Wading to Be Found - Digital Art Painting - [steem] [blockchain] [art]

in #steem5 months ago

Digital Art on the Steem Blockchain

I hope everyone had a great weekend. Today I am posting a more simplified piece of artwork. I decided on doing something black and white, and more abstract. I again am using my Apple Ipad 6th Gen. with Pencil, and using Procreate as the drawing software. Within Procreate, there are many different types of "brushes" you can use when drawing or painting.

The different brushes in Procreate can resemble the lines of a sketching pencil, the smearing roughness of chalk, the creaminess of oil and the fine mist like spray of an air brushing tool. This ability to mix media without having to actually buy any supplies is truly revolutionary, in my opinion, for novice artists like myself that like to dabble in many types of media but don't have the resources, skill set or time to really get into using actual physical art media such as acrylic or oil painting or any of the many other types of art media.

I was fortunate to have bought my Apple Ipad on sale, and with a 0% interest for 1 year loan that I pay in $30 monthly installment payments. This has made it easy for me to purchase and experiment with the Apple Ipad. I mostly use it for when the urge to draw something comes about. In this painting, I had the desire to paint something simple and somewhat abstract. I really didn't know what I was going to paint, until after a few up and down strokes, I was reminded of a cattail in a marsh, and then the rest just fell into place.

I decided to play on the word "wading" in the title instead of the word "waiting," which is more of the typical use for this word in this type of sentence. No one usually "wades" in water to be found, unless of course you happen to be marsh cattails waiting for some geese to come down from the sky, and thus the word play and the title.

Thank you for stopping by my art gallery on STEEM!

Nice creation @streetstyle. The title is the mantra of many Minnows here ;)

So true @robertandrew It does take time, patience, and sometimes a little luck to get traction on Steem.

My son lost his mind when he saw this... He loves to mess around with his iPad... He doesn't have the other tools, but regardless... beautiful creation my friend...

Hi Wes, glad he like it... I think Procreate costs $10 bucks so it really is worth it. And it does come with all the brushes.... maybe you can show him a few others that i have done, with time lapse videos (from within Procreate as well).

ps I do think there are other free drawing but not sure of any in particular.

Thanks for being a part of this awesome community. Keep on doing what you are doing!

hi @tristancarax I guess there isn't much traction going as far as delegations, yet I do sense a wave of digruntled Steemians that have been down voted. I see mk311 even down voted me again too.... maybe for now tristan, you can up date me on those in a need of a counter down vote, and I will help support those with up votes.... then I can put the word out to the Steem Army and they might just show up to support them too.... what say you?

I simply go here on a regular basis --> https://steemworld.org/@mmmmkkkk311 and look at his DV trail.

I do wish this would pick up more people but most say that they don't care. I take it as most people don't stand up to bullies.

Thanks @tristancarax I actually started doing that before my post... then realized that it was taking away from this most important post so I stopped, but plan to continue supporting those that are down voted. Well at least those that I believe don't deserve it or at least I can reasonably assume aren't pushing some fraud or whack agenda.
Anyhow, I hope mk311 figures out he, they or however they view themselves, are not winning... in fact they are actually helping the SBI cause from what I can tell. I have heard some have left or aren't posting because of this but I still see many going on about as if nothing happened either, and as for me, every down vote furthers my resolve by either sending SBI to someone or upping my SBI stake....and if push comes to shove... I might just bring a bulldozer.... I hope it doesn't have to come to that.

Beautiful artwork

Who can't believe it is not a pencil drawing though its digital sketch, excellent idea.

Hi honey how have you been?

I love your work and that you have decided to do it in black and white gives it a more interesting touch... besides the brush you used emulates a real pencil.

Incredible!!! ;)
