I'm taking a class at DIgital Art Academy 'whats new in painter 2017' and have been really enjoying all the new wonderful things in this version of painter. This was a painting I did a dew years ago that was very lack luster. I desaturated it and played with the new texture brushes and blend mode and this is the result.
A great way to zip up an otherwise dull painting!

All comments and critiques are welcome. Thanks for looking!

This is the original before I desaturated it to play with.

I like the colours and the increased contrast in the new version.

Quite a difference from you first elephants, which I like much better....you know I have done that. taken some older paintings and redone them. So much we can do with digital painting.

Love what you've done with this. I see little wet spots and blooms.

Love it as well and now you've got me thinking of actually taking a class. Probably won't though :-)

Thanks everyone! I think this also expresses my growth as an artist. I have finally learned to embrace color. But it is still sometimes a challenge.
Thanks again for looking!

Bother are great!

What I might have done, was take the original and darkened the background areas or maybe parts of the elephants to show contrast between the two elements.

Just my 2...

Gives the watercolour style of painting and looks good.
