Toward the next step

As I work toward getting my graphics system together, I continue to do small pieces using either GIMP or MyPaint.  In case anyone is curious, I currently have a dual core processor that is running Linux.  It’s not much, but it runs!  Which is more than I can say for my main graphics machine.   That’s why I need to be careful with my graphics processing resources!

Yet, I want to be prepared when I actually have enough processing power and graphics memory do do something large.  What’s an enterprising artist to do?  I’ve decided to work on light and shadow, elements of composition, and the ever popular “thumbnail appeal.”

Here is one of my recent pieces that was exploring what you can do on a small scale in GIMP.
