This is a painting that I did in a computer app called Rebelle. It is a watercolor app that looks just like real watercolors and acts just like real watercolors. It also has inks, acrylics, markers, pastels and pencils.
Artistically, I’ve been in a real funk for about eight or nine months. I’ve been quite ill all that time and I guess it just took my art abilities away from me. It’s been really frustrating and frightening and depressing.
However, I’m finally feeling better. Not all the way healthy, but better.
As a result, I’ve felt like painting again. And I’ve wanted to paint in this particular app because it makes these fabulous drips. Just like real life drips. It is mesmerizing to sit and put water on the acrylic paint and watch it flow.
So I’m calling this painting Breakthrough because I didn’t think I’d ever make a halfway decent painting ever again that I liked.
