Doodling Pumpkins

Corel Painter is a very cool program. It is so awesomely cool and has so many different brushes and controls that it takes a long time to try them all out and find out what they do. Just choosing a brush to use can be a daunting task. Do I want acrylic? Watercolor? Oils? Airbrush? There are some books by Cher Threinen-Pendarvis that I'd like to get, but in the meantime I'm playing around and trying different things, and figuring out what I like. Here I was doodling pumpkins in various different mediums (media?).

I should do one of these with banjos, and then I could call it "Doodling Banjos." That would be funny. Ha.

Groan! *rolls eyes* I must make more time to use my wacom tablet that I bought myself for my birthday. Any tips? I got the Bamboo one, which I thought was kinda cool! Interestingly enough, I'm off to paint pumpkins and other Halloween/Fall designs with Jaylene, just popped in here first.

Unrelated to your topic, but I just discovered your blog from your comment link on Mimi's.

I think you have the prettiest blog out there (which doesn't seem as if it should be surprising!).
