From a RIL pic by judwal. Thanks judwal.

Freehand P8. Using a Wet soft acrylic brush. I used colour variability to try to obtain a bit of texture and marbling on the wall.

Well done. A bit of a "halo" around the hand.

Great painting Barry. I see the arm of that bench is lighter in the photo but I think I would darken it a bit more anyway. It kind of looks unfinished right now. The color varience works great on the wall.

Very cool! I like the way you left out some of the detail, it now focuses in on the individual! Great colors! :)

I like this very much, but there is something about his hand that bothers me....maybe too white around it? I dunno, great job

Thanks Aggie. I have corrected the hand on my big version, and it looks a lot better.


Anybody got an opinion as to whether showing the original is better than not showing it?

Sorry Jean missed this. I originally posted it by mistake in the digital art general forum, so I reposted here :)

Thanks for your comment Annie

Very well done. I'm glad you liked my photo enough to use in your painting. I like very much all those colors and textures you've introduced.
