What to do when unwinding after a hard day of lino carving? Why, digital finger painting, of course! I discovered Fresh Paint, a little app to mess around with on my tablet while chillaxing on the couch. I have had zero time to paint in oils lately and this app allows me to have the feeling of painting without the mess and psychological attachment. Knowing the images can only be saved at a low resolution gives me permission to play. I still enjoy printmaking but am excited to explore new techniques.
I am an illustrator with many years of experience in publishing, editorial, advertising and corporate. My illustration technique is linocut, printed and scanned with color applied in Photoshop. I love mixing old school and digital technologies and now am learning to paint in oils and with a wacom tablet. I'll post my learning curve here. Variety, the spice of life!
