I'm just working on a 'oil painting' done digitally with a palette knife! Not sure how long it's gonna take though. I will try get it done in the next 3 days or sooner if I've managed to get the techniques right! It's not gonna be a masterpiece. Just part of my learning curve!  :smart:

I finished this digital oil painting this eve! I chose to do it in a Impasto effect and I blurred out the background by manipulating the the paint pixel blends:

It's easy to see why some digital art can be mistaken for paintings. You're really getting on with this, well done Tony.  :clap: :clap: :clap:

 :thankyou:  for your reply compliments!  :1hug:


I'm already thinking about my next digital painting.
I like digital art in the way it spans all creativity. My test will be using it to create characters for my intended projects that are waiting on the shelf while I learned about this media. Creating figures/characters for illustration requires the skills learned here on Paint Basket as well as ones own imagination so, I look forward to using digital tools to help in this process. In the meantime, I'm going to do some more digital paintings like this Dahlia. Maybe a city scene next.
Back to work...

has the Dahlia been painted or was it a photo and then you manipulated it using the tools in the software?

Hi Nolan, I used squeezed tube paint from within the app that references colour from the photo. I then used the palette knife tool to blend. I started at the background where I blended more in order to blur. Then I started on the back petals in a circular manner and then continued into the forefront ones to the centre. I varied the tube paints thicknesses and the knife size. Quite easy really. When I create characters, it'll really test the digital functions.
