Like the color. What medium and what size is this?

I am curious about the medium too- I love the contrast, and the fact that the yellow has such a cool qualituy to it-
The composition really works too-I always wonder- even with my own
work- what gave you the idea for this?

This started out as a watercolor and then a funny thing happened on the way to art-agent.com...http://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/images/20-Jul-2001/MagicToadstools-wc.jpg Watercolor, 5x7 inches on D'Arches 140# cold press paper scanned into Adobe Accident 4.01 (PhotoShop).

Hey, I'm glad you all liked this experiment. I don't know why I paid so little attenion to my painting as a source for digital art. All the digial stuff I've done up to now has been based on my photographs or done freehand. In this piece I definatly got carried away, first with brightness and contrast and then I got to wondering what the subject might of looked like if I had taken a different aproach, so that led to 'Pallet knife', then 'brushstrokes', then the glass filter called 'tiny lens', then some lighting effects and color balance, whew! At leased this time I remember what I did to end up where I did (unlike "Mr. Bii's Eye" which I use as a tinyhead!!!) Oh, yeah...no freehand painting in this one as I usually do.

No one could argue this is not orginal art! I LOVE the end result. Peace, love and harmony...
