    It looks terrific. I can spot paint on the carpet.

    We need BIGGER to get a good look!

    Looks like a nice painting...but it is so small I can barely see it
    Try to see as many angles of vision as possible...no single one of us has a "handle" on the whole picture.

    Winter Pool

    Thanks everybody for your lovely comments. I"ve still got a lot to learn yet, must read the manual.
    I work with a wide screen TV, and realize now my painting must look small on a smaller screen esp. on I Pad. Is it possible to resize a finished painting?

    Under the edit menu select "resize painting".

    Like many graphics programs, resizing UP has issues to deal with, but experiment there.

    Work with backup copy. Pay attention to your pixels per inch - you may want to experiment with various settings depending on just how much you up-size.

    See the example image: up-sized in AR 300% and set at 300 PPI.



    By the way; you're kidding right; your very first ever digital painting? This seems a bit (quite a bit) too accomplished to map those words to this image. But then, wonders never cease. It's a lovely image.

    Winter Pool

    Thankyou very much for your quick reply byroncallas, I will give this a try. This was actually my second painting, I lost the first attempt in the layers somehow when I was halfway through. I only purchased AR
    this week and find it superb. I"ve painted in the real medium since I was a child​.
