Welcome back.

I missed seeing your paintings. Looks like you were having a colorful visit in Greece. Very complex scenes. Your colors always seem to improve over photographs. You have a keen sense of color.

I love your beautiful brushwork and color... give a sense of the strong sunlight and blue skies... the complex people in your scene give a lively animation to each work...

Just beautiful Brieux, and yes, the light is wonderful!

Are these done 'plein air'?

I especially like the third painting where there is the hint of the figures walking into the sun - is it called backlighting?

Yeah, I have been away here for a long time since that I'm focusing on real oil painting. Nevertheless ArtRage is still a great tool of natural painting in a digital way. I mostly ArtRage direct on my own photo material, which I of course first prepare (colorwise, cropping etc.) with Photoshop.

Indeed, backlight or backlighting it's called.

I still have to deal with a Wacom tablet and labtop: an iPad would be easier to sit en plein air. No, I took the photos and ArtRaged them later in my holiday villa.
