Digital imagery - using the computer to think around ideas for painting
Sometimes I like to use the computer to work out ideas for further paintings using the sketches and paintings I've done plein air.
These are 3 I've done that may well find themselves developing into oil paintings.
The top one is a combination of the pearly dawn sketches and the wild seas - which were in a totally different light but the movement of the waves was beautiful, as were the dawn colours. Result = wild dawn :>) - I can definitely see this one being developed in paint.
This one would lend itself to being developed as a a watercolour and coloured pencil piece don't you think?
With its muddy colours this one has more of an east coast feel - again it could be interesting in oils.
What do you think?
Do you use the computer this way?
