View Full Version : In All His Terrible Splendour

Hmmm…not exactly Christmassy!
Probably cause I started it mid-July as three separate painting starts.
Trying out MSIE’s Sprayer preset resulted in that bird-man, and the ropy-haired woman’s face was created fooling around with MSIE’s Rope-stipple stickers/presets.
Several days later, I was startled to find a woman, in the world news online, with a face and a mass of curly, titian red hair that was strangely similar to my ropy-haired woman. :cool:
Oh, and the background is tube paint smooshed around with the palette knife.
I felt they all belonged together, and finally got around to setting it up. Transforming the size, and duplicating the layers with two different blend modes, I toned down the hair of my “ropy-haired woman’s face” layer. But that turned her face blue! Then I had to muck about at a tiny size to repaint half of her face. Yikes. :D

Anyway, it is not a landscape. :p

I cannot say who this colorful old crow is (also considerin the stick needed to walk). :p A gorgeous artrageous genetical experiment for sure! :cool:

Of course you should stick around, Eighty+, no need to leave, unless it stops being fun, but then, you can still poke a little fun at us, and make us laugh at ourselves. :):):):)

Hey Caesar,
Maybe he’s an old bird from down under, just needing a walking stick to go with his fine plumage, when out on the town. :p
And that repainted portion of the woman’s face glowing in the Sun-light, looks to me now like a sitting pigeon. :D:)

Thank you, Coops.
Always appreciate your comments, and I do always stop in to admire your paintings, even when I don’t have the time, or perhaps am too tired, to sign in and comment. :):p:)

Hey hinket. Do artist like fun I think they did when students splashing around with no holds barred but on entering the sacred tomb of art:D you must walk
Around on tiptoe :eek:But then as a novice just starting plus being a boy from the backwoods:cool: and old :D I want to play like you all did when starting so
You'll have to scuse the crap I'm smashing out as I just finding what it's all about lucky for me as apart from the digital stuff I'm still smashing out my bus sketch,es so I seem to have the best of both worlds if I'm not careful
I'll begin to believe that even Picasso was great::D:D:D

Thank you, Mannafig,
love it that you actually stopped in to look,
hope you did get a chuckle out of this. :):):)

What are you saying, Eighty+, that Picasso was not great? :eek:
But he believed he was! :):p:)
