I am not sure how I feel about digital paintings.  What is the purpose to take a photo and reproduce it on the computer with a digital drawing program that gives you "layers" to work your magic with.  It's more of a skill to me that actual painting medium is.  How do you feel about it?

Nothing can really take the place of a pencil. pen, or paintbrush.

I know it is the end of August, but I'm thinking of the autumn colors already.

A Work in Progress.
Oil Portrait of 3 little couch potatoes that I call "Tatertots"
I am trying to capture the way the sunlight shines on the children and on the couch.  Not such as easy task.  I am working in transparent layers, just to make it interesting.  I have not yet finished any of the boys faces or hands.  I'm leaving that for last. It is a sweet photo that my daughter took of her little boys and their friend.  I just had to paint it.  Wish me luck.,

Finally done with my "Comfy Couch" oil portrait.  Sorry,I take lousy photos of my work.  I have to use a tripod next time so I can make sure it is level.  It always looks like it is through the camera, but then when I crop it, the truth comes out.

All done with this one.  The frame works beautifully with the setting.

Even though it is framed, I am still working on it.  Just some fine tuning to do on their faces.  This has been a very hard one.

Day 3 of work on this oil painting
I am working on adding some foreground buds and bugs.  It feels done but I will wait a couple of days to see what I don't see today.

I'm working on the foreground tree and the brush.

I'm trying to capture the way the light plays on the couch, added some muted colors and am now working on the children with focus on the child on the left, giving him more light and color.  I have not done the faces of the boys on the right yet. Still more work to do on the couch, but I will be done soon.
