For Inspire Me Thursday's Show and Tell


For Inspire Me Thursday’s “Show and Tell”: Title: If I made pottery!!. I had just seen some delightful black and white pottery at the Webster Groves Art and Air Artfair last weekend and I was thinking about how I love the energetic exciting whimzical patterns and motifs used by many pottery artists. SO, if I made pottery it would be whimzical too. This is a digital drawing made in Painter 9 using the gouache brushes and some of my own pattern fills. To make my own pattern fills in Painter 9 I start with a 100 x 100 pixel canvas, make the pattern on one layer only, select the layer and then choose capture pattern. I often make several patterns and use them as a pattern fill or on a pattern pen. If I put a black and white pattern on a gel layer, the white becomes transparent and I can add color on a layer beneath it. Below is another picture “ Oreo Overdose” made with a number of my own pattern fills created in Painter 9.

I really like your two images..the bold lines and patterns along with your color choices make for appealing pieces. Oreo Overdose is pretty funny too - I can totally relate after a good chocolate fix...

Wow! This really pops! I am so impressed by you folks who create such amazing art in Painter. I have Painter as well, but the few times I've tried to paint something, I've become very intimidated and discouraged. I'm pretty comfortable with Photoshop and Illustrator, but painter is a whole other thing... So kudos to you! I really like the dominant balck and white here, and I like the colors you've used to set it off. Your oreo overdose has some very jazzy patterns! Great suff:>

Thanks for the kind info the other day, I really appreciated it. The new work is just great, but I have to admit, I have a soft spot for the ore overdose. Wicked sense of wit! Keep it up.
