Bumble- You keep stunning me. I love seeing you advance into the tools like this and coming out with such beautiful paintings. Keep them coming my dear, keep them coming.

Hi Bumble,

I love your Carnivale very much and now you come up another one I like. They're very good paintings. I have printed the Carnviale one in 6x4. Keep looking at it. :lol:

How long does it take you to draw both paintings? Could I ask what's the actual painting scale of these two? I still have trouble to set the painting scale or canvas scale.

Gorgeous painting, Bumble. Magnificent.

And I agree with Andy.....Jack.

The flowers have a noticeable elegance about the way they flow.
That is the first thing that struck me when looking at the painting.

Peter Thank You..... :D
Thank You fashmir..... :D
Pai.....thank you. :D Hi, I usually set my canvas size to 2000 x 1448. Then I crop the image if I don't fill the canvas. The size of Carnivale after I cropped it was 1024 x 1446. And......for the Rain is 1375 x 1446. Then I resize them so I can post them here.
Carnivale took me a few weeks to finish, It took alot of concentration so I would do about an hour at a time.
....for the rain was a relatively quick one it only took me about 1 hour and a half.
Thank You Andy.... :D
Stephen Lo Piano....Thank You :D
Sorry Jack Forgot to say thank you to you....... :oops: :lol:

Dear Bumble, my favorite artrager.

Searching for my all time favorite 'Carnivale' I stumbled across this masterpiece that I missed. This painting feels SO real, almost as if I can touch it.

There are so may wonderful details. The well faded skies, the lovely stormy-desaturated lilies of grace, the strong yellow grass lines on the out-of-focus background. A wall mount.

Just wondering how you did it all and hoping that, one day, we'll se a tutorial/bag of tricks from a master.

All the best,

05-30-2007, 08:23 AM
DoodLS there you go making me blush again..... :oops: Thank You again for your kind words.... :D I don't really see myself as a master.... :lol: I learned most(if not all) of my skills from studying the wonderful works of art posted on this forum and the tutorials that some of the artists have posted here.... :D :D

Love the choice of canvas, it's a more unusual choice from the paintings I've seen here. Fantastic job! What are your general brush settings to get such a matte look?

06-24-2007, 04:04 AM
Thank You Destruct007..I used Fashmir's burlap grain for this one.
Can't quite remember what brush settings I used but looking at it...I would say for the flowers and the grass I probably used about 20% loading and 50% pressure with a thin brush. I will have to dig the original artrage file out of my archives and check :lol:

Did the background, the same way I do my skies..see my tutorial in tips and tricks :wink:

This is by far my favorite, looks so peaceful. As always, this is a great painting and you are a great painter!

11-05-2007, 09:31 PM
Stunning work Bumble. It is so beautiful. :D
What did you use for the canvas texture in this?

March 9th? Wow. I missed this one. I love it. Really commanding control of the tools.

:D :D :D

11-06-2007, 02:19 AM
wow! D Akey, no kidding! I only saw it by checking the gallery 2 section. That gallery will prove very useful.

I'm sorry I missed this painting bumble, it truly is awesome!

11-06-2007, 08:26 AM
Beautiful!!! I am so so glad this one hasn't slipped by unnoticed Bumble. I love the way you contrast the grass and the sky, and then connect them both via the flower...

I have just visited your gallery album and found several other beautiful paintings there that I had never seen before. I wish all of them were there and none were missing.

11-12-2007, 05:09 PM
Thank you artragefanatic.... :D :D
Gz..thank you :D :D I used fashmir's burlap grain fo this one, I use it alot at the moment I love it.... :D :D
Thank you D Akey.... :D :D
Rowena...thank You :D :D Hope to get most of my paintings in the gallery this week. :D :D

Beautiful! I love how you did the flowers. And that sky is the perfect shade of blue-gray that suggests gathering rainclouds.. the flowers may soon get what they are waiting for! :)

03-13-2008, 10:35 PM
This is really good. wow. The potential of Artrage is endless.. wow.

How did I miss this one?


Marvelous lighting. I love the contrast -- seems like the spirit that rises in the wake of the storm -- almost like rebirth, renewal. The spirit of life becoming almost iconic and golden in its richness. Almost a reverential feel to it.

I love it.
