P.I.B. ...painted #1

Okay, not my best, I know. But I'm doing a bit of an experiment this week... I'm going to paint this drawing everyday for an hour (or less). I know I can paint okay if I spend days on a painting or use some sort of trick, like leaving the lines in on a multiply layer, but I want to be more confident with strait up digital painting. I think the fact that I consider it to be one of my weaknesses is why I generally fail at it.

I had the idea of doing something like that to.. but never did..
maybe now is the time to do it!

Really nice. Love all your designs.
And good idea, though your sense of design and color are awesome.
If you don't mind, I'll link you :)

YAY!
Sarah is painting!
I think you are off to a fantastic start.
Love the colors.

I too am scared of painting, but I have heard it doesn't bite.

I hated painting in art school, but now with Photoshop and the ability to keep trying until I get it right (with the handy "multiple undo" function), it's gotten much less scary.

Now if I could only losen up my purse strings and pop for a decent tablet. Mouse painting is like threading a needle wearing mittens.

Great P.I.B., by the way. Looks great to me!

This should be a cool exercise trying a new technique everyday! Let us know how you attack each one, if you can.

It's looking great so far Sarah. Keep building on it! I'm on the same page as you with this method of learning, too: just jump in and teach yourself how to swim :)
