Sales exhibition in April 2016

I was eagerly writing a novel during 2016 and made just a few digital paintings.  On April 23rd and 24th an annual sales exhibition took place where I live. About 100 artists were represented – some world famous  – and others local like myself. I had six paintings for sale this time and managed to sell five of them. This is one of them:

I am currently  writing a novel  and have made only a few paintings the last couple of years. April 18th and 19th an annual sales exhibition took place where I live. About 120 artists were represented – some world famous  – and others local like myself. I had six paintings for sale this time and this one was sold:

Sales exhibition in April 2014

The last week-end of April there was a sales exhibition where I live. About 100 artists were represented – some world famous, like Victor Vasarely and Theo Tobiasse – and others quite local like myself. I had five paintings for sale and two of them were sold. This was one of them:

Photo-Reactor

Oscar’s creativity has no limits. Now he has created another unique application – the Photo-Reactor – which is meant to be an «image editor for 21st century! Photo-Reactor is a new, highly optimized dynamic image editor and effect processor with absolutely unlimited possibilities and fantastic effects».

Here I have tried to achieve a painterly style with distinct brush strokes.

Leonid AOP

I have been working on a new AOP for a long time and at last it is finished. It is heavily inspired by the palette knife strokes of the Belarussian painter Leonid Afremov and is therefore named Leonid AOP. I have made both a 32-bits and a 64-bits version. It works best on motives with few elements. So far I have had most success with trees. But most of Afremov’s paintings have lots of trees so that should be OK! A Swedish friend of mine whom I gave a pre-release version of this AOP a while ago has already sold a painting made with it at the Fine Art America site.

Photo Blend

Oscar has just released his new and exciting piece of software named Photo Blend and I look forward to testing it.

64-bits version of Dynamic Auto-Painter

Today Oscar released the new version of  DAP which is native 64-bits and runs only on Vista and Windows 7 64-bits OS. This makes it possible to make 4 times bigger brushes (600 x 600 px instead of 300 x 300 px) and up to 32 Mpx large paintings. Close-up of new and sharper brush strokes:

 

One of my paintings on TV

This summer the Norwegian TV channel TV3 borrowed three of my digital paintings from the furniture shop where they are sold for use in a new TV series about redecoration of old flats, based on the Mad About the House series on BBC Three. Tonight one of these paintings was seen in the show.

 

Deep Forest

Today I released my Deep Forest AOP at the DAP café. It was named so because it seemed only capable of doing a decent job with forest images. But after some testing I saw it could make some interesting portraits too. It was meant to paint with rough, broad, expressionistic(?) strokes but right before releasing it I also put in some palettes with thinner strokes to make it more versatile. An example of what it does:

 

Pixarra TwistedBrush Pro Studio

My extended trial version of Pixarra’s interesting piece of software named TwistedBrush Pro Studio has just expired so now I have bought it. It has more than 5000 different brushes available, which should be enough for most of us. So far I have used it (the trial version) to make the brush strokes for one of my latest AOPs, Pino.
