I watched a bunch of demos this evening and was reinvigorated to try new things in Painter. This piece is quite a mess, and I may never finish it, but I had a fun time for awhile and I'm even more excited about the program. There's a wealth of potential!
I'm also excited about learning to paint well.
I'm really just excited about learning art things in general; it's really a privilege to be able to study art.
To start this piece I drew from photos from a trip to LA I took earlier this year. Someday I'll make a a real piece of that place. LA, whatever you actually are, you've maintained a magical, shining image in my mind.
