I get the feeling that the collaborative painting part of the Paintshop doesn't really works because there are a lot of aggressive, less creative, painters that like to bash the other contributors.
The quality, and that of course is completely according to my personal values, is not that high. I think the painting more often don't transcend the 'material' and remain some scribbles on the screen. Also, the more successful creations have a more deliberate concept behind them.
I'm not claiming to have made the best 'paintings' and before I select the things I like from other contributors I'll show what I have created, at least the ones I think the most successful:
I like the idea of the overpainting, creating the shapes from the outside in. Also the shapes hint at a figuration which is an idea that i'm working on lately
A reaction to a collaborative spat that turned sour.
Here, the result of a quite long session achieves a painterly aspect that i like a lot
This one is conceptual. The idea had to be realized :)
|There and back
These kind of drawings really don't support collaboration
More of a joke
Again, the painterly aspect lifts it to another level
|The graphic effect is really nice||It's a figurative work that has a nice handwriting|
|Conceptually it had to be done||As did this one|
|It seem to be one of the collaborative ones that actually has a nice atmosphere||nice and bold|
|graphically very successful||Nice touch, those bubbles|
|the texture supports the meaning||different handwritings, still full of emotion|
|Those abstract expressionist roots go deep||Until its minimal|
|Nice portrait||More abstract expressionism|
|nice lithograph||Mostly the bloody mindedness|
|nice structure & control|
