just a beautiful lily, these might be good subjects also to drop into backgrounds.

Oddly, I don't take many pictures that are conducive to this treatment, I am too fond of the Kitchen Sink and I fail to isolate subjects. I am more likely to use the methods, if I ever learn them, to cobble a bunch of unrelated stuff together and paint it into one far fetched scene using the paint to disguise the fact that none of that stuff was ever together at all.

For now, I am just plodding along painting the backgrounds and the wretched models. I'm gonna try a couple of my own when I run out of models which might be in a week or two.

I've almost figured out what they want for backgrounds at this point. But I haven't figured out what I want, which is the question. Looking ahead, learning to use the wet brush looks useful though difficult to master. I think that ought to be among the first lessons they teach after the intro.

This one's a little odd. I may have to run it through a filter that does Suerat type pictures for the heck of it.
