Warm Up: A Walk to School

I’m experimenting, stepping away from the line work and using primarily paint (digital). This was done in Painter X with the digital watercolors.

    interesting… this has a nice soft feel to it. Just last night I was experimenting using color on only a pencil line… not my usual black ink outline. It looks different. I think I’ll try it some more.

    Wow! I love it, I was a bit wary when I read you were doing it without your lovely lines but this really works well. Do I see a new style for you emerging after all this time ;)

    Looks like a terrific Paula Becker original to me. I wouldn’t even have noticed the line work was missing. Sweet!

    Wow…So many comments! And all so helpful!

    Doug: Can we see? What your doing sounds interesting!

    Jess: Thank you! I was a bit surprised by the outcome (this was the second of two I did). I’m always experimenting, trying something and then abandoning the style. If it gets too be too fussy to do, I don’t like it. Yes, this might be a different style I can glom onto. We shall see. : )

    MRB: I’m amazed you see my style in there (as Stacy said, too). So we’ll see if the other pieces do so as well. I feel I can play with color and perspective more with this style, both which I tend to not be too creative with.

    Jazz: Hmmm!
