Winter Fence

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.
