Today’s Art (28th April 2017)

Well, I was feeling slightly uninspired when I made today’s digitally-edited painting. This gothic horror painting also required more editing than I expected after I scanned it (eg: cropping it for compositional reasons, raising the colour saturation levels, altering the colour scheme digitally etc..)

Well, today’s digitally-edited painting is based on a dream I had the night before I painted it.

Amongst other things, the dream involved walking around a surreal version of Waterlooville, that was filled with random 1960s-style Brutalist architecture. It was also raining too. It was awesome 🙂

Well, after two failed attempts at making a 1980s-style painting, I eventually decided to make a small digitally-edited still life painting of a bottle of nail varnish that happened to be sitting on my desk.

However, I also ended up using a ridiculous amount of artistic licence when making this picture though (mostly since I wanted to create a complimentary colour scheme in the painting – since the actual nail varnish itself was black rather than purple/dark pink. Likewise, for time reasons, I used a much more minimalist background etc…).

Well, I was a bit more inspired (and awake) than I was when I made yesterday’s painting.

The interesting thing about this digitally-edited painting was that it was originally going to be either a film noir or a cyberpunk painting, but it ended up turning into more of a 1970s/1980s sci-fi painting for some reason (my decision to use a blue and brown colour scheme probably had something to do with it). Plus, for compositional reasons, I ended up cropping this picture to a slightly smaller size than usual whilst editing it.

Well, despite a ludicrous amount of digital editing, today’s painting didn’t really turn out as well as I’d hoped. Originally, it was going to be a 1990s-style painting, and then it turned into a painting of a large outdoor area – but the background really didn’t look that great, so I had to reduce it sigificantly before adding paint. Even after that, this picture still required a lot of extra digital editing.
