Succulent Colors

Succulent Colors
feeling lemon lime…
bursting out in bold flavors,
succulent colors

This was fun to paint. I started with the background — added colors and then using the Blender Brush in Corel Painter X, smeared and blended the colors into one another to create a circle and swirl effect. I sketched the lemon and lime directly over the background and painted using Worn Oil Pastel variant from the Art Pen. Then I saved and closed the file. In Adobe PhotoShop I opened the file and added light to highlight several areas in the piece. Completed the painting by adding my infamous ‘dots’.
