    I like your tutorial very much, orianelima.
    It's very clear and the pics says all what is needed to do impastos.
    My motivation to paint is now increased again,

    Thank You, dear Oriane! I got so enthusiastic about these impasti (the Italian etimology has clearly to do with the process of handmade pasta), that I had to try in half an hour this series of combinations. I hope You find them interesting.

    Hi,

    What you have given us all is a great, helpful gift! You know, I'm sure, about the learning curve associated with new software. For most of us, the software is in control and we can, at best, play until happy accidents happen! Maybe some of us sit back and say..... I wonder what I did to make that happen.

    Your gift has now given me the "advantage" over AR... I love the impasto look for real and simulated. I'm ok with it in the for real department, but your help as given me the power (control) to make it happen digitally. And that is very cool! Thanks!!!

    Can I buy you a beer!

    Cordially,

    Jim

    Oriane, this is outstanding. I love everything about it, but particularly like some of your workarounds dealing with the bump shadow that can plague the lower right trailing edges in the AR lighting effects. Someday I hope AR will give the Artist's options to control the built in lighting direction. But your approach is a good one for dealing with that little problem. And the overall technique illustrations are an entire arsenal of delights for creating all manner of beautiful art with endless possibilities. Just a super job.

    To show you what I meant I just did an example and finally obtained the effect when remaining longer on the stroke,
    I didn't get it first because I like to work fast and didn't think to the factor time, well here are the image and I imagine there are nothing else to do for the smooth effect than not to be in the hurry,
    am I wright ?
    Yes Dany, you are right
