Hi, and many thanks to all of you who took the time to view and comment on "My First ArtRage Drawing."
After posting that piece, I could hardly wait to get started on anotheróworking with a tablet may give me fits from time to time, but not enough to stop me: I just love this program!
Anyway: for my second ArtRage piece, I thought I'd try my hand at a painting, and this landscape (treescape) is the result of a couple of days' experimentation with the paintbrush, roller, and chalk tools.
I'm not entirely satisfied with the tree (which is a kind of pine), but then it must be said that, even using traditional tools and media, I've always had difficulty capturing the texture of this particular type of tree. (It's like some sort of obstacle I feel compelled to keep taking runs at, until I finally make it over!)
