Okay, one last 'computer' piece.

This 'painting' was the result of a prelim. sketch that was painted over with watery washes of base "skin values". After this, I proceeded to apply the colours in the traditional cross-hatch method with 'coloured pencils'( this may be seen more clearly by left 'clicking' on the above illustration) until I felt I could go no further. The edges were then cleaned up with the eraser tool. The clothing was just a wash of colour and the eraser tool applied in some areas. Cross- hatching can also be seen.

Okay, that's it...I gotta go painting ! I miss the smell of "paint".

'til next
