|What new techniques have you been experimenting with lately?
Using digital tools to make a cleaner image.
still the usual, pencils, trying to color digitally though.
I am working on a graphic novel and mainly use pen, ink and brush, and qouache. The challenge has been to make tactile, textured black & white characters jump out from the page. To solve this problem I have filled the backgrounds with colour.
Acetone Transfer. On claybord. I love it.
Directly scanning in my pencils and then just tweaking them in Adobe Photoshop, so far it's a work in progress. I'm also trying to make that jump into digital painting.
I've been perfecting rather than experimenting, making my process faster and more efficient.
I've been working with different ink washes and toned paper lately.
Oils..... worked with pastels for decades, I can do it in my sleep.
A combination of 3d and hand painting(in photoshop) heavily overlayed with photographic detail and scanned textures.
I've been working with oil and mixed media more and more and less digital. My work is more drawing than painting, so I've been experimenting on exactly how to bring my pieces to finish.
Spraypaint on metal using frisket paper
Woodstain on canvass
Lately I have been adding dramatic and heavy shadows, helping to add depth of composition and shape of forms.
Vectorizing my work, I find having things in vector print a whole lot nicer. But at a cost of loosing that real hand done touch. So I've been playing with new ways to mix the two.
I have been lately been tea staining my art, and painting with a Chinese calligraphy brush.
