Announcement

HB

I've run out of illustrations and design work from the past to post and am going to combine my blogs into one which will feature my contemporary projects such as paintings, various design projects as well as my computer experiments. If I run across any more work from years past, I will post them. No more posts on this blog, go to harryborgmanart.blogspot.com

More digital experiments

The computer is a fabulous medium for artists that love to experiment with color and design. The possibilities are endless and it's great fun to try out wild and crazy ideas.

More of my color and design digital figure studies. These are very interesting to create and the computer is the best medium for doing these kinds of experiments.

New digital figure studies

I've started a new series of color and design experiments which are created on the computer. Here are three new abstract figure studies which may eventually develop into acrylic paintings on canvas.

New digital images

I love to experiment with color and design on the computer. These are a couple of pieces created last night and this morning. I'm thinking about doing a whole series of these abstractions for a gallery exhibition. These are actually collages as I use pieces of previous digital images that I have done.

The images are 11 x 17" and will be limited edition prints on archival paper using pigmented inks.

Digital figure studies

I experiment a great deal on the computer, creating abstract color designs and various types of figure studies. Here are a few examples of my figure studies which can be used as preliminary sketches for acrylic paintings or printed on archival paper as limited edition prints.

The computer is a terrific medium for experimenting with color and design. You can easily do several versions of the same study for evaluation, something that would take a great deal of time with traditional painting mediums.
