A few weeks back I started a new position doing photographic restoration and painting. As a side-kick or incentive for me to accept the position a new course was also offered to me and I took the job with pleasure just so I could do the course.
I know Photoshop, in fact I know it backwards, but this course isn't about Photoshop, it's about mixed media and the way we as artists think. In my not so humble opinion I feel the print on demand work can have an artist trying to please his or her public rather than do what he or she would love to do, or feels within.
At the moment I adore the Vintage Style Art, but I sure am doing it because I love it and not to please any customers. If they are pleased and like it, that is simply an added bonus to enjoy.
So here is my week+ worth of work whilst not creating, or setting out to create just "pretty pictures".
I think you get the idea, right? I thought so. If you happen to want to see a larger version please click on the images :)
