This is just a teeny little bit of one of my new box canvases - just to give you another taster of whats coming on 1st July! Box canvases are brilliant for children's bedrooms - bright art for the wall but no heavy frame or glass to break.
This was painted digitally on the computer, created in Corel Painter 11 - not a paintbrush in sight. I'm quite new to creating art this way and I am loving exploring all the new different techniques - possibilities are endless. Here you can mash together oils, pastel and pencils, swapping between them easily to get exactly the effect you want.
It's quick and the bonus of no mess too which for me is perfect as I am the messiest painter going...if I am painting with acrylics then I end up with as much on me as on the canvas. There will be some that will always question whether digital art is as 'real' as painting with raw materials - who is to say?
I've always said I am more of an illustrator than a proper fine artist anyway so I am not entering into the argument, I'm just loving it and plan to do a lot more work this way.
