@ jim100361 - Thanks for the illustration. Thought you were referring to the over all shadow...

Looks like it might be easier to start from scratch then to futz with the existing wrench.

Good eye jim, thanks.

Double Post: New Piece -

Had to try out welshblue's wood tutorial and of course throw in a marble, 'cause I like marbles.

correct spelling

Helen, you are wicked. Yep, doable...hint - Galaxy tute is a good start.

Lovely texture in the wood & a great warm colour & shine to the wood. What I'd like to see is the marble even glossier, hence the hint to direct you to the Galaxy tute since it has a great way to do the shine or even one of the glass ball tutes like this

But again the texture is amazingly good on the wood. Well done!

Agreed that you've created awesome tones to the wood. A really nice idea adding a marble into the groove. I hope you take up Helen's challenge, a see through marble wood look excellent on there ( a clever idea from Barbie' to use the galaxy tut')

@ jim100361 - Thank you.

@ HELEN - Oh, that's a great idea! Thanks. Even though my first attempt at your glossy galaxy ball tute sucked sewage water,

I accept your challenge. Yep... Got me some practicing to do.

@barbieq25 - Much obliged to you for the tutorial hints. You know, I think you're right about the marble needing more gloss. It's interesting how easily some details get over looked while staring at your drawing for hours on end. Anyway, thanks for the accolades.

@welshblue - Yes, Helen's challenge is a great idea. A see through marble would be like... Most Excellent! Thanks for your positive input.

Jaxon, I like the colours you used in this. The shapes & flow remind me of Dali's work. I really like it a lot esp, the red/orange part & how you've put a space image in the background. Very cool.

Thanks barbieq - Salvador Dali created some really beautiful and interesting art. Appreciate the art history lesson and glad you like this piece.

That's a really great abstract. It reminds me of paints in a palette all mixed together. Very nice! I can't wait to see your next piece.

Great textures ... and a great choice of colours. Abstracts aren't always easy, but a fitting image to a great title

I only pretend to listen to my wife, she's my harshest critic but shes got the art qualification. So I've got to show willing ...

My hubby has quals in art too as well as teaching. He told me that once you know the rules you can break them. I think I missed a step :lol:

Hmmm...I listen but not always. He also said that art is a journey that is personal & selfish by necessity. Very true.

Finger painting - now that is definitely not easy to do with PDN. Like an oxymoron.

:lol: You have to know what the rules are so that when you break them you know that you have broken a rule (or 3 or 4) & which ones... :lol:

Welshy, what would be the fun of breaking rules that you didn't know you were breaking? :PB) B) :lol:

Funny you'd mention that since that's how I describe the stag I'm in with my use of PDN right now ... If I had a touch pad I think I would have done it to some degree already just to make that claim ...
:mrgreen:

@Jaxon: Love the abstract and the marble works. Great use of tutorial mash-ups. Thanks for sharing them.

My apologies for not responding sooner - got side tracked with work, the honey-do list and a selfish personal journey with PDN. :/

(1.) Thanks Welsh - Your time devoted to this forum is most appreciated. :star: :star: :star: :star:

(2.) I'm still my worst critic in my attempts at art, but when it comes to wordsmithing my wife has the qualifications. So it sounds like your art will keep improving

as will my writing, wether I want it to or not. :|

(1.) Up till now I've always felt the rules of art are antiquated and would interfere with an artists creative freedom. The online research I've done so far has caused

me to rethink my position. Looks like I need to learn these rules so I can feel extra wicked when I break them. Your time devoted to this forum is most appreciated as well barbieq. :star: :star: :star: :star:

(2.) Admittedly my wife's finger painting remark torqued my jaws a bit. After thinking about it for awhile, I came to the conclusion that technically she is right. I use a mouse and keyboard... So yes, I like to create finger paintings on my computer. You got a problem with that? :lol: :lol:

You're welcome delpart and thanks for taking the time to check out my gallery of finger paintings. :D

Art by its very nature is necessarily selfish. Never feel bad about any time you spend in artistic endeavours.

My pleasure to be in your company B)

I think you do shiny really well... I know that sounds goofy. :P

Purple Globe is my favorite - I like the glassy look of it.

Your marbles (both pics) look like some of the old ones I have.

Puzzle Box is just lovely.

Very nice collection - let's see more.

@ barbieq - Once again thank you; the feeling is mutual. :D:wine:

@ doughty -

It doesn't sound goofy at all, it sounds like a very nice compliment. For that, I thank you. B)

Appreciate you stopping by and glad you found a favorite. :)
