Interesting view of the sax! It creates an almost abstract quality! Great first effort with AR! Looking forward to seeing some more soon!

Welcome! That's a great painting, however many long-past memories of practicing the saxophone it brings in me :-)

Welcome, Stewynofly! What a great start with ArtRage! Beautiful abstract painting and how I love the sound of a saxophone....

Welcome, Stewy!!! Very watercolor-like. What tools did you use?? It's GREAT for a first painting, heck, you're a pro!!!

Do you play saxophone?
This has a pleasing contemporary and urban feel to it. Welcome to the forums!

Thank you everyone for such a warm welcome.

foxytocin - I do not play sax but my son did in high school. I always wanted to paint this in watercolors but never got around to it (does anyone have a round toit?)
As far as the contemporary and urban feel, I thought so too, in fact the way it turned out reminds me of "poster" art.

irishrose - what tools did I use? mostly airbrush and palette knife, sometimes the felt tip set real narrow and light pressure to follow a stencil in ruler mode to draw a line. And I have been a watercolor painter for several years, just not a very good one.

Although I dabble with vector graphics to make web graphics and company logos, etc..., I love the idea of painting on the computer.
It feels more like actually painting.

Unfortunately, I can get lost in the process for hours.
