Becoming Intimate with Color
Like young lovers caught up in the rejuvenating embrace of Spring, digital coloring and I have been exploring one another. Curiosity, hesitation. Trepidation and experimentation.
Haha, such foolish children were we.
So I don't have much experience painting digitally but I have posted here my early attempts. There's much I don't like but in the interests of being thorough (albeit very exposed) I have posted some work here, from Illustration class and Media Exploration class, Year Two at ACAD.
The top pic is my fave piece of coloring so far. I showed some restraint in my color choices and it really paid off. It features some of what you may expect at a ME THREE show.
This is one of my first pieces, and I pretty much hate it all, but it was a good chance to work on my idea for Reactionary, my work in progress for the last decade or so. The bird masks were a very important addition to the design and the story.
With most of these pieces, there are tiny little inch by inch squares that I adore, happy little accidents that I hope to replicate en masse in future works. But for now, I'll be happy with my tiny square of competence.
I have loads of real media paintings (water color and acrylic) so I'll be posting those soon as well, warts and scars and all.
