Playing with Painter

I’ve just downloaded the demo of Painter IX after reading it’s rave revue in How Magazine. I’ve played with Painter 8 a bit in the past. It’s fun. I own a pretty big Wacom tablet (my very first eBay purchase!), so it really does _feel_ like I’m painting.

But it’s much more than that. Painter IX lets me do things I never could in real life – paint relatively well! Sounds cheesy, I know. But I’ve just spent the past hour or so having a terrific time. I haven’t had fun sitting in front of my computer in some time, so this is a very welcome relief.

This is what I’ve come up with so far:

 Painting of Ella

  1. Wow! That’s incredible, Peter! I’ve gotta give this program a shot. Will it work well for those without a tablet?

    I’ve been meaning to pick one up; this may be the excuse! 😉
