Nice and scrubby just like the real deal. Good one. I know it's a personal choice, and in some ways the out of focus bit is groovy, sort of like a multiplane animation look, so on that level it's really cool. My tastes, for a painting, I like also when the focus is painted in so it has a whole unifying feel where the brushwork and color mixing does that. But it's all rockin'. Really great colors and brushwork in this. Nice painting Skyler. Good to see you back. Am enjoying your painting style. :cool::cool::cool::cool::cool:

Nice work and well done.

One question about this large size, did you find a lot of drag waiting with some brush strokes? I have an older computer from around the 2005 era with Windows XP, and have slow motion brush pick up problems with some brush strokes with a lot of different graphic arts software. Usually after document size images (8.5 X 11) I start getting brush strokes that slow down progressively the larger the image might be, frustrating since I would like to paint images on computer the same sizes I used to work with natural media: oils, acrylics, pastels, or pen and ink. Been using intel Pentium or duo core with 3 GB of RAM for past several years.
Are you finding the same situation or perhaps with a newer computer like Intel I7 or latest AMD processors the brushes run faster working an image 24 X 30?

I love this painting. Beautiful. I was doing some of a special event weeks ago. Interesting today I popped in, and saw few Artragers have painted this similar subject. :)
