"Here's My Heart"
|This image began with a random shape,
originally a puzzle piece, reshaped with Painter's Shape editing tools,
enlarged, filled and stroked with black, then saved as a GIF to be used
by members at TutorAlley Forums.
After painting the shape first with
Pastel variants, then with a bristly Water Color variant,
Lots could be improved here, but it was fun, and I found a couple of new twists on these techniques I'd like to use again (if I can remember them!).
It's the first time in ages I've
been able to stop long enough to play and I can tell you.. it's a good
thing! Feel like I've been on a long vacation. Aren't we the lucky ones,
to have art interwoven into our lives!
