“Hold fast to dreams for if dreams die,
life is a broken winged bird that cannot fly.” ~Langston Hughes
Digital painting first painted in Photoshop, then brought into Twisted Brush for stroke details using a liquid brush. Image then brought back into Photoshop, combined with four background layers, painting duplicated twice, all layers adjusted for color and opacity. Image flattened for presentation.
Inspired bu the Nouveau cartoon “The Pelican” created by Edward-Burne-Jones for a stained glass window to be produced by Morris and Company…circa end 19th century.

love like you’ve never been hurt,
dance like nobody’s watching,
and live like its heaven on earth.”

    Wow! Wonderful work. What is “Twisted Brush”? Dee

  • Hi Dee, Twisted Brush is a design and paint program, free or paid, depending..brushes available seperately, this was done with 3D liquid brushes! I love the program but always end up back in PS at the end! It is put out by Pixarra
