With mornings taken up with tidying up and uploading Stock library images I'm giving myself the afternoons to have a rummage around in all this brush based/digital painting ..like a voyage of discovery but with a broken compass..as ever I think I'm going to have to write down lots of notes as I'm doing my usual thing of blundering into it with a rough idea of what might happen but also by sticking a wet finger in the air to gauge which way the wind might be blowing, so a bit of chucking the kitchen sink at some things, although I'm doing it on a multi layered basis so I can just ditch a layer in the bin rather than try a stack of multi undoes or run up a mountain of snapshots in history...keen eyed ones amongst you will have probably noticed that that was close to being Photoshop bollock speak..for that, as always. I apologies. So at the moment I've got my head around the Mixing brush, defining patters and using the pattern clone stamp and using a novel technique with the art history brush and as you can see from the smorgasbord of painting techniques above, slapping different techniques together and seeing what happens.. still a long way off from what I can 'see' or, and for this I apologies once more...'pre-visualise'...sheesh... but loading up with a haversack of new techniques that all this new gear is letting me, if not master, well at least have a try at and in many ways that is how I've approached a lot of my image manipulation work..yep..that's just giving it a try, no barriers..sometimes it's the only way to discover the way you want to see things.
Seem to have won some paper from Permajet...and I'm not sure why but as it's my paper of choice I'll keep an eye out for Postie.

What's all this then????
An unyeilding torrent of Photo babbel full of unconfirmed facts and manufactured photo drivel.. take from it what you like, it won't change the world but may leave you feeling nauseous...
