Last nights journal page, done in my usual ball point pen...
Tonight I scanned the sketch into my Photoshop Elements program so as to paint, and embellish her to my heARTs content. Digital art is late night meditation for me. I lose myself, and find myself , while creating............without the mess!!!!
Canvas, paper, pencils, paint, beads, sequins, lace, fabric and thread..........oh and my prerequisite, very strong, very sweet, hot espresso coffee, first thing in the morning as I sip in contentment. Yes, voyaging through life in a magical caravan, my destiny. Somewhere different, new and exciting....everyday!!! Utopia!!!
Who could ask for more. OK.......so maybe an extremely large supply of chocolate. A girl needs to eat.
This face is a quick daily journal sketch (which is how I express and document the emotions, thoughts and consciousness of my day ) scanned, then layered onto a poignant photo of a stranded Polar bear found on Flickr. I then applied brushes, filters, textures and text so as to tell my vision.
I've had a few days completely to myself and I refuse to stop playing!!! This one I did entirely on Photoshop using pencil brushes to sketch the eye (using my mouse) Wacom tablet I want you!!! Then I used lots of other brushes for painting, textures, tons of layers, filters etc.
Midnight journal page, "talking with my muse". The face, I sketched and painted by hand, then scanned and digitally enhanced in Photoshop. The background into which I "opened" a niche/ window is from Shadowhouse Creations. The gorgeous flowers.... a still life photo I found somewhere on Flickr.
