wacom portrait

I’ve been playing with my new Wacom pen and tablet. I took a photo of my daughter Lizzi and “painted” over it in Corel Painter. Fastest portrait I ever painted! There’s no substitute for the real thing, the smell of the paint and the way it feels in the brush, but I have to admit, this was pretty fun and there’s no clean up! If you click on the image you can view a close-up of the piece and see the brush strokes. There’s so much to learn that it’s a little overwhemling, maybe I should take a class?

  1. Beautiful! Looks like you have a pretty good handle on the program without taking any classes. I especially like the strong focal point of her blue eyes in contrast to the softness of the lighting surrounding her hair. I’m drawn right in. Great work!
