Hi all,

thank you for following this thread.
I like to see your mood with these paintings.

Pai, how do you do to mix the colors ? when I use the knife, It's not as smooth as your paintings... do you use a lot of diluant ?

I don't know if this is abstract but it's something.

Hi Cannelle, mostly I will select the same range of color (i think call same scale) and use the edge palette knife with very low pressure and then mostly blend with soft palette knife.

There are lots of tutorials in this Tips and Tricks. Here are just few ones that related to blending. You may want to try out. Hope it helps.

Fun to look in here, enjoyed them all, and wanted to add a couple, one that I posted badly and want to try again, then another just for fun.

Rob in Denver
11-30-2008, 07:21 PM
Then just for fun. I called it "Party worms". Maybe not abstract, but nonrepresentational at least.

pai
12-02-2008, 06:48 AM
All these new ones are interesting, colorful and very creative. Most important I can see the fun of making them. Very nice ones. :)

Here is my try again. One is oil and one is airbrush.

Rob in Denver
12-02-2008, 10:02 PM
I like these alot Pai! The first one, I could imagine as a HUGE painting, maybe 6 feet by 12 feet--that would be very cool.
I like those burnt edges on the 2nd, and the mysterious feel of the piece.
As always, great work you do!

pai
12-03-2008, 05:41 AM
Thanks Rob for the nice words. :) Most of the time when I paint, I picture the painting on a very very large canvas..ha..ha. I am happy you can view that too. I also like the last one too. It's kind of illusion feel to me like your "party worm".

Hi,
At the outset, my hearty New Year Greeetings to you all!
I am a newbie here; I usually post my images in the Galery. I happen to see this thread and found very interesting.
Here is my stuff (done with ArtRage 2.5) and I request for your C&C.

Wenkat, your abstracts with human forms inspired me.
Here is mine, I called it 'Passion Dance'

Vasilenko
01-04-2009, 06:09 AM
And one more. I got the oil colors from the tube, the colors I think go well together, I put them in chaos on the paper and started to doodle with palette knife, no layers, no eraser and this is what I got. I called it 'Flesh'

coops
01-04-2009, 10:48 PM
I think your paintings are great Vasilenko. I love the figures in them, must give it a go.

01-05-2009, 11:22 AM
Vasilenko, I really like your two scruplture-liked creations. The color and movement are beautiful.:)

Dany, your abstract is so romantic and feel like impressionist painting. :)

Wenkat, nice warm and soothing color and movement. :)

PowerBomb Yo, welcome. glad you are having fun in your first piece. Very brightful one, like snowball fall from sunny day. :)

...then..more..more..

..here is one more in 10 mins..abstract mood...ha..ha..

Vasilenko, so beautiful roses and i like the strokes you made on them.:)
Very modern abstract movement, wenkat. Look likes those hang in gallery.:)
ArtNuovo, I think besides your amazing comic strips, I think your abstract is awesome.:)
I really like the first abstract painting a lot, Someonesane. Those shapes and color palette combined so well with your texture background. :)

...another one..just simply let the movement and color flow as usual...nothing in mind...just splash it..

Someonesane, very nice abstracts and very good ones.
Wenkat and Pai, you both are masters of color.

Thanks Weembaman and Vasilenko :)
So many beautiful on new additons.
Vasilenko, the Artrage one is brilliant. I like it.:)
...and Albert, you should not hide yours, I like them. They have something more in it than just color and movements. :)

...doing one to loosen my mind on other paintings...

Rob in Denver
01-07-2009, 02:57 PM
I love so many of these. Vasilinko Artrage should use your painting for their Logo, I think it is great for that, Gzairborne I loved looking at yours, and Pai,
only you could make me sit and stare at an egg ( or maybe it is a stone-it doesn't matter)! All the rest, I loved all of them.

Vasilenko
01-07-2009, 06:26 PM
Gzairborne, beautiful abstracts! Pai, your sense of paint mixing and the egg form is superb!
My Art. painting, if the ArtRage team want it, for logo, online banner or whatever, I give it to them, even have file with no signature and no writing on it, so it's possible to change the font or add the writing. I'm glad you like it. :)

And it's just a joy to see all the abstracts in this thread, so many colors, styles and concepts or no concept at all but you can feel the movement and the colors, shapes... it's a great inspiration.

pai
01-07-2009, 09:39 PM
Thanks Rob and Vasilenko. :) Wonder what will come out from that egg.....

....maybe the egg came from here...an abstract land..that will start the living life..

irishrose
01-07-2009, 10:43 PM
Wow, Pai, this is a great thread... gets me motivated again!

Welcome Vasilenko! You have the greatest shots there! The Ragers must be beaming! Love that one with the Logo! :) They are ALL winners in my book!

Wenkat... great to see you here!!!! :)

Vasilenko
01-07-2009, 10:49 PM
Thank you, Rose. Pai, keep going with this fantastic story about the egg. ;)

weembaman, you must have been watching Attenborough, I agree with Pai, it's like an ape, the second one is very delicate.
Like those coloured baubles Pai.

Dany51
01-12-2009, 03:08 AM
Dear Pai, I adore your bubbles, they look almost like grapes;
the soft shades in it and the three dimensional look are magnific.
All your work is much better lately, do you work only with AR2.5 or you used painter or some different soft ?
really very, very good.

I haven't posted anything in a while.
Here's an abstract that I painted earlier and thought this is the perfect place to post it.
I used pencil, glitter, eraser, tube-paint and pallette-knife tools:

Wow!

What a great thread. Alas, there are too many pics to comment on individually. But I find the collected works very dynamic and creative as all heck. Lots of energy.

The theme of abstraction really calls to the artist in so many. Good to see.

Thanks for the treats.

lazlazlaz1, looks like swimming under in a clear sea in a brightful day. those little bubbles shines. :)

Wenkat, your abstracts have a new different look now. I really like the white background with the red paint in the middle one. Lots of movenments in there. :)

Need to express your self with shapes and colors ? this thread is for you ;)

I start with this colorful piece.
I like to paint and not knowing where it will go.


I just started painting lines on the canvas and this is what I wound up with .......

Dear Mary, both beautiful lines and colors, but just have to ask,,, how in the world did you get that one to animate?, so very cool!!!! good job!:)

MaryS.Hines
05-15-2009, 06:29 PM
Dear Mary, both beautiful lines and colors, but just have to ask,,, how in the world did you get that one to animate?, so very cool!!!! good job!:)

thanks, Lee :) as for animating, first I saved the projects in stages, almost every time I would add a stick, I'd save it as a jpeg...then I just put all the jpegs in a gif converter program....you could also put the jpegs in a movie program, any movie program would work if you don't have a program that converts to gif file format (for example, 'windows movie maker, or avs video) ,,,..but movies are usully quite larger end files than gifs, much larger...if you have photo story 3, that's a good gif converter, and you can add music to it and special effects,,ps3 lets you save in movie format or gif...it lets you 'batch' select your files so you don't have to import them one at a time, ..(just click 'shift' after you select the first jpeg)..that's a big plus,,I used about 25 jpegs for that one little animation..:eek:......ps3 usually comes with your pc, as a windows application...but if you don't have ps3, just go online n do a search for 'gif converter'..you'll get lots of results........you can also animate jpegs in most 3D programs,n they usually let you save in gif.

maybe we can talk Tycho into adding a 'animation timeline' and 'gif converter' plug-in to ArtRage2 ? ;) then we could animate our images while we're in AR2...wouldn't that be great ? :):):):):):):):):):):):):)
maybe they could put a timeline in the next version (ArtRage3 ?) would be glad to pay for the upgrade.:):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

Lee
05-15-2009, 11:53 PM
Dear Mary, thank you so much for the information!!! so easy to understand too!! the outcome was beautiful, don't think any post like that here yet,,, good job,, will look for the gif programs out there and YES!!! Tycho ceartainly has inside influence, an AR gif program would be super!!!!:):):)
