More experimentation with effects.
I've used maybe ten percent of the tools on the
Painter program. It can do so much and there are
so many little quirks to get used to...it can be frustrating
when it won't do what I'd like it to do, but that is part of
learning.This is the only way to improve, practice and
draw. Work at it a little at a time, and you will see
results, one drawing at a time.
