folding one color into higher altitudes the paint smears richness
I started this painting with smearing colors on a blank canvas in Corel Painter X. As I added another color, I saved the file and re-opened it in Adobe Photoshop to work with the Liquify Filter in order to shape color into mountains, a lake and waterfall. I’d save again and re-open in Corel Painter X. That’s when I began adding details and texture using various brushes (oil pastel, pastel, diffuser, watercolor, to name a few). Once it was where I wanted it, I saved and re-opened in Photoshop to add the Artist Filter of Watercolor. This gave it a deeper, richer appearance.
Closing the file from Photoshop, I opened in Corel PhotoPaint to finish with my dots and the addition of light on the mountain, on the waterfall and in the lake. It wasn’t quite right — so, I played with the Histogram Equalization to get the final result I was after in this painting.
