    Some might think using a tracing image makes a painting easy. Au contraire. Using tools like a thick impesto brush to get that texture is tedious work. I applaud you damasocl.

    Tú tienes toda la razón.
    En un comienzo, ni siquiera usaba esta herramienta (Tracing image).
    Pero, desde hace un tiempo atrás la estoy probando y requiere, aunque cueste creerlo, bastante creatividad...

    Además los diferentes tipos de pinceles se pueden aplicar a una diversidad de temas diferentes...

    You're absolutely right.
    At first, even using this tool (Tracing image).
    But some time ago and I am trying, and required, although hard to believe, quite creative (creativity) ...

    Besides the different types of brushes can be applied to a variety of different topics ...

    Very pleasant! I love the values and the colors you've chosen. It would have been very easy to push the saturation in which case, if you did, it would have lost much of the lighting effect. I like it a lot. Well done.

    ¡Muy agradable! Me encantan los valores y los colores que has elegido . Hubiera sido muy fácil de empujar la saturación en cuyo caso , si lo hiciera, habría perdido gran parte del efecto de iluminación. Me gusta mucho. Bien hecho.

    So very beautiful, I love your painting Damaso!
    The 'contrejour' effect is sublime, perfectly lit and shadowed.

    And I agree with D Akey, more saturation would have taken away this sublime softness and lightness you achieve here.



    I'm not familiar with the 'tracing tool'... I don't think it's included in my ArtRage Studio Pro (3.5) version?

    La primera versión de AR que yo tuve (la 2.5) , y en esa versión "Tracing image" ya estaba.
    Tengo entendido que la versión 3.5 también la tiene.
    Tal vez la versión actual (4.) tenga más variedad de pinceles.
    Aparece en el menú Herramientas.

    Yes Studio Pro has the Tracing function too you will be glad to hear!
    It's pod should be on the right hand side of the screen above the colour picker.
    If it's not there it's possible that it has got turned off at some point.
    In the menubar go to; View > Pods > Tracing. It should have a little tick next to it when it's on.
