Wishing I was there …

Painter | August 18, 2005 | By

Well, here I sit trapped indoors, when I’d really rather be vacationing. But I’m sort of on-call doing graphics for one of our projects, yet I’m not needed every single minute. What to do with idle hands?
The photo that this is derived from came in today from an art list I’m on, so I decided to take a crack at it with Painter. I started the way I would if I was painting in acrylic or oil, with a rough sketch, then underpainting, then adding detail until it looked vaguely beachlike. Kinda. Sorta. Hey, it’s been a long day.

    Hi Karen,
    I thought it was a photo at first glance you’re getting very proficient with Painter. I’m going to have to give it a try one of these days. Your new blog looks great. So glad you got rid of the frames.
