    Flying Log

    This is a painting where I put a number of tricks I learned about using together:
    1. paint tubes, knife, air tool and chalk
    2. alternate sheet paper type
    Do it on a couple of layers in order not to mess up, then merge.
    this way it took really little, about one hour and just because I proceeded trial and error due to very initial experience with them.

    Would You like starting a thread where we make works exploring some of the possibilities allowed more by ArtRage facilitators rather than personal art skill?

    Your experiment turned out quite well! The title is certainly appropriate.

    The idea of a forum where experiments with the various tools are posted sounds interesting. Perhaps it could be a subset of the Ambient Spotlights forum?
    The only problem with humor is that no one takes it seriously.

    Caesar,
    "Flying Log" is an excellent example of
    texture and how to apply it to appropriate
    subjects. The bark texture is wonderfully
    executed.

    Caesar:
    Bravo!
    Extraordinario trabajo experimentando recursos.
    Si ves mi "A horse, a test", verás que trato de hacer algo similar.
    Tu pintura quedó excelente.

    Bravo!
    Amazing work testing Art Rage resources.
    If you take a look my "A horse, a test", you can see that I´m trying some similar job.
    Your painting it´s superb.

    By all that's natural -- what in tarnation is that?

    That's really exquisite foliage, especially by the top left.

    But what's that chunk of wood falling from the sky? Icarus's early attempts at a space platform (out of wood) that got too close to the sun, lost orbit and is plummeting to earth?

    I hate when that happens.

    Thank You all dear friends!

    I worked a little more on texture and 3-D effect, but I see also promising light effects, Scott. So I don't knoe where next one should more appropriately go.

    Dear Mair, with one more layer made of chalk and other touches I bet it can be further improved. Moreover this is just one type of bark You can get (this is imaginary, no reference). Many others might be obtained. Perhaps I'll have to try on a "bark brochure"!

    Well Bob, You invented so many great textures and applied them so wonderfully that in Your hands these tricks would produce real marvels!

    No add-on, ArtRage only, dear Jim. The rough explanation of the procedure (not merely mechanical though) is in another one of my recent posts with experiments, the one with metallurgy and wood texture, if I'm not wrong.

    Dear Rick, the background took really little time considering it did not require details because out of focus. Mostly I had just to switch among different types of sheets and give the strokes where I intended to, with chalks substantially. It's imaginary too. You just look at stains and spots, I capture some sort of vision and You make it come out more, like for statues.

    Thanks Damaso, I saw and commented Your amazing and tasty experiment.

    Dear DA, look at it like a surrealistic painting to come back to something You already experimented and leave anxiety disappear. In any case I would not stay under it to discover he just lost of lift or a well hidden bird felt its gut a bit loose! LOL

    Thumbs up

    I absolutely love all the structures! Needless to mention the beautiful crispness of the bark, bouncing it off the screen! However, I mostly respond to the amazingly wonderful tree suggestion in the upper left corner! That's drop-dead-gorgeous stuff!!!

    Congratulations, Ceasar!
