    Mountain Walk

    My first endeavor with ArtRage. A bit of a learning curve coming from traditional oils. I'm currently using a Dell Venue 11 Pro MS tablet. I'm upgrading to a Surface Pro 3 i7 soon. I'm hoping the i7 and extra 4 gig of RAM will be more efficient. The Dell's i5 freezes frequently yielding unwanted brush strokes.... LOL. Thank goodness for [Undo]. The piece is 16" x 20" on Portrait Smooth canvas, using the Winsor Newton Pallet.

    Welcome to Art Rage!

    This has such a luscious pallet of colours, and great perspective. Well painted!

    Beautiful colours and there is such a lot to look at in the painting. I like the way you have used the brush for the foreground fir trees - is it a sticker spray brush?

    Oh God of homeless things, look down
    And try to ease the way
    Of all the little weary paws
    That walk the world

    Delightful colors although they look like they're from another, heavenly world.

    @ Enug, I used the sticker 'Fan Brush' as well as the 'Dirty S tippler', both from the Art Supplies threads. In traditional oils I would paint these textures with a #6 bristle fan, loading the paint on top of the brush, hold with paint up and flick down. It took me a bit of playing to get the same effect with AR.

    I agree with the color comments, I always brush mixed my colors, which as you know, yields different hues/values with each reload. I'm still trying to prefect that approach with AR. This is a really dark piece in parts and a bit over saturated; but it's a good benchmark. I'll repaint this again after I've got some AR hours under my belt.
    Warm Regards,
    Bill
