Lovely work!

Now may I ask your help? I must be missing something on the watercolor portion / tool / brush as I do not seem to be able to make my colors co-mingle like that. I tried to make the paper wet, and played around with the settings on the brush, but still the results that I want, and that you have acheived excape me... :(

Thank you Sandy:):)

Thanks Chris.......I find watercolour quite difficult!:):)

Thanks uneek..........if you look very closely you can see my use of the knife on two settings to blend the colours....frosted spots and blur are the ones I used.:):)

Beauiful painting Peter, watercolour just runs away from me. Well done on controlling it:)

Thanks for the tips! I just found the PDF file that is the manual. I was the first time I pulled up the help file I guess, :o.

So I am reading that over and see a big ol' bucket of settings to play with. It will take quite awhile just getting a rudamentory feel for these and the inter-reactions... But that is at least 30% of the fun. :)

I also see we have a Tips & Tricks section to the forum... At first glance it seems pretty promising as well as a place to mine ideas from! Looks like I will be busy for a bit! Plus I found a neat free program called InkScapes that looks like it has a mammoth learning curve...
