Sometimes I miss painting in a traditional way, but my studio is not the best place to work with oils and a big canvas... So I like to keep the traditional techinques when using photoshop (without fussion layers, masks and other digital procedures).
This is a fun exercise to keep up color skills: Just one layer, natural brushes and dynamic opacity to blend tones.
I hope you all enjoy it. Have a great 2011!
Thanks Mai for the inspiration ;)
