It's been difficult to get real quality computer time lately. So more than ever I've been relying on traditional means of making art. This is cool because it's gotten me to try something I've wanted to for a long time: painting on wood. It's one of my favorite looks, I love when the wood grain shows through the image. It just gives it an extra dimension, makes it feel warmer and somehow more "real."
I've messed around with wood painting in the past, but not seriously or for any length of time. I have an attention problem. Something that makes me avoid sitting down and really working on a thing... Once I start, I'm happy, it's just before that that is difficult. There always seems to be something more fun to do...
Anyways, here is my first ever real attempt designing on wood. I found these pre made wooden blocks at the art shop. They just under an inch thick, so they stand on their own and don't warp the way wooden sheets from home depot sometimes do.
It's simply called "Feathers" and is done in graphite.
