PostSubject: My new painting on Global Warming   Sat May 12, 2007 10:34 pm

It's been a while since I've done any paintings and lately I've been inspired by certain people to do a painting on Global Warming.

The painting is called 'Global Warming' and I have put it on Gallery One on 'My Art Gallery'. Click on the thumbnail and it will take you to the painting in my Gallery.

Albert, have you ever written small tutorials about how to do paintings
like this? you know, step by step? I'd be really interested to see how
you go about doing a painting. I've written a lot of tutorials on how
to use PhotoImpact and it's fun writing them, let alone using them.

rar, I always want to do this painting since I became aware of global warming. I had no idea how I'd do it or what subject matter I would include.

Then out of the blue, on Saturday I was lying in bed and the subject matter came to me. All of it like a clear picture in my mind. I don't think this has happened before. I constructed the painting all in my mind then set about doing it.

I divided the painting in two......the upper and the lower.
Naturally I used Photoshop and for the upper part I used the Gradient tool and selected yellow and red.....and using the radial gradient option , made the sky and sun.

For the bottom I selected linear gradient with 2 shades of yellow.,,,,,,,,,that took care of the background.

The rest I used the brush too and drew everything by hand , ie;..."mouse'.
except for the American flag which I cut and pasted and distorted a bit to look ragged and torn.

To highlight shadows and sun light , I used the burn and dodge tool.

I didn't use any fancy tools that a beginner would not know how to use.

Some of my other paintings on my Art Gallery are so complex to do that even I don't remember how I did them.

anyhow , I joined Deaviant Art today from a suggestion from a member from a Photoshop Forum I'm on, and while I was there I saw this bit of art.

Albert, that's fantastic - thanks for letting me know how you did it.
I've nabbed your suggestions and will have a go at your method - It's
very simple and I sure appreciate that.

I'm on deviantart too - I'll email you here on polly with my name so
you can check out my stuff. Let me know your ID too if you like - then
I can comment on your work too. My two sons are on there as well...

Hey, I love that destroying image...doesn't that just say it all...

rar.......gald to are going to give it a go. Thumbs up

I'm Sellaman on DeviantArt and Sellaman on Artabus. It's a French site , and so is my forum. Polly is given to me by a French Company. I'm also Sellaman on Artabus.

I'll check out your stuff on DeviantArt but I've probably seen all your art from your web site which I have bookmarked.

Anyhow getting back on topic this is what Howard thinks of global warming.......you can see it on the expression of his face.
Pretty horrible ,,isn't it! fear

rar, I got it from an Australian site called Xenoxnews.

It's a very crude site but most of the members are very cluey and very funny. I can usually find information on Australian politics there that I can't find any where else.
