    Here's what I would suggest: Save this version (which is very good, by the way) as an ArtRage file (file ... save) and then play around with modifying or adding to it. Once you have it where you want it, if you then save it as a jpg or png (file ... export) you can use other programs to print it or send it in an email or whatever. Welcome to here VTKV and have fun with the program.

    That sounds like good advice from Robert to me. One of the best things about digital is the ability to save versions as you go. The you never have to be afraid of going astray and having to start from scratch. Just keep playing and enjoy yourself. Welcome.

    You have a good eye for color. This is very vibrant. I can see that you will be posting some dynamic stuff.

    I love the color. Make me think in summer sunset or in fire in the forest.
    I think that the tree, at that place, add some confussion (I'm trying to see the whole tree all the time :P).

    By the way, I have no idea about painting, I'm just taliking as an observer (my english is preaty bad too, sorry).

    Welcome to the forums!

    The colors are lively. Ill agree with what Robert and Nickillus have said.

    Get to where you are fairly satisfied with a painting and save it as is, then save it as version 2 (e,g, darkday.ptg and another as darkday2.ptg). That way when/if you mess up the next version, you can always return to the original one and try something else. (I speak from experience--Ive had to go back a number of times. )

    Have fun. Im looking forward to seeing more of your work.
    The only problem with humor is that no one takes it seriously.
