I felt like trying my hand at a still life this week. I found the image on Pixabay and used it solely as a reference. This digital painting was done completely by hand in Corel Painter® — no over painting on the photograph.
The brushes I primarily used in this painting are part of the 1895 Post Impressionism set. I also used three different blenders — real pointy blender, diffuse blur and coarse smear jitter blender. Finally, I used a couple other brushes very lightly to add grain and texture. I didn’t add those to my palette and it was mostly trial and error to get the effect I was looking for.
