Isn’t it fun when something new comes together in your art? It’s like all of the preparation and experimentation and play lead you to this place where everything just clicks. There is a moment of “a-ha!” and you discover that you have a new process. That happened for me this week!
I think I discovered it on Saturday, when I created this digital painting:
I loved it. Absolutely loved it. And so I tried something similar with the next one:
And, oh my goodness, if I didn’t love that one too! And then I realized that I had discovered a new process. A certain type of photo, a certain sequence of editing, and I could get these gorgeous tree paintings. I’ve been experimenting all week and starting to learn what does and doesn’t work for the aesthetic I want. I’m playing within this process with variations.
I just can’t get enough! I find that after my dark, moody binge a couple of weeks ago I just want this color. And texture. And light. It feels like freedom.
Happy Paint Party Friday!!
I normally don’t post twice in one day but things got away from me with getting new eCourses ready for registration this week! Here’s what’s going on…
- Fuel Your Creativity, a one-week eCourse to kick off the new year with a creative burst, is open for registration. This is not a photography course. Everyone is invited!
- An all-new eCourse in the Find Your Eye series, Journey of Fascination, is open for registration too. This series will run January/February.
- December’s Exploring with a Camera will post tomorrow! Visit Friday and see what we’ll be studying this month.
Whew. I think that’s all for now…
