Played with the program PAINTER X today. This is probably an hour of work. Most of it was done with the Artist Oils brushes. I didn't do a lot of blending because I wanted the brush strokes to show. This program is going to be very addictive. I need to make sure I don't go overboard. :) This piece was done completely in the program. I roughed it out with big blocks of color, no contour, or outline drawing. Fun stuff. And yes, I realized after I was done that his collar should have been blue. Oops.
