The word salvage came mind â€“ it seemed like a pile of old stuff. This is a distorted glimpse in a direction I want to follow, but only a glimpse. I was experimenting with â€œDeep Paintâ€ which is dramatic in how it handles light and relief in the strokes. However adding light to create pseudo relief to a flat surface is one of the fake aspects of the digital work I donâ€™t like. Many of my sketches have it, and it does seem to work in some ways. Perhaps I should get over it? But no, I think I will avoid it from here on.
Deep paint creates layers which it uses to build the relief. Below in this post are three used to create this one. I almost prefer each layer in its own right.
When I say a glimpse, it is because one day I will do large abstract, colourful, rich oils, they will have relief, this a sketch!
