This artwork is the painter’s equivalent of a writer’s mind dump. You get all these thoughts swirling in your head and have an almost physical need to get them out on paper, or in this case-computer screen, since i made the art using my favorite toy. My Wacom Intuos4 Graphics tablet and stylus. Oh man! How did i ever live without them?! No messy paint tubes and no brush cleanup….especially nice when your urge for a mind-dump comes in the wee small hours and you’ve got a 2 month old baby sleeping beside you! SO awesome to be able to get my vision onto the screen without even changing my seat!
i kept seeing this filmy colorful background….sort of like when latex balloons in bright colors overlap each other with the sunshine behind them? Bright, vivid and transparent….
The sketches had to be white. No other option. The sketchy, messy style is a little different than my usual doodlings, but i see a trend moving toward the UN-done look like this for me in the coming weeks. It feels very genuine and somewhat warm and inviting because of it….like a conversation. Approachable and friendly. i haven’t named it yet, though i’ve had many suggestions on facebook.
Fingerpaint was my favorite theme so far.
Maybe Fingerpaint & Chalk??
