View Full Version : Pool fun

I hate to be pushy, and a spotlight hog, but I had to show this image of the water stencil painting. I think it's missing more, it may can use something like another person, or a pool toy or something. I thought of it when I finished it lol. What are your views?

I'm glad to see that I'm not the only one that doesn't know when they should quit. :) It's much easier to look at someone else's work and say "You got it just right"

Evart, this is very entertaining! I like this one

Thank you all so very much. I thought to add a little something else to it, and chose to place a little boy in the midst, floating in an inner tube. What do you think of it now? :D

Great paintings, dear Evart and I would really appreciate You teaching us how You get such wonderful and unique transparent water effect (exploiting appropriately the gloop per I'd guess).

Here, i like the waterEvelyn, it is so well done, it seems it is moving right now. Pleasant work in vibrant colors.

The water effect in this is excellent. I'm looking forward to what more you do with this technique. Good stuff.

Thank you so much AT-TA and bobbi! Caesar, I used a stencil to acheive the water effect in AR2. Stencils can work great, if the subject was digitally photographed.

Evart, I found that every time I see your art, it has so much daily life in it. When I said that, it means I feel the present moment in your art. It's amazing. Another wonderful one which i can feel the boy's joyful smile because he's so much fun in it. :)

01-28-2010, 02:38 PM

Pai, thank you so much for your beautiful sentiments. Thank you barnburner, and Rod for your wonderful comment. :)

How did you get the ripples in the water? I have AR3 but I don't see the water stencil. You indicated you were using AR2. I have AR 2.5 and don't see it there either. Sure would like to get that effect. Please tell me how you did it.

My Dear Evart.Integration with the feelings of your colors.so much a painter.but you are one of them. envy you.

Thank you as212, I really appreciate your comment. Carlcath, yes I used a stencil, but I made the stencil from a digital photo of pool water. In AR2, there is a way to create stencils from a photo or a drawing. Check the forum on how to techniques. Also, look up the forum's artist named Khalid, to learn how to get the rippling affect of water. Thank you for commenting!
