Photo Shop painting

 Here is my old lady on a scooter in the beginning painting stage.  I scanned her into the computer and started to play with her in photo shop. 

I am almost done with the first layer.  I am painting over everything.  I was able to change a few things that where not quite working,  the wheels of the scooter kind of looked a little crooked.  On the second layer I will put in more detail.

My New Wacom Tablet Yeah!

This is the first painting that I have finished with my new Wacom tablet.  I really enjoy the freedom that comes with working digitally. How great to just scan in my sketch and then paint away.  I always liked my sketches better, they seemed more fun.  Something always seemed to get lost after I transferred them on to the water color paper.

The boy with the box is a work in progress.  The original sketch looked a little empty, so I added the window in Photoshop.  How great is this, if I decide I don't like the window poof its gone or the color of his socks.  I can get used to this.   I think working digitally will allow me to be more free and creative.  I know I still have a lot to learn, but this is a start.
