Post Canvas and Paint: Variations | Light and Dark

Well for the last several months, all of the art I’ve been posting has been created using a Samsung phone and the PicsArt app. In some instances, I combined older digital work, with newly created pieces. It was a challenge to work in such a small environment. But I must say, it did feel like I was walking around with a sophisticated notepad and colored pencils. Now I am happy to say that I am now sitting in front of my new Windows 8 desktop. Big screen. More processing power. And although I am now using the pre-installed Adobe Photo Elements instead of my more familiar Corel Photo Paint Pro, I am happy to have considerably more freedom to create art and the capability to write with more depth and length. I have always used Corel over Adobe, so this will be a learning curve. Here is my first entry using the Adobe software. I will be experimenting and posting the results.

    • Thanks Terry. I just returned from a Mark Rothko exhibit of his work in the 40’s at the Columbia Museum of Art in SC. Great show. It has inspired my look forward into the abstract. I may started painting again. 🙂

  3. I use a mix of photoshop 7, an version of corel paint hop pro and Elements because they all have features I like, or perhaps its that I can’t do any of them very well but have worked out different things on each!

    • That is usually how software works. Some are better at one thing, while others provide tools to meet different needs. Thanks for stopping by Gilly.
