Blue Heron

I’m finally starting to get comfortable with Corel Painter. This one was a bit difficult to get started. Finding a brush that gave good brush strokes and the feathers effect took some time. Thanks again to Fay’s Master Brush collection I found a good brush (Feathers1).

I still need to work on the painting workflow but I think I hit all the stops with this one. To finish this one off I added a rough artists paper texture, glazed with an acrylic glazing brush and then applied impasto paint effect to make the brush strokes stand out.
