Farm Pond Pines in Fall
6"x6" digital over photograph of painting, using ArtRage
Here's another view of the pines at Great Brook State Park in Carlisle, MA. Once again it's a digital painting, using ArtRage over the original painting. Below is an intermediate version, at the stage where just the deciduous foliage was painted digitally, and the trees and sky were still showing the image of the oil painting. My initial use of this was as a way to experiment with a four seasons series of this scene, before attempting it in oils. Now, I'm starting to like the look of the digital painting. Tomorrow I'll go into how it's done in more detail.
