Digital Art work – A December Sunset – Callan, county Kilkenny
A December Sunset – Callan, county Kilkenny
Often when out for an evening walk at this time of year the sunsets across our local fields can be just amazing to view, the sun is low in the sky all day long in December when compared to a mid summers day. With out getting to detailed this changes the angle of the sun and it seems to make the last few moments of day light last longer. This along with the mist and early frosts that can sit of the fields, haging above the hedgerows is just great to see 🙂
This painting is created using a PC application called mypaint, I have spent the last few weeks doing my best to get up to speed with how to make the best use of it, at first just using some of the drawing tools and ink pens but as you can see – I hope that I am now getting more use to the painting and colour tools..
The paint is posted the moment I feel its finished , I very much like the idea of this as it helps me to close the processes involved and to stop me coming back and over working anything. Its a little hard to describe but its a great feeling to start and finish a painting in one session and then be able to learn when you feel that you have finished !!!
Beautiful job it looks amazing

Absolutely! Wish I had your basic skills to build up from.

I am a big believe that we all have skills to be creative, your posts and your blog show yours 🙂 🙂
I think art is about self expression and not about any kind of ideal, category or level !!!!
You would love just having a go and learning I know you would, there are so many ways to produce art that I just know you would find an area you love and can be great at – Go on have a go !!!
There are no mistakes just learn processes 🙂 🙂 🙂

Oh I’m not saying that I don’t try and try hard but I think there are some key skills, especially in relation to art, that I need to learn and learn fast!

Love this. Callan is a place familiar to me. I often visit Westcourt, Callan. My Canon G12 got a workout there a few years ago on a beautiful morning with frost hanging from everything.
