Creating Changes Rules
Self Portrait – digital art – finger painting – Dan Beck November 2007
I have not been writing much – rather formulating some next moves – next art – next music projects. Too much of the blogging time, we write just to write – to bring attention to our work or simply share into cyberspace.
Whether I am able or not – my hope from here is to write when it is right – when I have something new to share.
My previous self-portrait done earlier this year was done the way I do most of my work – from my head with some tweaking from visual inspection (when available).
This self portrait – also an exercise – of how well can I paint with my fingers? utilized the camera of my new laptop.
I don’t really like the idea of painting from a photo – seems a step removed to me – but I couldn’t resist the technology. And although it is a perfectly acceptable practice in digital art to paint and alter a photograph – that is not the tact I took here – just used it as a model.
