This one is called “Almost Three.” I love working with the inky blacks, but lately I have been wanting to add color to the images. I add color and paint, but when nearly finished, I switch to adding color through various digital methods. I am also making some rice papers, which are not finished. When done, I will post an updatted version. Enjoy
Lovely subtle transitions with flowing simplicity. Nice stuff.
Thank you bunches and bunches.
This is beautiful.
Hi Skip, It looks great! I haven’t opened Painter in quite awhile. Please, If you like you can have a look at some of my non digital watercolors on my website, under portraits where there are pastels as well. Sincerely, Beth Tango http://www.bethtango.com

Hi Beth, Loved your website. I enjoyed looking at your watercolors, but I was really smitten with your sculptures. Thanks for visiting my site and commenting. Enjoy, skip
Thank you, I got burned out in painter and developed a frozen shoulder and decided to do the hands on stuff. I then graduated to clay an old time favorite. And started sculpting from my drawings! But now I want to put my drawings into painter and paint. I’m so afraid to open painter again it’s been years. I have 2012 version. I took one of your classes way back when it was the Digital Art Academy and I learned so much. Are you giving any private classes? Beth
Lovely paintings Skip! Happy New Year to you.
Thanks Valerie, Happy New Year to you, too.
Hello did you know Terry McEwan he was my dad this is Melissa
Melissa, right now I cannot remember Terry McEwan. I have found that in my old age, names can be hard to remember. Can you tell me how we would have met?
Hi Skip,thanks for all your great blog articles. They are fun to read while I’m doing all my custom stuff. Can’t wait to try some more tutorials when I get caught up.I thought I’d drop you a note, that you should check your blog roll links. I was trying to link to some of the other painter artists. some links are dead and one of the links went to a chinese porn. site, eek. I was trying to click links from my phone. hope this was helpful.MJ (another Painter feature artist!)
Hey MJ, Thanks for the comment. I have tried most of the links and they all work for me. I do know that Chrome can cause problems with the links. Were you using Chrome. Looked at your website. It is very nice. Thanks again, Skip
Hi Skip,You’re welcome, Sorry, I thought I was responding with an email, not leaving a comment on your blog. Happy painting, MJ
I am very moved by your latest work that combines beautiful brushwork with color washes on a rice paper texture. It has such a wonderful soft but rich feel to it. (I especially loved your vertical piece of the waterfall) But the flowers and the landscapes are also enjoyable to behold. I hope you continue with these explorations (and continue to share them with us!) I am thinking of purchasing Painter 2023 because of what I see on your blog, although I know there is a steep learning curve ahead. I played around with Painter 12 many years ago but never really cared for the available watercolor paper textures, as they just looked too fake. Thank you so much for all of your efforts in mastering this program, Skip. Those efforts, combined with your natural artistic gifts, bring Painter to another level. I am so inspired and delighted by your beautiful work, and am grateful to be able to see what is possible with this program.
Thank you very much for your kind words.
