'An altered chair'...makes me think of 'an altered state [frame] of mind' :-)

And relaxing is often an altered state for people in this hectic world...

I love this! What great colors. Would you do a large oil painting of this?

it turned out great. i love the red with the purple. and i like the texture of the "upholstery."

Caroline said...

nelly - thanks - I'm currently planning a collage that will include it - not sure where it will lead...

catnapping - thanks - I tried other colours but these were the ones I liked best.

How VERY cool! The use of technology requires SO much creativity, and you evidently have it in spades. Perfect.

Yummy. I really like this... All that intensity!

Rebekah - I immediately started thinking about colourful spades and garden forks etc... on reading your comment!

Sultry Painterwoman - thanks - sit down and be enveloped in the colour!

Oooh..love the vibrancy of this! I did a series of chairs awhile ago and this made me realise I kind of miss drawing them!

I love what you are doing with your Painter IX. Is it a likeable programme?

Caroline said...

Amy - I hope you have some fun drawing more chairs!

Marie - I love Painter IX. Its important not to feel overwhelmed by it and to continually, but slowly, increase one's knowledge of it - though I suppose that's true of all the large packages really. And it is extremely helpful to have a decent tablet and pen. That made a huge difference to my enjoyment of it.
