoshop works better for the more organic and fluid based artwork, whilst Illustrator is better for crisp lines and curves.

I’m hoping that I’ll be able to combine both apps into my creative workflow in the future. The learning curve is pretty steep, but it’s enjoyable.

Digital Art

Abstract, Store

I decided that I would try my hand at doing some digital art today, whilst I wait for the paint to dry on a new canvas. It’s a different way of thinking, that’s for sure.

 

I’ve been working on it for a few days, and I was surprised that it took me almost the same, if not more, time to complete it. I kind of liked the freedom I had to delete, or undo, things if I wasn’t happy with them.

Artworks for sale

Store

I’ve decided to set up shop!

Not exactly a storefront that you can physically visit, but rather a digital storefront. Some of you have asked if you can buy my artwork (thank you to those of you who have offered to so this) so this is my solution to this.

You’re not buying an original piece however, these are prints. Actually, depending on what you fancy, it could be an article of clothing or a case for your cell phone.

The Circle

Abstract

I painted this on a Sunday afternoon, not really knowing what I wanted to do. I was struggling with the original image of a boat at sea, so decided to abandon it.

This was not a pleasant experience for me, as cutting the circle out paused my creativity.

However, I did make a video of me creating this piece, and I hope to do more in the future.

Art

Words

This whole painting thing is new to me. I’ve only been doing it for about six months. My first piece was literally three blobs of acrylic paint and a swoosh on a tiny canvas.

To say that I didn’t know what the hell I was doing is an understatement. At the time, I believe I was scared of the canvas and the paint. I didn’t know what they could do together.

Christmas

Abstract

I started this painting on April 22, 2019, and finished it on the following day. It was originally called Christmas, hence the title of this post, but has since been renamed to Mint.

It’s an acrylic on canvas painting. The stripes were created by placing masking tape on the painting once the base layer was dry, then painting over it with different colours.
