Body Painting – Artist Carnival

6 08 2011

I haven’t posted for a while but I thought I would at least brag about a recent success.   About two weeks ago I attended an artist festival for body painting at Club 220 in Denver as a photographer.   Body painting is an interesting art form in that it pulls together at least three separate artist, the model, the body painter and the photographer.   The results though can be fascinating.   For example, the below image was my favorite piece, and in it I combined both my photography and a virtual photo I’ve had lying around my hard drive for a couple of years just waiting for a good use…

The event had a competition in which people on the internet voted for their favorite.    The following image won 3rd place…

And now for the brag, this final image won 1st Place!!!!!!!!!!!

The Body as Canvas

26 11 2010

I attended a great art event last week in which models, body painters, photographers, and myself worked together to create body art.   It was a great stretch for myself and I thought I’d share a few of my pieces…

 

 

 





Learning from others

18 11 2010

The other night I attended an excellent presentation at the Evergreen Artist Association given by Peggy Morgan Stenmark where she demonstrated her ink reduction techniques.   Now, I’m a digital artist so one might ask, to what value was the demonstration?   I actually found it to be of great value as I’m going to show below.

Some of my art has a distinctly watercolor look.   Now I do some edging in my pieces, I normally keep that edging subtle.   For example, below is a piece I did a couple of weeks ago.

Now Peggy’s reduction techniques hugely stress black ink edgings.  I was afraid to go in that direction but after I saw her work and technique I decided to apply something similar to my digital work.    The result is below, and I think it is a better piece.

My point here is that one does not have to be working in the same media as a presenter  to learn from them.
