Two Women in Venice

This was a fun painting to work on. It was totally painted in Corel Painter and then I used a texture from Melissa Gallo over it and added a mask to take away the texture where I did not want it on the women. I have been working on people painting that give the illusion of their faces but have no details to the faces. Only a hint of the womens glasses and their noses and jawlines create the illusion that your mind finishes. The reference photo was taken in Venice Italy where the people watching is beyond my greatest wishes. We will be enjoying that next May 2014 when we take an exclusive group tour to Venice for a week. Part of this was also painted with some of my FREE Cloner brushes you can download at the Digital Paint Shop. Don’t forget to also download the instructions for loading Corel Painter brushes for free.
