Art - Tips on Glass painting

Previous | Next 
Hello everyone!

      Today, I am posting about a glass painting. Glass paintings are vibrant and always add a shiny perspective to the space. These designs are mostly colours filled in outlines with lesser details. Glass paintings emphasise more on lines and colours rather than realism. The semi transparent colours reflect the background through them. Here I have used crushed aluminium foil. One may use any coloured or shiny material. Some also prefer to leave the glass transparent without any background and only frame.

Art - The three trees

Hello everyone!

            Digital art is a rapidly growing field. It is fast, easy and portable. Anyone can start drawing within few minutes. I have been working on adobe photoshop and illustrator for 4 years. I tried the adobe ideas app for iPad last month and found it very handy. Great art can be drawn by touching with finger or one can use stylus for better accuracy. The plus point is that it is easily convertible to vector format.  It took me only 5 minutes to create the following vector.



                I first created the black outlines using stylus and then filled colour in background layers. Layers are essentially helpful here. Hope you all liked it. Keep tuned for more. You may subscribe us via feed or email. Keep living your hobbies!
