    Let There Be Light - Old Lantern

    I spotted a cool lantern on a wall at the Columbus Zoo (Columbus, Ohio). I took a picture of it years ago. Using that as a reference, I painted this. I found a cool way to make textures... "Easy Dirt" in ArtRage. I love experimenting with things to figure out how I have to work to make something photo-realistic or more "painterly" (as my wife calls it).

    If you have not tried using "Easy Dirt", give it a shot. I did the stucco wall and the bricks with it. To make the bricks look 3-D, I varied the color and rounded off corners and edges. The bezel was airbrushed, then I used the pallet knife to blend. I also used the pallet knife on parts of the metal hanger and in other areas, the oil brush with little daubs of paint setting.

    Most excellent work... yes I mostly start my work with some of the great sticker sprays especially in the art brush section... and easy dirt is one of my favorites as well.

    Thank you all for your feedback. I've really been hooked on ArtRage. Although I did a piece a few days ago where I used Sketchbook Pro, Corel Painter, and ArtRage all three on the composition to complete the work. Every application has its strengths and weaknesses. I still think that nothing does texture like ArtRage.

    I was thrilled to discover the "Easy Dirt" hiding among other tools. I can think of so many uses for it.
