Deep In The Forest was a fun one to paint.
I started it in Painter with liquid inks splayed all over the page in bright colors. Then I took it into Rebelle. Rebelle, is a new digital painting application that has amazing watercolor and ink effects. I was able to get wonderful drips flowing out of the liquid inks.
Then I brought the painting back into Painter and finished it with Blend Camel Hair brushes I made. I had so much fun finding flowers and little animals.
As always, light and dark values were a challenge, but I think I did pretty well with them.
Another problem I’ve had is putting something right smack dab in the middle of the painting. This happens more often with rectangle-shaped canvases, so I have moved to using square canvases.
