My back works

My early painting was made with Photoshop due to my designer job I use this software all day and night :)

My first paint was this Kingfisher (Alcedo athis). All my digital paints I start whit a new document with white background. I use an 50% brown brush to finish a sketch of the bird. Next I begin to add some colour to the picture using a large brush. I’m not concerned with the details too much, just trying to pick the right colours. After I set the colours I begin to add details with a smaller hard brush with different opacity. Well, I keep doing this until I’m happy with the result of the detail and harmony of colors and forms. In the end I do a small adjusting of the three-dimensional aspect of the kingfisher with the Burn and Dodge tools.

Unfortunately the original digital file of this kingfisher I lost. Only this print what I have but due to the early inkjet technology (1999) the resolution is not as good as today inkjet prints. :(

Here are some details from the print:

This Dipper (Cinclus cinclus) I painted in 2006. Here I painted a dark background to emphasize the brownish colors of the dipper.

The size of the work is 15,74×8,48 inch at 400DPI.
