Did You Really Say That

 

This is a painting that I started about two years ago.  It gave me nothing but grief.  I could see the eye in the main face just about in the center of the piece, but I could not get it to work.  I kept struggling with this piece, but nothing would work.  It just looked ugly.  I would go to other areas in the painting to work, and things just got worse.

Finally, I just gave up and put it away.  I have learned to never throw away or in my case of digital paintings, delete, a painting.  You just never know.

So about a month ago, I pulled this out.  Now this is where the joy of digital painting comes about.  I had the base of this painting.  I had started it in Rebelle, a watercolor app for the computer.  So, I was able to pretty much go back to that.  There were a couple of areas I wanted too preserve.  I kept those.  Then just like magic, the painting came together.

I haven’t had a painting go this easily ever!  It just flowed.  Which, given that it gave me such fits for so long, I guess I deserved this.

If you look around, you can find all kinds of other faces.  There’s a guy in the upper left spewing out all kinds of garbage.  We all know that kind of person, right?

I had a blast making this painting.  I hope you enjoy looking at it.

As I said, I started this painting in Rebelle, where I start pretty much all my paintings. Then I took it into Painter 2017 to finish it.  I used brushes I made.  I made the brushes from dynamic speckle types.  If you want more details about the brushes, or want the brushes, contact me.
