Never Hold Back

This is my first effort at translating "real" painting lessons to digital painting and collage. This is the first lesson for A Year of Painting taught by Alena Hennessy. I used papers created by Tangie Baxter to cut out the shapes and create the background. And I added a gesso scatter of Tangie's and a white swirl created from Studio Rebecca.

The painting was done in ArtRage and the collage work was done in PS CC 14.

My pen work is really stiff. I hope I will get better with the Bamboo tablet and pen with practice. Practice. Practice. Practice.

Since I've been painting away most of the day, I think it might be time for me to change out of my PJs and join the real world.
