just toying with Painter's pencils and digital water. I'd been looking at Earl Oliver Hurst's work (http://www.americanartarchives.com/hurst.htm)

Hi TW,

Painter's Digital Watercolor variants are nice, aren't they? I love the soft look we can get, and you have in your painting.

Good to see you, friend. ;)

Nice sketch Tom. I took a look at your link and really like that kind of work. I think that digital can really excel at it. Much more so than trying to print something and make it look like traditional paints. Not to mention that sort of illustrative art is always so interesting.

Thank you. The maddening thing about digital water colors with Painter 9.5 is that no one tells to "dry" the layer of paint each time. I was disappointed in the digital watercolor till I figured out the drying technique. Now (sorry to get kind of techy here) I simply made a shortcut key (F8 for me, but could be any of them) to easily dry the layer with each brush stroke. Now I understand the beauty of the digital brush.

Don Seegmiller has a nice tutorial (http://apps.corel.com/painterix/training/tutorial_watercolor.html) over at the Painter site on ideas like this.

ah thank you marge. I hate the hair, but I mainly wanted to post something where I worked with the digital watercolor. I might try another whack at this, this time with a more complex palette.

Looks great Tom, and thanks for the tip on the dig water colours, I will try that and see if I can get anywhere past the usual mess I make LOL

I like the looseness of this sketch. I'd like to see more of these from you.
Thanks for the link. This style has been making a re-emergence (For example,see Shane Glines' work: Cartoon Retro. (http://www.shaneglines.net/) (***Contains nudity***). I use elements of it in my 'toons.
