The beauty of Autumn leaves dancing on air and ground, enchanting to watch. Something I never get tired of watching. The last dance of the year before winter comes to play, one last performance before retiring. This is a digitally painted work that is not a photo or photo manipulation. I used my electronic graphics tablet, a Wacom, and a wireless pen. I used the art software, Corel's Painter X to paint this. That means I drew it, chose the mediums, brush sizes, colors, mixed blends of colors, and did every brush storke. This is not the result of a program that auto converts the photo to a painting. I enjoy painting it myself and exploring what I can do and learn. I often use mediums mixes that you can not use together with real materials to get the look and results I want This one had oils, pastels, chalks, watercolor, and several other blends to get the texture it has. Often this means I wind up painting it with several layers of mediums to get the final results. Fortunately, I don't have to wait for the paint to dry, so can speed up the work. It still takes hours of work to complete it. I hope you like the reults of this one.
