Tango

I'm dancing my way into digital... [sorry - couldn't resist] I still can't quite get my head around it, but it's good fun trying. It's even better knowing you don't have to clean up after yourself :)

p.s. For anyone that's been following - sorry I've been away so long!

Some of you might recognise this image from a few weeks ago, in which case you'll see that I've shamelessly squashed it into this week's IF topic - please, I beg your forgiveness. I actually took on a new identity of late, one that forced my drawings into the back seat; for the last few weeks I have been 'Kirstie the brave,' a pale-faced island explorer on a mission to enjoy sun, sand and sea...

You'll be pleased to hear the voyage was a great success.. and a thousand freckles and two sore shoulders later, I'm back.

Hope you're all having a great summer.
Look out for more updates soon!
All the best, K

  2. Yes it is! I've found it so much easier to get into than photoshop, for painting anyway - it's so intuitive. Painter's great :-)

  12. welcome to digital. i personally am a drawer, always will be. i refuse to do the actual drawing with anything other than a pen of some sort. but i've discovered so much joy in moving my sketchbook work into the world of photoshop for playing with color and refining. anyway, i love your work, however it's executed. thanks.
