Day 49. Theme Day: Canada!

It was my turn to pick a theme. I chose CANADA. Some thing to be proud of, especially
today with the final day of the Olympics in Vancouver. The Canadian Mens Hockey Team
beat the USA 3 to 2 in overtime. ( Iginla making the pass to Crosby to score the winning goal.)

This was a fun little exercise. I threw in the size format and a purpose for the image. To have it up on our Facebook Group page.

I think I've come a long way in almost two months, learning more about what I can do with
my graphic software tools. I like taking on a challenge, we gain our own rewards.

Thanks for looking! Go Canada Go!

Years ago I experimented with textural exploration, using water colour paints.
It was messy, but produced some amazing results.
These two images are done on Painter and is comparable to the old technique.
The detail views are very cool. GarSeeYa!!!
