Beanstalk ©2017 Galen Valle. All rights reserved. Jack and the Beanstalk new media painting. Jack is having a bad day. This is a ‘destructive’ digital painting technique I sometimes do just messing around. Rather than being ‘non-destructive’ and saving everything nicely in layers (for editing), I flatten everything as I do it – so there is no going back. Mistakes stay (or get covered up) and they usually turn out really badly. I don’t usually keep them – but I like the spontaneous and slightly creepy vibe of this one, so it survived.
