Adobe Fresco has a series of raster oil painting brushes that create life-like oil painting. I tried it and really enjoyed it. This is my first ever “oil-painting”.
Many people are aware that the present day National Gallery was once a Supreme Court and City Hall. However few people know the site once stood a beautiful hotel – The Grand Hotel de l’Europe. When I was asked to create a representational painting of the National Gallery as part of a NAC-Plural Art project, I chose to paint its predecessor building nstead because I found the two buildings were strikingly similar, except for the hotel’s square crown versus the gallery’s green dome. To make sure the National Gallery is represented, I painted an artist sitting on the Padang painting a scene of the present day building!
