This blog post is a little break away from the usual photography. In January I started to attend an 8-week painting class run as part of the Edinburgh Adult Learning programme. It has really motivated me to start drawing as well as to begin to learn how to use watercolours. There are so many forms of art that I enjoy, but browsing on Pinterest has particularly sparked by interest in exploring a more illustrative style. This weekend (with the help from James) I’ve been getting to grips with using Photoshop to digitally colour images. These two images are my first attempts and I’m pretty happy with them. All of the line work is my own, then I’ve used patterns and brushes to add to the image. It’s all a bit of an experiment at the moment so let me know what you think!
