  • So I’m not the only one who still likes to poke around in MS Paint?! ;)

  • Wow the use of colour & composition in these is amazing! Didn’t know you could make gradients in Paint, but it’s been so long since I used it I probably wouldn’t remember anyway… :p

      I never knew about the gradients either. I remember in the early days, brown was made up of a mix of yellow, white, and red pixels. Once you paint bucketed a section, you could never undo it, because it no longer was a solid colour. I remember being so excited when real non-mixed colours came out. Gradients must have come later.

    I love these so much.

    These are fantastic. I love the falling rose and sailing on a piece of the sun.


  • Andrew Campbell

    Your drawings are very cool. I love the simplicity of the figures. It makes for a very calming and pleasurable view. Also, your use of contrasting colors truly makes the piece pop. I’ve never seen anyone fade the backgrounds like you have. It is a great method! my favorite image is the woman sitting on a blue ridge. The contrasting blue against the red and pink is grand!
