Re: Jarret - an artistic portrait

Really nicely done Duck. I’m always interested in any info on the “ how” since I like artistic processing. Thanks Minnie, I'm glad to hear you like this one. This image is a combination of posterization and watercolor brushes. I isolated the subject from my background and used a watercolor brush to...

Re: Monthly Masters' Discussion - July 2019 - Thomas Kincade - Kitsch or Classic?

One of my earliest memories of Thomas Kinkade's art was from my grandmother's house. She was an avid jigsaw puzzle aficionado and I clearly recall helping her complete a puzzle that featured one of his iconic cottage paintings. While I never really paid much attention to his work at that time of my ...
