Maris

Digital Painting

I am working on a postcard announcing I am taking commissions to paint digital portraits.  I needed a new painting for the postcard and did this of my friend Maris from a shoot we did a few years ago at the studio at Gallery Meraki.  Maris was my go to model in NY and a real trooper.  She always jumped right into whatever vision I had and made my work better.  So thanks for that Maris.  I really enjoyed making this painting.  I feel like my style is evolving with each and every painting I do.  I am almost overwhelmed with the number of painting and drawing brushes in photoshop since they added the Kyle brush tools to the program.  I spent 20+ years using one brush in photoshop it was a soft round brush and it is essential to editing photos, but the dozens of new painterly and drawing brushes and blenders are amazing.  I am slowly finding my favorites that suite my style.  

The postcard and a digital version of it will be available by the time the Art of Jazz on J Street opens on 1/16.  It will be the perfect place to kick off my portrait painting service.  I will give more details about that in an upcoming post.

Now it is back to school work for a while.  I am also taking a class tonight on drawing on your iPad.  I really love adding new ways to create art!  I am really looking forward to it.

Keep Makin' Art!

Carl
