In the past, I’ve created many digital paintings using Corel Painter software and various electronic pen and pad tools. Most of the paintings in this gallery were created from my imagination. Some were inspired by artist Matisse, Modigliani, Renoir and Van Gogh. I have taught several artist-inspired classes when I taught at the Digital Art Academy.
The rose paintings continue. For awhile now, I haven’t had to wonder what I was going to paint! For the past several weeks, it’s just been roses.
Above, abundant energy and foliage, and for me, unusual colors in this painting.
Above: It’s playful and energetic, So long as I’m moving my hands, I’m growing in skill and confidence in my brushstrokes.
Above: I love the feeling of the thick paint and texture in this painting which give it so much dimension. It jumps off the background.
I think you can see my issue. My painting styles are quite diverse. It would be hard to recognize them as coming from the same person. I would have to say that the painting style immediately above comes with the greatest ease and most likely would be found to be the least desirable! That’s the way it goes. I will not abandon this hand I’ve been given.
