    #3 Exactly. It's so realistic it's a thrill to use, once you learn how to use it.

    #2 hehee sounds fun to try. maybe someday I will " have time " (as if time could be owned ... ) But this was relevant information about the technoque and price-range. So did I understand right, that the actual first original "oil on canvas" is not physical, but painted with that program's feature "paint like oil on canvas " ?

    #1 Hi Tiina, thx for taking the challenge. The painting is freehand oil on canvas, done using Corel Painter 2015®. You are very astute in your observation of the white hair-lines. I'm still learning to perfect the "natural" lift of physical brushes. Other than the technical aspect of using this expensive program, I really don't miss using physical media at all. No paint, no smell, no mess, canvas, storage and other "historical" issues. It's so clean. Framed purchases for my clientele are "print-on-demand". The giclee' print quality is almost indistinguishable from a physical original, and It affords a much lower price point for an original piece. At trade shows I label them using the IFPDA definition "Original Print". For example, a 40" x 30" framed original print sells for $CDN 1,800, where if it were a physical original my price would be approximately $4,000. I encourage all artists to try the program. It's free for 30 days, and works best with a Wacom Tablet and pen. When I first started using it, I began giggling like a school kid. Ha ha!

    Hmmm .... ! Tricky ! The obvious first quick answer would be watercolor with gouache, but because there are so many interesting new techniques available, I am suspecting this is a trick question. When examined more closely, my attention is in the white hair -lines, which seem to have been drawn with computer aided program. So that's why I am guessing, that this might be mix technique originally, then photo taken, then clicked oil painting effect, then finished with Photoshop ...? This is guess numero 1. How many guesses ?
