A digital manipulation of a life drawing sketch.


sci fi, man, nude

self taught, figurative, major themes dance, horses & other animals,women, nudes. Best critique “you know you’re getting better” last year my mum.
Art is art, any method, media or medium or process is valid (well maybe not metalic nudes on black velvet or dogs playing poker) David Hockney embraces his Ipad paint app & emails creations to friends. Like to be on that mailing list.
Motto: Remember the best remedy for anti-aging is death, Burgundy before Botox

    wow. that really packs a punch. powerful Karen. i a;ways love the restatement of the line work .. feeling out the form – this is vibrating with energy. Great job!! :))

  • I was taking photos of life drawings for future reference (and to recycle tons of paper) – this one came out very light – so was messing around on PS with exposure to darken lines when it just popped – I do love PS

  • Thanks Ken – yes electric works, I like that kinda sci fi sizzle I can hear :-)
