Sort of borrowed one of the kitchen cabinets as a still life ‘stage’.
Got a Wacom intuos pressure sensitive stylus for Christmas…yeehaw pretty cool with ArtRage!
The kitchen was warm and food was being made, so I made the smart choice and did a still life…
Nice sunset–about 4pm… Getting close to the solstice, the real reason for holiday celebration as far as I’m concerned.
A paint version of the ‘cloud atlas’ sketch posted earlier. I’m usually a filbert kind of guy, but a hog bristle round felt better for some reason. I usually just use one or two brushes and straight paint, no thinner chaser, no, not even for brush cleaning. In case you were interested.
Supposedly Sargent would just go outside and set up his easel more or less randomly, as he was so good he could make a painting out of anything he happened to look at. The warm chair I’m sitting in happens to face this scene, but unfortunately I’m not Sargent.
So I submitted ‘Lolo Creek Complex’ to the Missoula Art Museum fundraising auction and it snuck in, which meant getting a print made and so on. Anyway, I got the full sized Mac version of Artrage so I could play back my scripts (a record of your paint strokes made in Artrage on the ipad). One thing is that the file can be made very large–big prints are possible. Another is making a fun little video out of it, sticking some music on, and putting it on Vimeo. Thanks to Sarah the film wiz for the help!
