    Hi Johan, Yes, that is what I was suggesting. Looking at them together though I have to agree with Aged P about the lighting making it look more like a wall in the second one. I would be in favor of lighting control in ArtRage for this reason and others. I realized Johan that in my enthusiasm for the way you presented it on your sidewalk, I had not commented on your actual chalk drawing. Please allow me to mention now that I love the scene and the colors you used. I can almost hear a lonley bird call across the water.

    Question: Why delete your files?
    Be well,

    Great Idea, Hypomedi!
    The scene you created is very peaceful.

    I especially like the older tree that has been pruned back. It looks like it is rich with history & could tell many storys of years gone by...reflecting the the whole atmosphere of Europe & the Netherlands - which is known for water, beautiful sunsets, rich history, great architecture, Milestone caves & even ruins unearthed of an anchient city dating back thousands of years from the Romans, I believe? Your in a painters paradise! 8)

    Thanks all!

    "Question: Why delete your files?"

    Yes why?.... After saving the finishing product I always delete the files I worked with.
    just a habbit I guess, I have room enough on HD.

    Maybe a good idea to keep also.

    Hi Johan. I love chalks. This is a beautiful piece. I didn't notice the effect of ArtRage's default lighting (untrained eye). The first image you posted was very pretty, but when you posted the second - wow! It's so dramatic now, with the artwork picking up the texture of the photo. The colours seem deeper and richer too. It's just lovely, I really like it. Thanks for posting!

    I'm sure I could have done a better job with the background if I had not deleted
    the original files. :lol:
    I am now just trying different brushes to see what I like
    the most.
    I was supprised to see what I have done with the chalk.
    Because I have compleet no graphic background.
    Just started a week ago with ArtRage, never have painted in my entire life..

    Johan
