Hello and thanks for viewing my paintings. I've been trying to paint for two years now and I continue to get better. I use Corel Painter for these paintings. These paintings are HAND painted, no short cuts are used. They are not traced, auto painted, cloned, or any other foolishness. No eye dropper is used I rely on my own eye to get the colors as close as I can. Ultimately mother nature is the artist, we are just observers.
