Nancy, Photomaster

Nancy, yours is the watercolour technique I admire. I'd very much like to read more on your procedures.

Photomaster, I too have spent a lot of time with Deep Paint, and have discovered what you have so fully described (Your post ought to have a "sticky" label slapped on it and placed in the *Tutorials* forum. It would be very helpful for those trying to use the app.) What I can't figure out is the relationship of the "Clone" tab in the upper left of the workspace, and the "Paint" tab right next to it. The instructions get you cloning under "Paint" exactly as you have stated; but what's the use of the "Clone" tab with its specially-loaded brushes? You can set out to clone more quickly under the "Clone" tab, to be sure, but the brushes generate an image more like the photo than a painting. If you want painterly strokes, you have to go to the "Paint" tab and tick "artistic", just as if you had begun under this tab. I suspect there's a feature or two under the "Clone" tab that I can't winkle out, but the instructions are no help. Have you uncovered any secrets hidden under the "Clone" tab?

Craig, I love it. Its beautiful, its like the first rain of spring bit from Bambi and christmas morning all rolled into one There are a few scanlines in the darker tones but they're hardly noticeable.

I'm probably one of the guilty ones there WHat I dislike more, it those that produce the same picture over and over, as talented as they may be and as stunning as the end result, there is a certain predictability about some peoples work, while theres nothing wrong with having a style you're good at and sticking to it, it seems to me theres little need to share it, you've already demonstrated your ability to reproduce x effect.

At school I rarely did as I was told or what I was supposed to and I always had her saying 'how did you do that?' Well I just picked up the paint/pencils and just did it. Its the way I am. But I think at school you're supposed to follow the rules, they teach you that you have to know the rules first in order to break them. A lot of abstract and expressionists can give the impression that they cant paint, if you want to go down that route and be respected as an artist you generally have to first prove that you can draw and paint and that its a stylistic choice rather than a lack of ability.
One of my favorite exam pieces was a silkscreen painting, because I never listened or paid attention I just did what seemed to make sense to me and totally confounded my teacher. With silkscreen we were supposed to draw the outline in some stuff, I think it was called gutta or something like that, anyway then you were supposed to fill in the shapes with blocks of colour using the silk paints. Ofcourse, I didnt know that, I drew the outline then painted it like a watercolour, mixing the paint on the silk and building up layers of colour and shades, it was a very special piece. I guess sometimes not know the rules can be an advantage

The age old question, I dont think there is an answer. A more poignant question, I tihnk, is what is photo-based art? Where do we draw the line between photo-manip, retoucing and photo art?

PM, at this point, i dont care if they're square but, as i used to tell others, go out and look

nancy,

Craig, I love it. Its beautiful,
thank you thank you for the compliment and thank you for pushing me to it. and thank you for being honest. i value these things.

hehehe, this surprises me not at all. it's the true artists, the good ones, who refuse to always paint within the lines, and normally who could teach the teachers a thing or two and i love hearing bits like this about people here. the silk screen one also

and palms,

i view this whole process between nancy and i more of a coming together of views. i'm wildly undisciplined, overly casual, unschooled and often times downright lazy. nancy strikes me as more of a traiditional style, much more disciplined and having more form and structure. this process, for me, has been more of a trying to see another view, another way, nancy's way, while at the same time conveying something about my way that maybe she could grab onto or had possibly even given up partitially and might want to revisit. so, to me, it's more about breaking our own little boundaries, just a smidgen, and looking at something outside of that. i've learned from nancy here and that's not always easy for me
