Random from paintings

WARNING: Exposure to extreme levels of inspiration can often produce varying responses including butterfly flutters, gut-wrenching emotion, shortness of breath, and boggling of mind. Proceed with caution.

Cowbot by Sya
Cowbot
From the Robot Junkyard Series

4.25 x 6 inch watercolor and ink over an acrylic wash.

An explanation of the process for those just joining :) 

I presoak the watercolor paper and tape it to the board, sometimes, I give it a very light wash over the top for the sky. Once dry, I mix 2 or 3 colors of paint and give the canvas another light wash. While wet, I lay a sheet of plastic wrap on top, which makes th
e incidental shapes I'll use as my guides when it's dry. 

The acrylic wash is great because I can draw and erase over it several times without damaging the paper. It also lets the texture of the paper come through, and it can be removed in areas (as well as ink) with a little alcohol.

My camera didn't do a very good job of picking up the subtle things you can spot with the eye. The best, in my opinion, are the teeeny-tiny sparkles in the paint on the unicornbot, the car, the green robot in the foreground, and a few other smalls. 


There are also metallics that shine here and there, like in the cowbot, the banjo, the car bumper and the plank the bird's perched upon.

For 10+ years, it's been my pleasure to contribute to the fractal community here at DA. Some of you may remember my resources, tutorials, and administration work behind the scenes with the Apophysis group years ago. Now I'm entering a phase in my career where I'm focussed on exhibiting my traditional paintings and sculptures so lately when I create fractal art, it's more for my own entertainment and relaxation than for the enjoyment of others.

I'll still share them here from time to time. If you happen to find fractal art in my gallery beautiful or symbolic, that's a bonus! If you like it, feel free to add it to your collection. :) I used to have time to thank everyone individually but now, I try to pass out llamas. Whatever the case, it's hard to express the gratitude and appreciation I have for all of you in the community who have taken the time to comment or befriend me.

So I hope you understand, though I'm sincerely thankful, I do realize that time is short and precious for us all, and I would rather envision you spending your time here at dA looking through the FRACTALS of budding artists - they are doing amazing things! Please go out and encourage them with your kind words as you have treated me so kindly over the years.

For this reason, I'm turning off comments for the fractals I share from here on out. Now go out and start spreading the fractal love around!

Want to chat about Apophysis, Chaotica, or inquire about using a fractal for your project, please send me a PM or find me at:
