A New Distraction

I recently upgraded my PSP program and as part of the upgrade I received Corel Painter Photo Essentials 4.  I am having way too much fun playing with this program.  Prior to entering med school, I worked in an Art store, and I began to dabble in watercolor paintings.  While I acheived a level of comfort working with the medium, I could never really advance beyond the beginner level.  This program allows me to "paint" what I am capturing in my photos in a way I never will be able to in real life....

And this one:

It has the ability to do paintings, drawings, pastels, etc... if you have it, I would love to see what you can create... I just got it yesterday, but I myself can't wait to see how much I will be able to increase my creative abilities!

These are wonderful, Veronica, I love the watercolor effect of the beach!
Try youtube.com, to learn new techniques in the software programs that you have.  Do a search on tutorial in your programs you use.  Thats where I find some really fun stuff.

Don't forget to check out the Challenge blog at the end of the week for the next photo challenge..Ü

Thanks for visiting my journal!!!
