Testing fanbrush on canvas

I have a canvas that is damaged. Thought I use it for practising different brushes. The work above is only a part of that canvas.
This week I tested to use the fanbrush. Seem to me I have a lot of more practising to do. The major problem seem to be the thickness of the color and the preparation of the canvas. I can´t get it to "flow" the way I see them doing in videos. As a fantasy I kind of like it anyway.

This is a combination of two images and a lot of photoshopping.
The Exibition went well and I sold 4 posters. But for the moment I feel drained so I am back to photoshop again for a while.

 One day I was visted by a little girl . I had my black carbon paper with me so she was my "student" for a while.  Myself I created the twigs. Both of us worked with white gel pens.

I bought myself a UV lightbulb. Wanted to try something new. Some images became quite cool. For this one I made a copy of the layer and turned it 180deg. Then a blending of the two images created this one. It is an image of 2 faded Hibiscus blooms.

I have been busy with the Exhibition at the Library this week. My art seem to invite people to chat. But I have only sold one. But it is fun. :) 

The pieces in the monter is memories from my first trip to Yellowstone and the lower shelf is some of the acorns experiment.

Paint pull and physalis

The wave

Physalis

This kind of painting is quite interesting to me. I was only about to paint one canvas in black. The purpose was to try out how to use fan brushes. I ended up with four canvases in black and white :) The two shared above I will bring to the Exhibition I start Monday. Hopefully somebody want to buy them. My walls are full again.

I DID do the black canvas yesterday :)

The Wave is actually black and white, the blue tone comes from the camera as it was a grey day. Camera settings White Balance like to do that. I like it so I keep the color in the photo.

The Physalis is a photo with some light edits.
