Here, you can see earlier versions of this artwork. It’s cool how God can bring things together. I’m not sure if I should tweak this anymore, but for now, I’m happy with it.
This is a digital image that was made spontaneously on Coral Painter and Photoshop. It’s so fun to just play, experiment, and try new things. It took a while before I liked it.
As I was making it, God showed me an upside down heart, and He said, “Hearts are hanging in the balance. Tell them to choose Life.” He brought up that scripture from Deuteronomy to my remembrance. He will most likely say more about this, but when He does, I will make what He says along with the art a different post. I decided to leave this post about the art process.
He had me emphasize both the dark and the light portions through shadows and glows, then had me add another heart, which I cut and pasted from the following alcohol ink.
The bottom part of the heart wasn’t there, so I added it digitally. The salt effect on Coral Painter watercolor brushes looks similar to the alcohol ink circles.
