Fur Hatted Lady

I thought this one would be good to experiment on.

Original Here from SXC

I've tried a smudge and a sketch (again)

Your turn.

I do believe you can smudge in Painter, here is a pdf for painter by Fay Sirkus with a similar look

Re: Fur Hatted Lady

Peter....ANOTHER great 'find' , great smudge and a 'richard ramsay sketch plus' to follow.

Palms...love the smudge

Danny about time you were divulging the secrets of the sketching method or is it a 'Pay for Tutorial.

Had a go at painting her.... but lost something of the likeness along the way, but good practise nonetheless

Thanks all.
Gilbert if you meant my sketch, it's not a Richard Ramsay sketch, It was all my own stuff, check out my other posts for details.

Nice stuff all.

Peter
