Hand drawn and painted version of photo of me in Painter 2015 by Lorraine Yigit.
Introducing Lorraine Yigit, artist. Lorraine is my human’s good friend, neighbor from across the street, and fellow PMPSS member. Lorraine, so kindly created this painting of me as a kitten on her computer, based on the photo below.
Meowee… Thank you Lorraine! You are a super pawsome artist, and welcome!!
How long have you been painting?
I have been painting for approx 10 years but not too seriously until about 3 years ago. I am mostly self taught especially on the electronic program.
What software & hardware do you use?
I use a professional art program called Painter 2015 by Corel, and a special drawing pen and tablet by Intuos. I use the electronic program regularly to problem solve paintings that I paint. I love this program. The finished result can be printed digitally from JPEG but in Painter I can print it from high resolution to achieve a full quality painting.
What type of paintings have you done?
My real paintings involve oil, water, pastel and acrylics and also digital. In Painter I used artist pastels, oil brushes and blenders to achieve the painting itself.
Is this real art?
There are people out there that photoshop pictures to make them look like paintings. This is not what I do. I draw the picture from the photo using the Intuos drawing pen, and then paint it. Electronics allow you the luxury of undoing what you don’t like and is the biggest difference between that and real time art with a canvas and paintbrush in your hand, otherwise this program is the same thing.
Some people don’t look at this as real art and there is a lot of debate about it right now.
Can readers see any of your other paintings online?
I have my new website (www.lorraineyigit.com) to showcase my work. Your readers are most welcome to visit and I hope they like what they see.
Thank you Lorraine for talking to us today. =^,,^=
