    copespeak, jean, alexandra, thank you for your kind words! and jibes, thank you for commenting...

    A note about the painting: It illustrates a line in classical Chinese poetry: "When you are on the mountain, you cannot see the mountain" ... The idea is that the mountain is real, but the views of it must be imagined ... The graphic treatment lends support, because in Overlay mode, depending on values and opacities of the base color, a continuous stroke in single-line crosshatching can be resolved as dark and light as it crosses boundaries ...

    copespeak, I look forward to seeing your forays into the overlay blend mode :-) I have to say, my interests in it are somewhat limited to moments when I want to recreate the feel of inks on a toned ground ... this is related to my endless search for a way to produce woodcuts in digital ... maybe later I'll put up a goldfish I've been working on, it's done purely in overlay mode ....


    byron, thank you for your interest ... I've gone back to the beginning of your AR3/4 thread -- the overwhelming feeling is "back to the future," because your bold experiments, done with so much energy, have increased awareness of the power of digital to push the frontiers of art in positive directions, and clearly have influenced the course of its development, so that I have the impression I'm standing on the shoulders of a giant ... I noticed that in 2009 you already were exploring the virtues of the pencil ... This primitive tool, like the chinese ink brush, is the one I struggle with the most in digital art -- it's an experience that can inhibiting, but also liberating, as your mapping of the tool's potential, way back then, demonstrates ...
