You are an atmospheric genius. What type of tree is it though? We don't get that shape in Australia:-)What's a Wacon tablet?
Mysterious and lovely.
I do love your paintings! I do wonder what is the media, and what size is each one, aside from enjoying the view and form.
I use a cheep and cheerful Grapics Tablet and Pen.... and love the results I get from it... but unlike you I do not have the artistic skill to go with it... I'll just keep trying though.... By the way.... what drawing/painting programe do you use?
S'gorgeous. But then your paintings always are. Sometimes I just come here for a look at them. All the older ones. Again. x
There is something really pleasing about this picture. I could happily live with it.
Hello all. thanks for the blush makers. Waco Tablet is a tablet instead of a sheet of paper that transfers anything you do to it onto your screen electronically.I use it in conjunction with "Coral Classic Painter" That gives you also electronically a choice of brushes,pencils etc to make the painting with. it is however NOT proper painting as it is so easy to make changes and add effects unlike proper oil painting. Also the work remains inside the computer and cant be hung up!
Hi Tom,Like your site,going back there for a longer look.
Hi Rinkly Still amazed at these computer things that I can talk to somebody way over the other side of the world just like that! Here on the Wiltshire Plains trees tend to come in clumps and are very much a signature of the county.Wacom tablet I have explained elsewhere,that painting took about half an hour...very cheaty compared to the real thing.
"Just ten minutes ago"??? I've tried for years to create similar of the'South Downs' with acrylics and failed miserably . . . you drive me mad Ged. Stop showing off! Keep on keepin' on!
What do you mean, 'very cheaty compared to the real thing?' What is the real thing? If it is computer art, is that not the real thing? Or, is what we see a copy of the 'real thing', as in painting? Dummy question perhaps, with my foot still in the handmade art world!
hello Margaret.firstly I love your work and am still studying your site.bare with me,I'm not good with words,left school at 14 and wasn't paying much attention even then. by very cheaty I meant in a physical way,as you know in painting if you get a colour wrong it takes a lot of work to remove or over-paint it then you find the colour next to it looks wrong and the tone of the painting has changed not to ones liking etc etc. On the computer one can change all that with the simple flick of a switch,change all the colours to hot or cold likewise and also a simple control will up or down the brightness and contrast. Add to that the flattery of a luminous screen its easy to bring a scene up to scratch and all in a matter of minutes. That's what I mean by cheaty. A lot of the effect is actually the work of some programme writers in my case the ones who wrote Coral Classic Painter and devised the Wacom tablet.Hope this makes sense,its tired me out. :o)
Yes. It does. Thanks for the information. I left school at 14, too. I was an artist then, but, instead, was advised to go to a 2 yr. commercial college in Bournemouth. To think that we are both now utilizing, harnessed to, and managing a complex technology that was hardly anticipated after the war! I am beginning to find myself creating with it (as a blogger) as I go along, as you seem to be doing so attractively!
Perfect sky texture and the moon...the colors are brilliant.Good work.
