This is a digital painting of an old fence, using digital watercolor brushes. The reference image was a photograph of this fence in winter.
Artistic/Technical notes: Using digital brushes with a digital tablet (tablet surface and a stylus) is a process that takes significant self-education and practice. Almost immediately the brush can begin laying down over-saturated, darker than desired strokes. This is not unlike using physical watercolors, and yields a difficult but pleasantly familiar environment for this medium.
A painting like this can take several long days, counting restarts. But the results are very pleasing.
