7 Day Gimp Challenge- Day 3

August 25, 2013



I’ve been bad about updating my posts for the Gimp challenge, mostly because I’d rather work on my pictures than post them online. So… here’s day three!

I was really mad my first original painting in Gimp 2.8 didn’t look the way I wanted it to, so I decided to try to paint more original pictures before I began to figure out how to add backgrounds, layers, ect. I didn’t want to draw more people, so I painted a still life.

The reference for my still life was some of the books and a spool of tulle that was sitting near my computer.

This is how it turned out….

still life cThis painting is the first still life I ever painted digitally and ever did in color. It was hard, mostly because I wasn’t using a pencil or paper, but I’m glad I did it. I learned a lot! I’ll probably do more of them in the future, but for now this is the only still life in color and/or painted digitally I’ve done. :)
