Following on …

from my first attempts in April, I have been hard at work, practising drawing and painting and experimenting with different painting programmes. At the moment I am not interested in manipulating photos or pictures. I want to be able to draw my own work, and then perhaps manipulate it, as in designs for greeting cards or collage. The design part is fun too, but I think my priority is learning the basics of drawing, straight forward (if there is such a thing) representational work.  I have several programmes that I use frequently, and others not so often, and I suspect different programes suit different peoples needs. The programme I use the most is Artrage 2, which, although not perfect is brilliant for someone like me who is learning to draw. The fact that you can undo and erase numerous times means you learn more efficiently, and you don’t get through so many forests!

Here are the sites I use and their links.
