Here’s a new portrait study in a digital “scribble” technique with which I’ve been experimenting.
I used a very limited number of values.
…and if my Photoshop Brush Settings had been any simpler, I could have done it in Mario Paint.
100% Opacity. 100% Flow. No feathering. No soft edges.
Obviously, there’s no color.
The expressiveness came only from the “Scribbly” Brush Tip and the physical gesture of each brush stroke.
If you’re feeling frustrated or overwhelmed with your paintings, consider setting up some extreme limitations for yourself.
I believe you’ll find the limitations quite freeing.
Try eliminating certain aspects from the process in order to create some mental space for greater focus or creativity.
