The “Light Within” is the name of this digital painting. Each day I need to nourish that light within as I dance my way through life – balancing maintenance and creativity. Today I have gotten the code on this blog as well as I can for now. Please let me know if you have any problems with this blog.
Light Within, Digital Â© Diane Clancy
This frees me up to get back to other work. That light within is so important whether it is attention to close technical details or playing with paint spontaneously or figuring out what isn’t working with a painting or de-cluttering. In all these pursuits I must – to the best of my ability at the moment – align with and support that light within.
This image is made with KPT filters in Photoshop. There are several dozen layers in this image. (See the post – Creating â€œInside and Outâ€ – if you want more details on this layering process.) It often took an hour or more for each layer. So, you can see, an invloved process.
But fun! Changing the order of the layers, changes the look. Again, see the post listed above for more details. I put a black background to have the light vibrate. These layers of “light” look very different when there is a different color behind them.
My light within feels very nourished knowing that at least one person is reading what I am writing, looking at the images and following my creative process. I feel very blessed by my connections with those I have met.
