Digital paintings

This week I have been creating some new digital paintings. This first one was done in iColorama and Metabrush.

Abstract

This is the first in a series of abstracts based on tangle patterns. This one is based on a pattern called Membranart by Tomás Padrós.

This one is based on the Echo Lines techniques by Eni Oken, using one of my metallic textures.

And this is another piece in Tricia Dewey’s Framed Botanicals class. I found this photo on Pixabay of a hand holding a photo frame, and I thought it would work for a class painting.

Digital paintings from online class part 2

I am still working on the online class Framed Botanicals by Tricia Dewey.

Here are four more paintings based on my own backgrounds, and photos of botanicals from Pixabay. I created the first one in honour of Remembrance Day, November 11th.

Digital paintings from online class

I have been in a bit of a rut with my digital painting lately. Then I started a great online class called Framed Botanicals by Tricia Dewey. It’s an awesome class.

I have created these three paintings, mostly in Procreate, and I am working on a bunch more. What fun!

Some digital art and a little bead embroidery

This is a digital painting of an owl, based on a photo from Pixabay, and done using Metabrush and iColorama apps.

This is a stylized flower layered digitally with one of the backgrounds I made using metallic paint.

On a different note, this is a new beaded pin I made as an entry in a contest. I didn’t win, but I now have a groovy new pin to wear!

Art with digital filters

In my digital art, I like to play with photo filter apps, often layering different ones for a special effect. Here is an example. First, the photo, and then three different effects.

Jewelry and Beadwork

A little change of pace today. First, I painted some paper with metallic paints and made these two bracelets. The bracelets are from Beadaholique, and it’s simple to cut the squares with a paper punch.

I am getting back into bead embroidery, and my friend Nicole Campanella (creator of Nicole’s Bead Backing) is having a contest. I bought some of her cabochons, and I will be making a bead embroidery piece to enter the contest. You can find the info on Nicole’s cabs and the contest on her website, beadwright.com.

Cabochons

I also bought these great eyes from Nixcreations on Etsy. I will incorporate some of these in my piece.
