As of this posting and after 10 weeks of fighting digital drawing/painting I have nothing to say. Of course when I say that I blather on anyway.
The past week was almost a total reversal of last week, at least as far as my attitude is concerned. The drawing artist and the painting artist were able to work together. Neither artist attempted a takeover and both respected each others territory and expertise.
If you happen to be a first time reader or an occasional follower, then perhaps you are wondering what the heck I am talking about. Who are these two artists you speak of?
Within myself I have at least two inner artists (I’m thinking there may be more) struggling for artistic dominance. Those two artists are “drawing artist” and “painting artist”.
You can read more about them in these two previous posts.
As mentioned above the two personalities were well behaved. No squabbles, no rushing the drawing to get to the painting and generally a relaxing week of digital creation.
Strange thing though, nothing I did this week was terribly satisfying nor were there any feelings of wanting to give up. Several of the images turned out well enough while several were duds. I am completely ho hum about the results.
It appears my creative well is low or perhaps even empty. This usually means review time. As of this post I have completed 72 digital images. I have tasked myself with doing 100 digital drawing/paintings in a row (one-per-day). I think now would be a fine time to pick several images for review. The following images are the ones I liked or at least provided a springboard for new ideas and techniques.
Note: if you wish to see all 100 digital images you can start viewing them one day at a time starting Oct 18/21 on Instagram. Read about my dailies if you want to know why?
Digital Image Review
Hopefully you found one or two images that were interesting. Not only am I out of artistic energy, I am also low on blogging energy. I have a week to refill my tanks, talk at you then.
