Well, this is what I am doing on the side when not painting. I thought that you might be interested in this. Painting without the 'mess', and in this case, inside !
These pieces were drawn on a "computer tablet with an electronic pen". This particular piece was drawn with the coloured pencil medium. Some areas were then blended with the electronic palette knife. Any medium may be selected.
The learning curve was steep at first but began to level out with more practice. I think much more practice is needed...
This is a caricature of Michael Ignatieff. Not a familiar face to most. He is the leader of the Federal Liberal Party of Canada, which is the official opposition to the ruling Conservative Government. In some circles he is also known as "Iggy".
The medium for this was blended pencil and crayon.
Did I mention that the first caricature was my attempt at Barack Obama ?...Guess not.
