Blue and Purple Textured Abstract Digital Painting

I made this square format digital abstract in Procreate over the summer. It has a roughly textured surface with shades of blue and purple, with white areas peeking through. I love lots of texture! This […]

0004-ljknight-citrus-spots-pattern-700.jpg

Yellow, Orange and Green Citrus Spots Pattern

This repeating spot pattern has different sized spots in orange, yellow and green citrus colours, on a bright white background. It has a cheerful, summery feel. Spots are one of my favourite pattern types, and […]

0000d-ljknight-orange-mandala-700.jpg

Black and Orange Abstract Mandala

This mandala is another old one – in fact, it’s one of the earliest vector mandalas I drew, using Inkscape. I tried Inkscape for a few weeks when I began learning vector art, but switched […]

Purple and Pink Wavy Stripes Abstract

This digital abstract is one of my favourites of the newer pieces I’ve made this year. It has wavy purple and magenta stripes with a textured lilac background. It’s hard to choose, but purple is […]

0005-ljknight-heart-art-700.jpg

Red, Pink and Purple Heart Art

I drew this heart art design in Procreate a few months ago. It’s in a similar bold geometric style to the abstract piece I posted recently, with a strong black outline, bright colours and a […]

0000y-ljknight-blue-abstract-art-700.jpg

Blue Wavy Abstract

Here’s another older digital abstract that I made in Photoshop a few years back. It has organic wavy lines in shades of vibrant blue, reminiscent of a mixture of clouds, marble and agate slices (that’s […]

0001-ljknight-chevron-heart-black-white-pattern-700.jpg

Black and White Chevron Heart Pattern

I made this black and white chevron heart pattern in Illustrator a few years ago. Chevrons were really popular at the time, but I wanted to do something a bit different, and I was happy […]

0000e-ljknight-yellow-mandala-700.jpg

Bold Black and Yellow Mandala

Here’s another of my older mandalas. This one has a simple bold black shape that I drew in Illustrator, set against a bright yellow background. I normally prefer more complex designs, but it’s always fun […]

0001-ljknight-watermelon-watercolour-painting-crop-700.jpg

Watermelon Digital Watercolour

I drew this watermelon slice in Procreate, using watercolour brushes. I like painting on paper more than digital art, but sometimes it’s just not convenient. Plus Procreate is a lot of fun, and you can […]

0000x-ljknight-blue-abstract-art-700.jpg

Blue Glowing Swirl Abstract

This glowing blue vortex is an older digital abstract piece that I made in Photoshop several years ago. It has a spinning look, with bright electric blue light on a dark background. This abstract swirl […]

Yellow, Red and Brown Geometric Abstract

I made this geometric abstract piece earlier in the year, using Procreate. It has random geometric shapes in red, yellow, orange and brown, some filled with doodle patterns. The textured white polka dot overlay gives […]

Blue and White Glowing Mandala

This is an older mandala that I made a couple of years ago, using Photoshop. The abstract organic design has a white glowing effect, against a monochromatic deep blue background. This is one of my […]

0000z-ljknight-black-abstract-art-700.jpg

Black and White Swirl Abstract Art

This digital abstract piece is one of the first I ever made on an iPad, several years ago now. It has an organic white swirling shape with a slightly smoke-like effect, against a black background. […]

0003-ljknight-diamond-pattern-700.jpg

Black and White Geometric Diamond Pattern

This black and white geometric diamond pattern is one that I made a few years ago when I was creating designs for my first adult colouring book, Geometric Patterns. This one didn’t make the cut […]

0005-ljknight-monstera-tropical-leaf-700.jpg

Tropical Monstera Leaf in Green and Blue

Plants and flowers are among my favourite subjects to draw and paint. I drew this single Monstera cheese plant leaf in Procreate a couple of months ago. It has a slightly flat graphic style with […]

Blue and White Marbled Liquid Abstract

Pastel White, Turquoise and Purple Abstract Mandala

I made this pastel mandala mandala in Procreate earlier this year. It has an abstract white design drawn over the top of a soft cloudy background in purple, turquoise blue, and pink. This is my […]

0002-ljknight-blue-squares-pattern-700.jpg

Blue and Black Squares Patterns

These square patterns are older designs that I made in Illustrator a few years ago. I don’t normally make lots of colour variations of my art or patterns. It’s tempting, as a lot of work […]

0001-ljknight-love-hand-lettering-700.jpg

Hand Lettered ‘Love’ Word Art

I enjoy hand lettering, although I don’t have a lot that I feel is good enough to share at this point. It’s something I definitely want to work on more, for both finished pieces and […]

0035-ljknight-green-marbled-abstract-700.jpg

Green Brown and Red Marbled Liquid Abstract

I recently posted one of my marbled abstract digital paintings, made in Procreate. Here is the second in that series, this time in green and brown with smaller areas of deep red. This abstract art […]

My Inktober Sketch Habit – Completed

At the start of October I made

0004-ljknight-orange-mandala-art-700.jpg

Orange and Yellow Mandala

Here is a digitally painted mandala that I made in Procreate earlier this year. It is bright orange and yellow with white textured areas and a simple rotational pattern. This abstract mandala art is for […]

0001-ljknight-red-buffalo-plaid-pattern-700.jpg

Hand Painted Gingham Check Pattern

Patterns are one of my favourite types of art to create, and I don’t do as much of them as I’d like, since so much of my time goes to my colouring books and other […]

Blue, Turquoise and White Abstract

This digital abstract is another that I made in Procreate a few months ago. It has loosely painted horizontal and vertical lines in blue, turquoise and white, with lots of texture. This blue and white […]

Cute Yellow Chicken Digital Art

I drew this cute chicken in Procreate on my iPad, over the summer. He (she?) has a textured yellow body, orange tail feathers, red comb and wattles, and a bit of an attitude ­čÖé I […]

0000b-ljknight-hexagon-mandala-art-700.jpg

Green and Purple Hexagon Mandala

This is another older mandala made in Paint Shop Pro many years ago. I only have a couple from this time that I still like. I suppose that in ten or fifteen years I may […]

0051-ljknight-red-white-swirl-abstract-art-700.jpg

Deep Red and White Swirls Abstract

I’ve been posting a lot of older work lately, so here’s something more recent – my newest abstract made in Procreate. It has white swirls on a soft textured deep red background. I finished it […]

0034-ljknight-pink-blue-marble-abstract-700.jpg

Pink, Blue and White Marbled Liquid Abstract

This digital abstract has a marbled look and textured surface, and the pink, blue and white colours give it a bit of a retro feel. I made it in Procreate a few months ago, after […]

0000w-ljknight-green-abstract-art-700.jpg

Green Check Abstract with Rough Texture

I went through a phase of making abstracts in Photoshop with a rough, grungy kind of texture a few years back, and this is another. It is green with a darker square/check pattern. I have […]

0000a-ljknight-purple-mandala-art-700.jpg

Purple Floral Mandala

This mandala is an old one! In fact it’s one of the first I made, back when I was using Paint Shop Pro years ago. PSP is a great program, but I don’t have it […]
