A short rant.

I think I've finally found my digital painting software of choice after a long, arduous, and often frustrating process. Over the course of four years since I've begun my artistic journey I've tried and tested a number of digital painting programs, but none quite met my expectations. Some of these were Gimp, Krita, ArtRage, Corel Painter X3, and MyPaint which was the closest to what I wanted, but the program is still in relatively early stages of development so a lot of useful tools are still missing.

Then a couple of days ago I tried Photoshop CS6 - and loved it! For some strange reason PS had always been the last app on my list so I'd never bothered to try to use it as a painting app, plus I had a crappy old PC which couldn't run it well. I'm still learning the ropes and experimenting with different brushes, but you can expect some new Photoshop digital paintings in my gallery soon.

Rustic Easter Eve by agapetos
Rustic Easter Eve
Oil on canvas, 70 x 50 cm

I tried to imagine how simple, rural people in 19th century Slovenia celebrated Easter. All the reference props etc. I used were real period items so the scene should look legit. In regard to technique, I tried to follow and learn from the methods of Renaissance painters.

Hehe... no problem, the drawing is wonderful. That's one of the reasons we're here on dA — to support each other.
