    "Dona on the beach"

    I work with an iMac, version 10.7 and Wacom stylus.
    I have started creating a personal toolbox just to work in watercolors mode.
    The file size is 32 x 19 cm with a resolution of 150 PPP.
    I selected a watercolor paper for the background. Then I started painting the sky with the basic watercolor brushes and blending them with the Palettes Knifes.
    Next I painted the sea similar to the sky but adding more spots.
    Finally I painted the sand trying to make it stained. During all these processes I increased and decreased the size of the brushes using the "shift" + drag right or left. I did touch-ups in the three tonal and saturation zones.
    Then I created another layer where I drew the figure using the Thin Preciser Liner, the Pencil B and the Thick Heavy Brushes 001. With the Hard Eraser 2 I was diluting areas of the line and fine-tuning its thickness.
    With the watercolor brushes and the Palettes Knife I gave a little volume to the figure trying to maintain transparency.
    During the whole process I was saving the file as PSD to keep the layers. Finally I joined them and saved as TIF.

    Para mí, esta obra es genial. Refleja dominio del cuerpo humano, sutileza de colores, texturas y mucho más...!
    Con justa razón en estas obras se ve reflejada tu experiencia como ilustrador experimentado...
    Con ansias espero ver más trabajos tuyos...

    Very nice work on the waves. Thank you for explaining the steps you took for this lovely image.

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