This is the combined layers which I have begun to paint over with a photoshop brush.

My next blog post will be a continuation of my progress on this digital painting, which will be added to my “Inner Space” series. The current title is “Inner Space 18”. I will choose a new name when I am finished with this painting.

oil on canvas print painting by John Foster Dyess

The questions are:? What is an abstract painting? What is a realistic painting?
This image started out as combination of photographs I took of several objects and scans of textures I created that I combined in layers using Photoshop. I began to see various forms in my Photoshop creation and began to enhance these forms using a Photoshop brush. After I had completed my digital image I had it printed on canvas ,and using oil paint  I glazed over the print. I have created shapes and forms like I would if I were painting an object or landscape. The difference is this landscape exist in my brain.
This is from a series of paintings I call Inner space.

Inner Space 1 by John Foster Dyess

After decades of creating illustrations and paintings that have represented what I see outside my body through my eyes; I have been creating a new series of digital paintings that I have titled Inner Space.This series represents nothing that I see through my eyes.
I have enjoyed creating this series.
