Painter

I got Corel Painter 2017 for Christmas, but have not been able to use it until today. It has been a lot of fun to play around with. I have only scratched the surface of the program’s capabilities. I am really looking forward to learning the ins and outs. For now, I’ll give you a preview of what I’ve done so far…

Sketch Fest and New Work

Last weekend I participated in Sketch Fest for the first time.  Sketch Fest takes place once a month and is, as described on the site, a “24 hour creative jam session with artists across the world, brought to you by Ellen Million Graphics.”  The artists pick prompts and do a 1 hour sketch of the subject.

Here are the two sketches I did for it.

Prompt – Prehistoric Cave Art (sold)

Prompt – Pocket Frog (for sale on the Sketch Fest website)

In other news, I have been doing a lot of pyrography this past month. Here is a look at my newest pieces. Most can be found for sale on my Art Fire shop here
