I was fortunate to be able to use a Wacom Cintiq. In between my normal work, and a bit of over time, I produced this work, also learning Corel Painter 11 at the same time.
This is connected to some recent photo's I've been taking at Farlington marshes, many of which have featured a Little Egret. This 'painting' is a reaction to this, but not based on any of the actual pictures taken. Full resolution is 3000 pixels by 2011 pixels. The image below is a crop of the full res image.
