I am replacing this edition of Falls of Aurtumn back after having edited the fall colors. The original version's fall colors were dead and I just discovered the different Blend Modes and how they can help improve the art work. There is much I have yet to discover about ArtRage and that makes my life more interesting and less boring! lol Bless you all JUST for being there for each other!

Very nice. What did you use for the leaves near the waterfall?

Hi Alexandra and Sparkybrown. And thanks also to all who had commented before I pulled it to edit that paint.

I did those leaves in front of the water falls, using the Leaves spray stamp. I varied them in size accordingly to fool the eye in the illusion of the distance the eye is from the scene or painting. That size goes from 25 to 29%. The color is a medium dark green. Then I used the pencil with a lighter green if you notice, to give the leave its depth of light and shadow. Of course, the pencil size has to be also according to each leaf size, so being so small, I brought the painting zoom up a bit to be able to work on that detail with comfort.

SS, great job!!! I don't think I saw your previous post but I agree with you about the blend modes. I can never remember what they can do but I use 2 or 3 with great results. It's good to experiment.

I never got a chance to see the previous version, but this one is very nice. Peaceful and the colors are great for the time. Expertly executed with fantastic results.

Every time I pick up the program or read the forums here, I learn something new.

Thank you Jibes and MagenSparks... The previous paint was deserving of some light where the yellow colors are now. It really came to life. So you really missed out on nothing. Thanks for your warm comments. :)
