Garden Smoke

Garden Smoke - Digital painting by Mark WallisThe hidden painter inside me often collides with pixels. For an artist, I’m more likely to be messing around with iPad apps than actually throwing paint at a canvas. And graphic design is so clean since the world went digital. Rather than pay a fortune for Photoshop or Illustrator, the designers amongst us can download a painting app for nothing. Grab a stylus and you can create a work of art on the tram, or in the bath. I’ve rendered some of my more colourful photographs as digital paintings and this is the first example. There’s no magic button: you do actually have to paint, but you don’t have to get your hands dirty.

    • Thanks, Nessy. It’s a work in progress – I think the next step is to do a real oil painting….

Let me know what you think...
