    Learning Artrage with Speed Paints

    Hello I'm Carl and new to the forums. Here are a bunch of speed paints I did using the starter edition. These range from 10 mins - 30 mins and the ones with writing took a little longer because lettering takes time! All my paintings are created willy nilly without a plan, I just start drawing lines or laying paint and let them evolve from that. Anyway I love this program and bought the full version today so will be doing some new stuff soon.

    The main reason I like Artrage is for the color mixing of paints. I am partially color blind and it's difficult for me to understand color and what goes with what and being able to lay colors next to each other and mix them really helps. I think it'll show in my work since the greyscale images tend to be better then color.

    Anyway I come from the world of 3d modeling/design and am teaching myself traditional art since that's how I learn best. I hope you like my work and I hope to do a bunch more!

    Carl

    I am also learning myself poetry for the heck of it. These 3 go in order. First one was a 10 min painting then I made a poem inspired by it quickly even though it's not very good it shows my learning process. The second one I made the painting first and it inspired the poem but I'm not a fan of the composition. Finally the third one I spent about 45 mins on (my longest painting yet!) and I wanted to do something colorful and make a peom about my color blindness. Fun stuff!

    Hi Carl and welcome to here. In my opinion ... your first 10 offerings are gallery ready. Simply wonderful. You might want to check your spelling though on your art poems. Your approach is what I personally call Jungian. Carl Jung used to have his patients paint as part of their therapy. The strength of speed painting is that the concious brain gets pushed aside and that seems to be working for you.

    I take it you like flowers? Nice paints, I enjoyed looking at them, the last one is nice, and the very colorful flower piece is nice too.
