This painting was done using Corel Painter 12. I designed special brushes to produce a variety of leaf shapes, sizes and color values. The create reflections and movement in the water, I used a pallet knife, a specially designed brush to represent ripples and a blending brush which would work similarly to the brushes I use in tradition painting, Digital painting requires significant learning and practice to accomplish the look and feel of painting directly on canvas, but as you develop the skill and understanding, you soon forget that it is not a paint brush in your hand, but a stylus that controls digital brushes.
