Oil Painting using Technological Help

I took a quick shot of the painting, inserted it into the Sketchbook Pro program, and then simply painted a version of green I was thinking about painting the background.

I took a quick shot of the painting Releasing while it was in process.  Inserting it into Sketchbook Pro I laid in a version of green I was considering.

I have created works that I’ve shown you here using a program called Sketchbook Pro on an I-Pad.  A studio mate of my buddy Dan in Southern California uses the program to help him figure out color combinations when he is at home and away from the studio.  I decided to put the tool to use doing the same when I recently was trying to figure out what color to paint the background for the work Releasing.

The red you see is actually the original under-painting.  I wanted to make sure I kept it in mind when figuring out what to layer over it.

Trying yet another version…

I thought maybe a darker blue, or tennebristic effect could be interesting.

And the final painting:

The final piece Releasing 14"x11" (This is just a quick studio shot of the painting) You can see I chose to go with the lighter blue. I felt it added a "lightness" and breath to the work. This figure should look familiar.  There is an earlier blog post that he is featured in.

    As I scrolled down the page on the screen, I immediately thought the light blue was best choice. Obviously, I was right 🙂

    Thanks for sharing your process, Tim!
