The digital protea

Putting the brushes away for a while and trying some digital art.  It’s still art, and just as much work, or effort, to finish. : )

The nice part of digital art, is that you can create one picture and then with a bit of ‘cutting and ‘pasting’ create many more with very little effort.

Even a bunch or flowers, just like that…

Wooden shed

Everywhere in Switzerland you see these wooden sheds. They are old and skew, which is so different to everything else that are neat and clean. I could see how they could be the subject for pencil sketches. With lots of detail. As we drove around I took photographs from the car and came back with a lot of blurred photographs… but a few came out ok.

I’m still trying out pastels. I just keep on drawing really small pictures that does not work with pastel sticks at all. I’ve bought a few more pastel crayons, but my colour range is still limited. … definitely need to buy large pastel paper. : )
