Thanks Karen, glad you like.
@ timE .... "Grampa's Pride" is pure photo manipulation. Originally shot and processed on an iPhone and now re-processed in ArtRage, SketchBook Pro and CS6. .... Sometimes I just manipulate photos but lately I've been working on a reverse process by creating a digital painting and later treating it as a photo manipulation ( hope that made sense, I tend to be rather bass ackwards in my approach to art )
This is one of my digital paintings using ArtRage oils and palette knife without any manipulations.
This one is a digital painting I did using ArtRage and SketchBook Pro and later treated as a photo manipulation on my iPhone in order to achieve the texture.
