Introducing leggings. You’ll never run out of inspiration.

Corel Painter X chalks on sandy pastel paper

As I scratched and sketched with my stylus on graphics pad it reminded me of the sound of Grumbacher and Rembrandt pastels on pastel paper that I used to work with in my ‘real media’ days. Creating this image was just as satisfying and I came away with clean hands!
