I have been working on my winter art and it has been fun. My Snow and… Series is a little different from my usual fantasy landscape art. I usually stick to creating new landscapes out of familiar scenes and objects. However, my Snow series is not the only exception to my usual style of art My Heaven’s Declare series is space art that I create using college, composite and painting techniques. I love painting a nebula and creating planets made from photos of bark, water, or even rusty metal.
Have you ever done something that required you to step out of the familiar and take a different direction? I have and it can be frustrating. It can also be fun and worth the time it takes to learn something new. My space art is not a simple combination of photos that I put together. It takes a few hours of trial and error (sometimes more error!) to come up with shapes, values and colors that I like. The resulting art is very different from most of the art you see in my Gallery. Here is one of my newest pieces. I have not decided on a title yet. What would you name it?
