This digital painting uses urban Middle East motifs. I lived in Cairo, Egypt for a couple of years and was struck by the magnificent architecture that graced the older areas of the city. This is something of an homage to those beautiful forms.

This image was created entirely in Photoshop using a fairly wide array of brushes. Like some of my other digital compositions, this one was a case of starting with a few effects and going with the flow from there, while trying to pay attention to composition, contrast, and the use of lines.
This is a layered image, with diluted acrylic washes at the lowest level, then some blue and red strokes, followed by the black, which was much thicker than the other pigments. This piece borrows from the evocative shapes of Asian ink traditions, but is not a Japanese or Chinese character.

In this work, I was focused on creating a sense of colors merging into and flowing around each other. I think the net result also evokes a tangle of nerve fibers.

This painting was created fairly quickly, but in layers: blue, orange, and black in that order. The blue is mostly covered up, but it comes through in some places. I did this very spontaneously, while at the same time I tried to pay attention to the overall composition and the mix of colors. I used acrylic paint and diluted it so that it would splatter and run.
