Today’s Art (21st May 2018)

Unfortunately, I wasn’t feeling very inspired. So, today’s artwork is a digitally-edited drawing (rather than a digitally-edited painting) of some kind of random formal party.

Today’s Art (20th May 2018)

Well, this digitally-edited painting was kind of random and slightly uninspired. Still, it gave me a chance to practice painting distant backgrounds and adding more realistic shadows/shading to my art with digital tools.

“At The Ruins” By C. A. Brown

Today’s Art (19th May 2018)

Today’s digitally-edited painting was originally going to be a cyberpunk painting. However, about halfway through making it, I realised that it wasn’t going to turn out as well as I’d hoped. So, I took the rare step of abandoning it halfway through adding paint to it and starting a totally new painting. Since I happened to be listening to Cradle Of Filth’s “Darkly, Darkly, Venus Aversa” at the time, I realised that I was more in the mood for making some gothic/heavy metal-style art. And this painting was the result 🙂

“Upon The Rooftop” By C. A. Brown

Today’s Art (18th May 2018)

Today’s 1990s-themed picture is actually a digitally-edited drawing, rather than a digitally-edited painting. This was mostly because I wanted to experiment with slightly more “realistic” art and with digital editing tools, but also had less time/inspiration/enthusiasm to do this. So, making a digitally-edited drawing (with the line art drawn by hand, but everything else added digitally) seemed like a good compromise.

Although I probably messed up the shading in this picture slightly, I still quite like how it turned out.

“Retro Moment” By C. A. Brown

Today’s Art (17th May 2018)

Today’s digitally-edited painting is one that I painted from memory (and, no, you don’t need a “photographic memory” to learn how to memorise scenes that you want to paint a short while later) about an hour after seeing this beautiful landscape near Portsdown Hill. I’m not sure if I’ve painted this particular scene before, but I quite like how this painting turned out.

“And A Wonderful Evening” By C. A. Brown

Today’s Art (16th May 2018)

Unfortunately, I was feeling extremely uninspired when I made this digitally-edited painting. Or, more accurately, I was so uninspired that after two failed attempts at making a painting, I found one of my failed attempts at making a painting from the day before and then added some paint to it and a few digital effects (to turn a mediocre “drawn from memory” picture of Penglais Hill in Aberystwyth into some kind of weird 1980s-style gothic paintings).

“On The Hill” By C. A. Brown

Today’s Art ( 15th May 2018)

Well, I was still experimenting with using a mildly more realistic style when I made today’s digitally-edited painting. Originally, this was going to be a painting of a busy formal party – but it ended up being a 1980s/90s style sci-fi painting (with a hint of the 1960s) mostly because I messed up part of the original painting and needed to cover up this part of the background.
