Digitally yours

Been playing with digital images a lot. I’m doing a book cover for a friend’s book. Will post more images of the book when/if I manage to come up with something publishable; and probably when it’s the right time to publicize it. But in the meantime, I successfully procrastinate, and end up doing more and more digital sketches that are irrelevant to the book project. But I guess they got "A Possible Sunris-ish" flavor. I will be using them when I plan those compositions.

And if you wonder how on earth these photographic images provide a foundation for my abrsract compositions, have a look at this. It’s a detail of my most recent finished painting :)

Kitchen Abstraction :-)

I’ve been making some digital sketches. Making a digital sketch is the easiest/fastest way to get the compositions right if you’re in a perfectionist mood.

Images I took for these sketches looked nice as photos too. Thought it’s ok to share them here :-)

I’ll be back with a painting.(Pardon me if I take too long to come back; cricket should be blamed for that)

Digitalized and iconized!!!

I get really fascinated by the accidental yet extremely creative things happen when I rework my paintings in digital medium. Sometimes I paint halfway and then start reworking it with Corel Photo Paint (Yes, I don’t use Photoshop that much). Then I stumble upon some magical effects, fall in love with the new version. Then this new digital work becomes a sketch for a new painting. Sometimes I do my sketches with Photo Paint in the first place and then get on with my “real” palette. Here are some of my digitalized work. They are mere sketches but I really love those effects. Both belong to a series of paintings called split screen. Some completed work from that series are available on my website.

And the digital version of the second drawing is now being used as a userpic by lisalemonjello (with my permission of course) with whom I signed a milion dollar contract to grant the rights to use it as an icon. And wow, it looks so beautiful as an icon too. Ok I understand, you had enough of my boasting, so I better shut up.
