    Thank You, dear Patty!
    It's still not that easy to use AR watercolors also because when a painting gets more complex, it's hard to use them only and the real world watercolors procedure in those cases are different enough ...

    I find the AR watercolors engine more easy to catch if applying the darkest tones first (with less thiner), then go back with more thinner to dilute the areas that need to become medium and light tones. But there is not possible to "dry" a zone, so to get a transparency with successive light stroke as in Corel Painter.
    Each program watercolors works in the opposite direction. Painter goes from light to dark, AR goes from dark to light.

    You're absolutely right, dear Bob and in some cases I had to proceed that way insofar almost all my watercolours are on one layer only (masking and erasing to restore a dry paper part are boring and not that nice as effects). You may though paint on an additional layer and blend watercolor mode to partly solve the problem and paint from light to dark, as You normally do with real watercolours.
    The selection tool would also be quite useful, but just for the initial areas painting.
    Thank You!

    Nice to have ou here back, dear Amanda. Maybe I should have planned better and executed with some more time and patience, to get a better outcome, but it was a sort of test too (look at the dark tree texture), so I preferred to finish it quickly enough ... Thank You!

    Dear Javier, I think the picture of this most famous and the second most extensive park in Rome (among many other illustrious ones once belonging to the noblest and most ancient families) is still better than my interpretation, this time. Thank You!

    Dear Sandra, it was the last school day of my younger son (next year they will all go to a new, secondary school cycle) and we all convened there to have a picnic together and have the kids playing in that sunny, but not hot, day. Useless to say that the sky and the views in this town are different in the various seasons, but quite often outstanding and considerably charming with that unique mix of natural and monumental beauties we have the luck to have concentrated in here. Thank You!

    You mean ... like vampires, dear Katie? Or like me when I was sensibly younger? You made me think that I should probably think of taking some shots at night and see which magic creatures would populate this ancient park with roman ruins, classical architectures and fountains, a horse obstacle competitions area, the zoological garden and the Villa Borghese Museum with one of the most amazing collections of paintings in the world ... Thank You!

    What everybody said, Caesar... you brushes love the history and romance...and you are doing very well with them...Very good.

    Thank you jack, for mentioning how to work with watercolors in each program...never tried it with wc's from dark to light...interesting... must try that ...
