The original was a small acrylic, I used a transparent setting in my graphics program so I could trace around the acrylic, once I got it the way I wanted I deleted the acrylic from the digital file. The beauty of digital painting is that you can move things around as many times as you want without ruining anything. I liked the composition of the digital painting better than the acrylic and used it for my watercolor.
Thanks for that Liz. I'm exploring mediums that don't require a lot of room as I'm moving in to my RV pretty soon as soon as we close on the house. Digital and watercolor might be the thing. All I would need is a pad of paper right? The canvases will have to go.
Wowza! I love it, but then, I'm a sucker for a snow scene.
