In my last post I scanned my pencil drawing of a purebred cattleman with his prize herd sire. I enhanced it with Photoshop. Since then I took a mix of cadmium orange and burnt amber and did a wash over the drawing to create a monochromatic painting (above). I’m still a traditionalist. I like the wash better than the digital color. The wash does a better job of creating a look and feel and maintaining subtle tones and detail. However, putting a wet brush to a completed drawing is not for the faint of heart. I understand why many artist are finishing their art with Photoshop, because you can’t undo (cmd + Z) a bad paint job.
