It should have been easier to draw the swishing hat but somehow I found this as you can see difficult–and yet this man was almost never seen without a hat–even when the horse was speeding off and not entirely in control. I need Heather nearby for she is so good at drawing expressive hands, hands, perhaps tell us more about the person than most details. Perhaps it will take more years than I have to learn but even making the effort is becoming rewarding. Fran
Another practice drawing: This time I know I must re-draw the eyes but I thought
I would share the beginning with you. Fran
Can we know the woman behind the veil?
Painter of the desert, done by using airbrushes and blender from Corel Painter
Crone Fran works on her magic informer while watching the morning sun on Rainbow Beach
This is the most difficult work I have attempted in Corel. I used a pastel for the initial drawing, then oil pastels to do the painting. This enabled me to use the blender. I found getting the lights correctly particularly hard in the small format so the result is not what I would expect to do with a lot more practice. Fran
This is another practice session trying both brushes and blender and using a bucket. Fran
