Although I don't do a lot of digital painting, sometimes I like to play around with it and see what I can produce. It saves me hauling out paints and brushes and satisfies the lazy part of me. I have a number of paintings in my head and that can lead to overwhelm so often a little study here and there keeps the craving in check until I get a piece underway.
This little study is in oils. I liked the effect of the light through the glass marbles and tried to capture it. I love drawing glass but haven't painted it much. I need to follow through now and put some on canvas. This also appeals to me as a drawing or pen and ink piece. The beauty of creating digital art is the flexibility of changing mediums and doing studies. Just another tool to help the process of composition, colour and technique.
