    Colorist: Susan Theresa M.

    Hi,

    I started out as an amateur artist in my younger days but now at the age of 68 I like to color in adult coloring books (especially Dover Publications)That I scan into my art computer and color with ArtRage5.

    I am a colorist and I have a lot of pleasant hours pursuing my form of art. Here are a couple of illustrations I recently finished

    How fun is this! Beautiful designs and sweet colors.

    You're definitely in a great place to really express yourself in colors. And you're doing so. Welcome!!!!

    Hi D. Akey,

    Thank you for the encouragement and the welcome! The colorings take a long time to do so I can't post often. What I displayed was probably 8 months work.

    But I could be more active in the forum in other ways. I will explore as time allows.

    Hi eighty+,

    Thank you for replying to my post. It's great to get encouragement from real artists. Do you have your work in the Gallery? I'd like to see it. I don't quite know how to view other peoples work.

    Best regards,

    Susan

    Colorist: Susan Theresa M. New Picture!

    terry0205

    Hi there,

    I found my flash drives where I had uploaded some files I did in the past and I have one for you today.
    It's called Entangled Butterfly 1 from the coloring book of that name. What's different about this one is that at the end of the coloring I removed or deleted layer 1 which had the black and white picture and voila! the lines that had been left black changed to a brilliant white!

    Hope you enjoy,

    Great find! I like the white lines, actually. Makes it brighter and shows off the colors like pools on a page or white canvas and where you have dark magenta or black lines it shows up like a variation on a theme. Snazzy design that puts me in mind of lovely turn of the century stained glass designs with light coming through.

    As to a place where artists can show their work, there used to be a gallery where artists could bundle up their work in one place on the ArtRage site, but I haven't seen it in a long while. I think your best bet in the case of seeing Eighty+'s work is to just fan through his thread as that's the only place he's posted his work.

    Anyway, you keep on with your stuff. It's beautiful.
