Trying to learn the medium, how to capture an idea with economy of style. Thus far, I am using the work of other artists for reference to learn to handle color. "Umbrella Sky" by Marta Dahlig is certainly the reference I used for this image.

It's (Artrage) an excellent program for simulating natural media. Marta Dahlig is an exceptional artist - as such - a good choice to study from. I am not sure - but I suspect she uses Photoshop as a painting tool (could easily be wrong). You will struggle to paint as smoothly in Artrage with the oil paint, unless you set the thinner higher, and maybe mix it with a little air brush (to speed up blending).
