    abstract expressionist at work with ArtRage

    Hello, I'm new to ArtRage (started last week). Love the app. Here are some speed paintings and a winter landscape from the last few days....

    Greetings and welcome into the ArtRage world, mprospector!

    You show vibrant colors with strong decided strokes, nice!

    I don't know if you have prior art experience before ArtRage or not, but either way, I'm sure you'll be enjoying ArtRage for a long time. I know I am!

    In your winterscape, is the blue middle part water or snowy ground? Either way it works well, and I feel the crispiness of cold cold snow from your strong strokes.

    Nice and juicy brushwork.

    Thank you for your responses.

    I appreciate you all taking time to respond. My previous experience has been painting with acrylics and oils. What ArtRage allows is freedom to paint without concern for using $100 or more of real artist's tube paint. This way one can create endless studies of a painting....for no expense!!

    I also enjoy the possibility of creating color variations of the same "painting" (I use Photoshop Element, Adjust Hue/Saturation tool).

    The blue middle part of the winter landscape was a middle distant ridge line in shadow.

    I like these experiments with high chroma and vivid pastel colors "on the wall".

    Ah yes! wonderful experimentations with adjusting hue levels and saturation.

    I too started playing with Hue and Color ajustments, but directly in ArtRage (I use the AR Studio Pro version, aka 3.5). I posted two of those variations from a same base-painting in my thread "Rachelle's gallery", on pages 2 and 3:

    Have you tried it already? It's somewhere under the Edit menu in mine. The four elements that can be tweaked there are Luminosity, Contrast, Color and Hue. It doesn't take much to make a big change in the overall atmosphere of an image.

    Cheers!
