Re: the sky is ink

the bird is the Northern SkullCap - when they get stuck they scream even louder than the Australian OhNo bird! About dexterity, Me neither - but I'm getting closer and getting better at refining and seeing things wrong... But with layers and photoshop etc, dexterity is no longer a requirement! “Nor...

Re: Monthly Masters' Discussion - December 2018 - Bruegel's "Census At Bethlehem"

I like the subdued colors/light - reminds me of a cloudy day. I suspect Minnie likes Bruegel's kitchen sink very well. And I do too, everything seems to have its place and the images speaks about hustle and bustle and community and building, collecting, keeping things going, working, LIFE.

Re: Minnie's 52

This is wonderful Min. Love how you placed tomten and pig such that they were contrasted against the darkness. Love the fabric/texture of the basket in comparison to the other objects. Love how the candy cane and the flowers point towards our two friends. Love how it is sharp and clear up front and ...

Re: the sky is ink

Well done Piet, your artist is showing again…..as for lines, my thoughts are that they provide a guide for the light to be contoured around for whatever contrast is desired…I could also be wrong but this contrast is what forms shape (more contrast more shape} and contouring the light is the means t...

Re: the sky is ink

In Frank's Hoodie thread we were discussing Form and Light - here I drew another head, added the bird and twigs, painted light on the planes, and then ran it through a bunch of filters and used masks to be selective. (A very sloppy and fast effort, but wanted to continue the discussion. I don't know...

Re: Hoddie

Your last image was a vast improvement over my earlier cut, I was just thinking aloud... I hope I am slowly improving. Sometimes I feel like a dog that is chasing his tail!

If I can go just a little bit faster, and stretch just a little bit further, I'll be able to take a solid, hard bite!!

The dog makes me smile, and makes me miss Toby. I still haven't been able to get my husband to let us get another, though it's been 3 years.
also, it may be time to start dropping "not so subtle" hits. You could get a robovac and tape ears and a tail on it, and paint the name Roby on him.
