This is Colin. Colin is a spray paint artist, who has been working to eradicate graffiti in my neighborhood here in Toronto. Colin was creating this mural on a detached double car garage last summer. … that’s why he was shirtless, it was summer. Just so you know.
Cherry is my third painting using Microsoft Fresh Paint. I used a little photo editing with the help of Photoscape to create the shadow effect. It took me three days to do this as it was difficult for me (as a wanna-be painter) to create the 2-D effect. It was more difficult than I thought, specially since I am just using the mouse for my brush.
I have ordered a Sensu Brush and Stylus from Amazon. It cost CDN$61.11 (cost plus delivery). That’s a lot of money for a brush. It better be worth it.
The is my second painting created with Microsoft Paint. I was going to call it A Tree because there is only one tree, but Landscape seems more fitting. It is so simple; it actually looks nice. Maybe you don’t think so.. but for me, it is a masterpiece. lol
I just discovered Microsoft Fresh Paint. Hallelujah! It is even better than Microsoft Paint. It’s like real life painting experience. So realistic. The paint in Fresh Paint actually felt like I had a palette and easel in front of me. I could blend and mix colors to get specific shades I chose and the app has lots of editing options.
The Red Flowers is my first try. I still have a lot to learn. And learn I will.. you’ll see.
It is a tulip! It is a purple tulip. I love tulips and, in my opinion, a tulip is the easiest flower to draw using Microsoft Paint. I really believe I am getting better, don’t you think?
You are probably wondering by now, why on earth would I be doing art when obviously I am not an artist? Well, I am a wanna-be-artist, ok? But I don’t want to spend money buying paints, pencils, canvasses and whatnots, and then one day, just put them away with all my other projects that are hidden in my closet. Stay away from that closet! Don’t even think about it.
Well, don’t you think my purple tulip is pretty? It is so.
It was so tempting to do a drawing of myself as mzrosie… so I indulged my vanity. I think I did a good job.. don’t you think? That was how I look when I was thinner and younger.. ok much younger.. much much younger. Other than that, I captured my love for life, the building where I live, the trees in the park, and my little flat nose.
Not bad for a second project using Microsoft Paint, if I may say so myself.
I’m so excited. I just finished my first masterpiece “Ninja Turtle” using Microsoft Paint. It may look like a kindergarten kid’s art (please kids, don’t take this as an insult) but I am very proud of it. The cool background is courtesy of a free online photo editor.
