Today I tried out some digital painting programs because Photoshop really isn't made to paint in, and every so often I need to add to some real-world art digitally.
I ended up realising that Corel Paint is the way to go - you can import full layered PSD files to work with. So here is my first attempt - pretty clumsy. I just clicked on anything that looked interesting and scrubbed it on the screen. Note the stray frizz on the side of the scarf where I accidentally used a weird huge bristly dry brush.
The dog is real-life watercolour, the hat stand is inked in Photoshop, the hats and scarf are Corel Painter.
I'm actually quite impressed.
I'll tidy this and add some more scanned bits and bobs before it's allowed into the book.
