My digital doodling becomes a piece of art called "Spirit Dream".
I only used two images to create this, one of a vintage Florida sign and the side of a painted building:
The rest of the elements in the image came from doodling with Photoshop brushes.
This past weekend, Lita and I were together for one of our Creative Saturdays. This time is was a Digital Art day at her house. I brought her some fresh cut Bird of Paradise from my garden:
I can't display them in my house because they are poisonous to cats and it seems a shame to not let their beauty grace an interior so Lita is the lucky recipient!
Lita had chosen a photo of a sailboat to turn into a digital watercolor. It turned out great but I'm still waiting on her to blog about it (Lita...get busy blogging girl!) and when she does I will post a link to it.
I had chosen to work on dividing a tree into all four seasons. I wasn't fully aware when I started just how much work would be involved. As with my previous digital painting of the Phoenix, I'm still working on it.
Here is a little taste of the Autumn section of the tree:
I had to create the leaves brush from scratch and using different sizes, add leaves all over the bare tree. I used about five different tones ranging from dark reddish-brown to light orange to give it contrast and depth.
No free time to continue to work on it this week, but next week I hope to get the Summer section of the tree done which will mean even more leaves in thick, dark rich tones of green!
Until then, try some digital doodling...you just might end up with a work of art!
