Psychedelic Dream - Abstract Art by 

3276 views as of October 23, 2010

Featured in Digital Artists United September 5, 2009 and in Dimensions Sept. 13, 2009.

A psychedelic experience is characterized by the perception of aspects of one’s mind previously unknown, or by the creative exuberance of the mind liberated from its ostensibly ordinary fetters. Psychedelic states are an array of experiences elicited by sensory deprivation as well as by psychedelic substances.

I have to give credit to my DD for drawing the mouth for this piece. (She is 10 years old) I was having issues with it, she came into my studio, and asked if she could do it for me. God bless her sweet little heart. I left it just as it was! :)

Abstract painting created using several photographic layers, added textures, Photoshop, Painter X and a Wacom tablet. Original face & hair detail created from scratch in Corel Painter prior to adding photo & texture layers.

    oooo what FUN!!!!!!!! Glorious image … sooooo vibrant!!!! I love the color combinations!!!!!!!

  • Thank you very much Lois. This was another one of my sitting on the fence pieces. I have about 5 variations done and finally decided on this one. I have to give credit to my DD for drawing the mouth for this piece. I was having issues with it, she came into my studio, and asked if she could do it for me. God bless her sweet little heart. I left it just as it was (although some of the texture overlays faded it down a bit.)
