So I dragged out my trusty Wacom Intuos tablet and assembled a few Photoshop brushes. Watercolor, impasto, wet sloppy oil. Sometimes I like to lay my camera down for a season and let the colors roll across my Mac like paint dribbles.
There’s something about painting with a digital tablet that reminds me of fishing.
It empties the mind of anything that takes analytical thought. It fires up the creative juices. And it makes me feel a little (excuse the non-delicate term) artsy-fartsy.
I’m a lover of color and swishy marks. I like letting the stylus dance across the tablet while layers of color and shape take their places on the screen above.
Here’s the first – “Outside Looking In”:
…and here is one I completed today – “Tidepool”.
What do YOU do for a break from the routine? Which creative niches speak most to you?
