I have not done much in the way of fine arts in the last 20 years or more. I am sadly out of practice. Ever since I began taking more photographs and purchased my first Graphics Software, Microsoft PhotoDraw 2000 version 2, I have gotten very lazy. I have given up on the idea of spending many hours concentrating with pastel or paintbrush when I can receive the same results in a few minutes with my original photographs, a computer and decent software. In fact I can do much more with less effort. I am so spoiled that I thank God this was NOT around during the time of Rembrandt & Leonardo Da Vinci or we would have missed out on so many great works. I do think that Da Vinci would have come up with better software ideas than all of them!
I have really enjoyed the years I just experimented and piddled in all kinds of mediums just for the heck of it. I posted the “Fish Curtain” I did with transfers and free hand painting on a muslin panel last year.
Please view the video I created presenting a few computer graphics followed by brief instructions for each. If you have any questions feel free to post them in the comments.
