Phone Paintings






These small digital doodles were all done while I was on the phone in either Artrage or Sketchbook Pro. A couple of them got a boost in Photoshop after I hung up. The red mountains and forest one was done while glancing at a photo in a book that happens to be next to my desk.

I certainly don't mind a long conversation, but I'd feel guilty if I wasn't productive in some way, so if I am near my computer, I might open up some new or rarely used software to see how it feels and hopefully learn a few things. Otherwise, I will typically sketch with a pencil while talking on the sofa.

Needless to say, these pieces aren't destined for any museums anytime soon, and because they are so rough and absentminded, I hesitated to show them at all, but I do like the clouds with the red birds; that's the result of swirling around the brush in Artrage with some heavy paint.

More proper drawings soon.

They are still gorgeous to me, Joshua. I love the sand scape with the solitary figure.

Sorry I don't have blog.

But I have to say that I found funny the name you gave to the "green forest and mountains" paiting!

It's good that when people think about my country they still can see nature.
