Whippet Digital Media
I have been experiencing quite a bit of frustration with my art lately and feel like nothing I do looks like I want it to. I think part of the problem is when I look at other artist's paintings. They always look so simple, but when I try I make an expensive mess. I keep piling up more and more unfinished painting because I don't have the confidence to finish them and risk "wasting" more art supplies on something that isn't headed in the right direction. To get out of the rut, I decided to do some easy studies in photoshop. Working with digital media is so much less frustrating to me because I have more control and don't have to worry about wasting anything other than my time haha. I am fairly satisfied with this one, but the more I look at it the more I want to open it back up in photoshop and mess with it more. I really need to invest in a timer and only paint until it goes off so I am not tempted to over-work everything.
