Digital painting made with ArtRage printed on Cold Pressed Arches Paper: This painting was used for the 2004 Capri 14.2 Nationals on their t-shirts and Becky Thaylor and Scott Tobin’s wedding cake. I used and early version of paint on a photo they provide, but I had to change their sail numbers to go with their boat. We get to race against them almost every Thursday night during the summer in Marina Del Rey. What a great pair they make!

I am semi retired and love to travel with my 9X12 #140 Strathmore pad, my Sharpie Ultra Fine ink pen and five or six sticks of pastels or acrylics to color in my “finds” Sometimes I get real lucky and my wife Dawn will take some pictures I can use later. I seem to always be able to give some kind of sketch to my subjects or those bystanders who desperately want to give me some advice.

    Really like the effects Randy.

  • Thanks Jim at some settings these digital brushes make it had to tell from wet water color. I think they are now blurring the edge of the pixels?
