Here are a few more little ones that I did this last week. Three of these are digital paintings that I did with TwistedBrush on the computer and one is a 4 X 6 inch oil done on a plastic panel. The little oil is the simple vinyard painting and the other three are the digital ones. I didn't have anything in particular I was trying to do and was letting each painting form as it did as I was working on it. Sometimes its just fun just to be able to paint and not have to mess with paints, medimums and such. The nice thing about working digitally is that you can experiment all you want and not waste valuable material if you don't like what comes out. Some of these little digital studies may actually be made into actual oils paintings at some point. Digital is a great way to try out ideas before you commit to working with actual paint. I have found that with the TwistedBrush software I can just about paint on the computer the the same way I do with actual oils and brushes. I still haven't gotten the hang of using all that is available in the software and tend to paint all on one layer without using all the tricks that are available. Of course having a Wacom tablet makes all the difference.

These are more digital paintings that I did awhile ago. I guess that I was in an orange mood when these were done. There isn't any size that these were done in. That is one of the nice things about working on the computer, you can work in any size you want to and then print them out at whatever size you want. I'm going to put my work up on my facebook page. If anyone wants to look at it and wants to be friends I'd appreciate it. One thing an artist needs is exposure so getting as many people to be friends with is what it is all about. All of the works that I've posted here and on Facebook are for sale. If anyone wants to inquire about any piece shown here or in my Etsy store or on the Facebood page, just drop me a note on email and I'll get back to you as soon as possible.

Here is some of the other artwork that I did a while ago. These are all digital paintings that I did on the computer using a painting program called Twisted Brush and a Wacom digital drawing tablet. All of these painting are digital files on the computer and I haven't yet printed any of them out. Most of these were done late last year as I was getting used to drawing on the computer. Again, I was just trying to make pretty pictures and wasn't trying do anything special except learn how to draw on screen. I put some of them on Twisted Brush's web site but a couple of months ago it crashed and all the pictures were lost. Maybe I'll make some small prints of these later this summer.

These are a couple of seascapes that I did awhile ago. I was in a phase of monochromatic painting and using Prussian blue and white. I added a touch of violet to the clouds on the one I call Shoreline Silhouette because I thought that is looked just a little drap in only one color. The other one I left as a monochrome. I added severl more little painting to my Etsy store this morning so if anyone want to have a look I'd appreciate it. It adds to the views and I would like to build that up, makes me feel that I may be accomplishing something.

Here are some more of my little paintings. These also are done in oil paints on plastic painting panels. These are all 3 1/2 x 5 inches in size and are oil paintings on plastic painting panels. All of these were made or composed as I painted them. I very rarely sketch anything onto the panel before I paint. These three were all painted about two weeks. The mountain strean and the lighthouse took about an hour each to do and the snowy path probably took about a half hour.
I've started a store on the Etsy.com website and am going to see if maybe I can sell some of these. It's called: Lowells Art - The landscape and seascape paintings of Lowell F Stanley. Here is a link to it if anyone wants to have a look at it. If you do, I'd appreciate a comment on what you think of it.

Here are some more little paintings that I've done in the last couple of days. The yellow desert piece is 4 x 6 inches, the one of the northern lights is 5 x 7 inches and the one of a beach sunset is also 5 x 7 inches. These are also done in oil on plastic panels. Back in the middle of March I decided to try to average a little painting a day and so far I've been fairly able to accomplish my goal. Since then I've managed to get about 38 of these little ones done.
