Watercolor Practice


Gave my Wacom a break and went back to traditional media. I haven't touched watercolors since grade school and it went really bad the first time of using it again but there's progress.

Hello Blogspot!

Hello new blog! I've decided to migrate blogs from Wordpress to blogger as it's a lot more convenient to keep track of blogs that I follow as most of them are from Blogspot. I was planning on importing posts from my previous blog, and I did, but the thing is, about 90% of the posts had to be edited to fit the new layout here. I managed to publish 6 entries before I gave up. I'd probably get around and publish all of them though.

Since I missed doing portraits, I got around to working on this last weekend. Used Painter for most of the work, PS for the color adjustments and finishing touches. Random flowers are random.

Fun with Painter's palette knife brush. Tweaked the colors a bit on Photoshop.

Leyendecker Study 01

First post for 2011!

A J. C. Leyendecker study, from one of his Saturday Evening Post covers.

I plan on doing more of these and most probably from other artists too. Done in Corel Painter. I'm finally getting the hang of it. It took me some time to decide which brushes I'll be using the most, which is kinda the reason why I haven't posted anything new lately. I had to try them all, figure out how to tweak them, and to establish a  work flow when I'm using Painter.

Cheers and a Happy New Year!
