Re: Small Visiter to My Rhododendron

Thanks RainySea. I use a mix of vector for the drawing and colour blocking and raster for the painting.

Re: Small Visiter to My Rhododendron

I'm confused: is this an original photo of yours that has been modified? or is it a completely original painting?

In either case, it is striking and I love it!

Thanx 4 posting, this pleaseth our eye, Greg.

Re: Small Visiter to My Rhododendron

Sorry I'm a little late in responding to your question, Greg. I've been missing in action. It's a original digital painting, not a photo or reworked photo. It's drawn from a Tofino Rhodo in my yard.

Re: Small Visiter to My Rhododendron

Now I'm even more impressed! I just cannot get the hang of digital painting, although I like playing with Photoshop8 on my photographs.

Thanx 4 the answer, Greg
