A recent painting using a similar approach to previously featured "Treason". I started by imagining a scene in my head and memorized the main ingredients. I then tried to materialize it with a quick gestural black and white concept done in Painter. I started adding color slowly and all the inherent detail, trying not to fade the initial brushstrokes. This was mostly done in Photoshop but sometimes I went back to Painter to reintroduce that "traditional" feel. When the color changes drastically in my process, it usually means I "hit" the painting with a Color Balance filter. I try to take my time finalizing these paintings to carefully evaluate them. I hope you like it!
