Mt Rainier Photoshop study.

Been a while since I posted on my blog. Been utilyzing Facebook for posts. This one was a study I did in Photoshop from a photo I took last week at Mt Rainier. I like using the bevel & emboss feature to simulate thickness and body in the build-up of paintstrokes. I know there is obviously a better brush feature in Painter but I don't know how to use it.

Griffith Park Lunchtime sketch

It's great to be back in town for the workshop.
I also have been working at the Dreamworks office
and wanted to keep up with my tradition of painting local
studies at lunch. This was up in the hills of Griffith Park.
