First Real Painting
I use Art Rage for making a variety of things except paintings. An example would be to take a photograph, convert it to an India Ink "drawing", make a stencil and color in things the way I wanted them to look. This time I thought I might try something original - This is what I used to see when I went to the beach to play my guitar in San Francisco where I grew up -- late spring and summer during the mid morning to afternoon before a class. That was many years ago and I am now on the East Coast so this was from memory. Low clouds blowing in off the ocean, with blue sky farther out, steady westerly winds were sometimes downright chilly. I am very fond of all things maritime and would like to be able to paint my own ships, seas, and weather conditions so this is a first step. I know I have a long way to go. Constructive criticism will be welcomed and appreciated.
