In this scenario I scanned a drawing from my sketchbook which I thought had some potential. Ahh, I love potential! Once you see it you become gripped with vision which then carries you to the conclusion of your painting! Haha, I've tried so many times to work through those paintings that go bad from the beginning and they never get finished. ...unless of course, I see that potential along the way!
From the scanned image I brought it into Painter 8 and painted away. I remember learning a lot from this painting...but I can't quite remember what at the moment.
