    In All His Terrible Splendour


    Hmmm…not exactly Christmassy!
    Probably cause I started it mid-July as three separate painting starts.
    Trying out MSIE’s Sprayer preset resulted in that bird-man, and the ropy-haired woman’s face was created fooling around with MSIE’s Rope-stipple stickers/presets.
    Several days later, I was startled to find a woman, in the world news online, with a face and a mass of curly, titian red hair that was strangely similar to my ropy-haired woman.
    Oh, and the background is tube paint smooshed around with the palette knife.
    I felt they all belonged together, and finally got around to setting it up. Transforming the size, and duplicating the layers with two different blend modes, I toned down the hair of my “ropy-haired woman’s face” layer. But that turned her face blue! Then I had to muck about at a tiny size to repaint half of her face. Yikes.

    Anyway, it is not a landscape.

    Eighty+, Thanks for the funny take on this,
    but, it is some artist nut right now doing the painting.
    And did you consider the bird-man the tourist?

    Iceaxe, Thank you.

    Hey Gxhpainter, thank you, I appreciate your comment!

    I cannot say who this colorful old crow is (also considerin the stick needed to walk). A gorgeous artrageous genetical experiment for sure!
    Panta rei (everything flows)!

    Of course you should stick around, Eighty+, no need to leave, unless it stops being fun, but then, you can still poke a little fun at us, and make us laugh at ourselves.

    Hey Caesar,
    Maybe he’s an old bird from down under, just needing a walking stick to go with his fine plumage, when out on the town.
    And that repainted portion of the woman’s face glowing in the Sun-light, looks to me now like a sitting pigeon.

    Thank you, Coops.
    Always appreciate your comments, and I do always stop in to admire your paintings, even when I don’t have the time, or perhaps am too tired, to sign in and comment.

    Hey hinket. Do artist like fun I think they did when students splashing around with no holds barred but on entering the sacred tomb of art you must walk
    Around on tiptoe But then as a novice just starting plus being a boy from the backwoods and old I want to play like you all did when starting so
    You'll have to scuse the crap I'm smashing out as I just finding what it's all about lucky for me as apart from the digital stuff I'm still smashing out my bus sketch,es so I seem to have the best of both worlds if I'm not careful
    I'll begin to believe that even Picasso was great:
