This is the skull/fortune cookie picture that I will knock some texture into for the Syracuse San Francisco picture. Have been working textures into the image (yesterday's blog)--to discover (after I over gilded the lily twice--3.5 hrs. later) that you just need a "little something" versus hitting the poor image with a hammer. Tonight,I am pulling out the paints and work out a few ideas that you poor souls will get the chance to participate in the generation. I figure that the paint is going to get me closer before I start really "working" my St. Francis image. Have to install "Painter" again as it might get me closer with texture etc. That simple stuff is what Painter is good for...not rendering images. Also have some new cool textures that I just found that might work too. The fog and drizzle have cleared...and we have a big, bluesky day.
