Nice stuff. You're probably already aware of him, but here's a link in case anyone is interested in the quality you're getting that I'm referring to (to some degree).

    thanks, yea, I love Fechin. I've used the technique before to treat oils like pastels, without realising that was the way he worked up that granular texture! That's really cool. Truthfully I sometimes use Fechin Works as an underlay with ArtRage paintings. Painting over them sort of mixes some randomness in with the digital marks as well as giving the digital strokes some extra tooth. I think I'm painting over the underlays enough to make the images my own, but I am technically stealing some textural bits to approximate an analogue feel.

    Finger Paint day 16. Didn't have much time for this one, and had to finish on the bus ride home. The bus seemed a lot more bumpy when painting little lights. There are a few psd brushestrokes thrown in before retiring this sketch, but not much.

    Thank you for sharing your beautiful painting daily! I really love your brushwork and the way you captured the city. I have just moved to Vancouver last year and I could feel the expression and atmosphere exactly. They are wonderful and I'm looking forward to seeing your next work!

    I particularly like the night landscapes a whole lot. You have a very good sense of dramatic lighting.

    Thank you so much! What brought you to Vancouver? How do you like the winter rain?

    Thank you...I enjoy doing the night ones. I can never capture them correctly in a photo so painting is the most accurate way for me to record what I see!
