Getting right with colour

I came across this wonderful tool made by artist Richard Robinson – The Gamut Mask which is free from his site  http://www.livepaintinglessons.com/gamutmask.php

Easy to use with any medium, digital or traditional. This cool colour wheel allows for a huge range of palettes to bring harmony to your work. Dont forget I love to see What you create using any of the tools featured on my blog, from my custom brushes & palettes to apps etc ive found useful in my own work. I think i might feature some of it here, so send me your best projects! ❤️🦁🎨image

 

Skelly, an artists friend!

Hi everyone….. I recently found an awesome app called ‘Skelly’ & had to grab it straight away….no longer do we need the wooden anatomy figures that grace many an artists studio, Skelly has us covered! A full skeleton with various pre programmed poses, plus the ability to move skelly into infinite silohettes with all the joints moving seperately makes this little app a must have for any artist that loves to paint the human form. Skelly can also be changed into a robotic looking version of the traditional wooden figure, with a chrome covering his bony bod! The app also features light source that can be moved to show various angles how light hits the body & creates shadows…. Check it out now, i think you’ll find it to be a great tool as i have- ❤️🦁🎨

Always learning….

My belief is as an artist, i will be learning for the rest of my life….it never stops, theres always something another artist can offer you. I make time for study at least a few hours each week…at present im doing human anatomy, as this is an area i need to hone my skills. Below is a page from my notes, a bit messy i know but readable.. 😝 Sort of! The basics of drawing & painting are needed whatever medium you work in…..digital is no different. Form, light, shadows, perspective, colour harmony, lost & found edges……all elements needed for a good composition & tips ill be posting will include these things. The eye is the window to the soul, so a good place to begin…enjoy the tips below, basic but necessary. ❤️🦁🎨image
