World of Color

April 27, 2011

I did this sketch of my 3 friends one night at Carly’s downtown. I really kind of liked this one and wanted to give it some color, but I’m a lousy painter and was afraid that if I took a brush to it I would ruin it. So I downloaded a 30 day trial of Corel Painter and used the watercolor feature to paint this drawing on the computer.

What great software! It really was just like painting in real life, except that I could undo every brush stroke I regretted. Which, okay, that really kind of defeats the whole point of painting, especially with watercolor, but what can I say? I am straight up namby pamby when it comes to color. But maybe this could be a stepping stone to the real thing. Or it would have been, had the 30 day trial not already expired.
