Wonderful work Artsy Fartsy! Done plein air is very impressive, and the laptop/wacom outside sounds like you've gone to a lot of trouble. The tyres are amazing, they're all amazing!

Great Work!

I'll have to try the digital painting outside sometime. Not right now it's winter in Wisconsin.:D Do you take a photograph of your subject too so that you can capture the light? Do you came back on another day or do you finish in one sitting? I haven't even sketched outside since I was in high School.

'Autumn road'

this is a 2 hr study -- focusing on color and light and experimenting with the tools/software (mainly done using the Blending Marker tool, along with a palette knife)

EDIT: Here is a time lapse recording of "Autumn road' being created: http://www.youtube.com/v/B11Th4JefGQ...p;amp;hl=en_US (http://www.youtube.com/v/B11Th4JefGQ?fs=1&hl=en_US)

** the original painting took 2 hrs to complete.. this playback video has been sped up and the running time is approx 11 minutes to watch the full video

Hi Chad,
Terrific pieces, you've a nice touch. I like those old tires a lot. All of the pieces are splendid. I hope you'll post a lot more.

damasocl, drawing4art, Old Geoff, byroncallas, justjean, Alexandra, Lindae, tapirmalayo and Aunt_Betsy -- thanks for the kind words -- really appreciate it!

Aunt Betsy: to answer your question -- i approach my digital plein air painting like traditional, in that i want to capture to scene composition and color as quick as possible (under an hour), because of the sun/shadows changing.. i do take digital photos and then, if needed.. i'll complete the piece back in my studio. The 'old tires' piece was completed back in my studio-- because of the intricate details with the treads, etc.. but the 'old barn' piece was done in about 1.5 hrs, all on location

i have an ASUS EP121 slate PC -- that has a stylus and pressure sensitivity, with Art Rage installed.. and that has been great for doing artwork 'on the go!'

Thank you so much for answering my questions. I've done some painting from photos I've taken, but I remember one of the PBS art teachers saying that you don't really get the same effect as you do from painting outside or plein air painting.

I think I have everything I would need to do plein air painting. I have a small but powerful laptop and a small Wacom drawing pad. I even have a digital broadband card so I would even have internet if I could get a Sprint signal. I have a 800W power convertor for my car so I could even recharge my laptop while driving. Now all I need is Spring.:D

Your Autumn Road is wonderful. It's amazing that you did that in 2 hours. I really like how you have your paint color dabs on the sides. It's helpful to know what your work flow is like.

Hi ArtY Farty what happened to the bloke sitting and the Bison ??? just a thought :confused: :D :D

Caesar
03-02-2013, 05:11 AM
The detail is as much interesting than the whole and shows a complex approach to get a quite tasty texture!

artsy fartsy
03-02-2013, 06:53 AM
pai, coops, eighty + -- thanks for the responses!

caesar: thanks! -- i love the use of texture.. and it's something i've been working on for many years, to achieve something that i think works well (for my needs) -- a lot of the base layers get this from the directional strokes of using a palette knife and having a textured paper -- but i found that working in layers (with transparency) allows you to work back over the top of your layers, and adds more 'depth'

I agree. Wonderful to see your work. I actually followed your link to your DA stuff as well. Great all around. Very inspiring.

This is a celebration in orange. Great lighting, wonderful dimension. And very seasonal as well. Good stuff.

I wonder if turkeys' version of the red flag is orange. Danger! Danger! Fly away! :eek::eek::eek::eek::eek::p:p:p:p:p:cool::cool::co ol::cool::cool::D:D:D:D:D:):):):):)
