The Shell

   CS5, WACOM

This is a flat shell I had for many years. Picked it up on a shore in New Zealand. I took a shot and actually calculated the form to get used to the WACOM. Then I added the different, colored curves and a layer with the shell coloring.

I am a bit frustrated as most pencils tend to be thinner then it looks on the screen. Maybe my image is too large. Have to try a smaller size. I obviously can´t paint sand so I kept that visible in the image. Just added a texture on it.

WACOM   CS5

I have a lot to learn on how to work on WACOM. One thing is to coordinate eyes and hand movements. As you are looking at the screen while drawing on the WACOM tablet. Harder then I thought it would be. And lot to learn about pencils and pressure too.

Some day I might get  the hang of it.

Meditation experience in a sketch

This is something I wanted to "put on paper" for several years now, and failed. Tried photo, photoshop and the WACOM tablet. And failed. So, as a last attempt I went to the bookstore and bought oil crayons. And this is the very first sketches I made. The crayons still has sharp edges. I also added a small green light in Photoshop CS5. As this is jsut a first attempt I post it in my blog Image Workshop.

This is a meditation I had years ago. In meditation I felt I had another mind attached to me below my hip. and slightly behind it. (first image). It happened several times. I also had a dream of a coffin filled with water, with a dead person trying to get out of there. And with stairs behind it.

Later on I had contact with a man who knew a medium. It was arranged that she should tap into my mind when I meditated. Without knowing what it was about. Two days later I got an email. My friend had word from the medium that "I had a dead soldier clinging to me. When he died, drowning in water, he saw the green light I radiated when I was meditating and clinged to it.  He thought I was a higher being and wanted to be rescued." It was when I read that I realised the meditation and dream was the same experience.

Scary, isn´t it? In some way. But, now, I finally can show it on paper.
On a sidenote, I don´t meditate anymore.
