I’ve been playing with my new digital art app for the Mac called Pavo. I downloaded it with the intention of using it as an editing tool for enhancing photographs, but discovered that it works better as an artistic medium. Although unlike an oil painting there are no drying times in between digital layers which greatly speeds up the process of producing a piece of art, this also allows me to work at the speed of my intuition, which I like. It still takes as long as it takes, and I work from a blank canvas so to speak. My mouse has become my paintbrush. It’s a different medium than I’m used to working with, but it’s growing on me and I like the effects that can be achieved through painting with light. Certainly a different intensity of colour can be achieved, which for me is heavenly. I don’t think it will ever replace my love of oils, but it’s a fine medium for producing art.
As I used a friend as inspiration for my first piece of digital art posted the other day, I thought I would focus on another lovely friend of mine and see what kind of art I produced. So this piece entitled ‘The Wanderer’ is for my lovely friend Argus, who has become a very inspirational blog pal.
