Vigour

Chromabesque - Vigour

I experimented with painting environments and different ways of adding colour to a monochrome painting. Photoshop was used to add colour through gradient maps and layer modes. Some reference was used for the background. I learned a lot from this piece and it was fun to work on. The ipad app ‘Procreate’ was used to create this painting.

This was enjoyable to work on, and painting with chalk brushes allowed for a painterly result.

A painting of one of my original characters. Tried the technique of painting in black and white (grisaille) and then overlay (or glaze) colours on subsequent layers. The ipad app ‘Procreate’ was used to create this painting.

Filigree

A painting made on the iPad. This was an enjoyable painting, and I liked the different categories of brushes, such as the calligraphy and the traditional media styles. I chose a vivid colour scheme, with a hint of earthy colours for the background.
