Re: Three Kings

Hi Peter,
Nice pictures, I like your style too.
We are starting to hear the birds chirp around here after a long winter.

Re: Three Kings

CathyH - that is excellent I should have thought to put them all together. Nice frame.
Swampy your really getting there with Art history very nice. BTW they are all types of Kingfisher.
Palms that a great smudge, you've made it look easy.

>>>Swampy your really getting there with Art history very nice.

Thanks... but....

I've been using just the history brush. I can't control that Art History brush and you never did tell me how you guys do it. All that "tight curl" "loose something else" dab, etc just seems to sling paint all over the place and out of control. I've tried with minimum settings and still get glop all over the page.

I'm having better luck using the History brush or painting with the Pattern Stamp.
