I have been experimenting lately with new digital painting techniques. I love the look and feel of oil paints as they lusciously mix and ride the surface of the canvas

In the first painting Breaking the Surface I brought that creamy but controlled look to autumn leaves as they were sinking into the depths of the pond. Look closely and you can see the richness in the paint.

In Old Fashioned Foliage I wanted an old masters look with rich muted colours and an impasto effect. 

I am really looking forward to experimenting more with these two techniques and see where it will lead. A bonus is I don't have any paint to clean up.
