This is an example of a type of my digital painting that you haven’t seen yet. It is part of my design series that I created in the computer program Painter. I like the colors, flowers, and sense of Spring.
Flowers XVII, Digital Â© Diane Clancy
The creative process was fairly complicated – I started with vector clip art. I then brought the images into Painter and made nozzles out of them. The post Nature Reflections II talks about the difference between vector and bitmap images. The post Freckles in Flowers I discusses nozzles.
Once I made the flowers and such into nozzles, then I created the pattern. It is a 4-way repeat. Painter has cool tools so it is easier to get the corners to match up when repeating a pattern – using it more than once – in a seamless way. As with many thing, once I get the rhythm down, it is simple and easy. But then I have to relearn when I go to use this process again.
I really enjoy the colors and the sense of movement in this image. Several stores have bought this painting as a card to sell in their stores. I like looking at the flowers in this image – I think they are very interesting.
Thank you for looking and reading. In the comments there is a discussion started about licensing and more technical details about creating this kind of design.
