How to Paint a Face

I use PhotoShop quite a lot in my efforts to create traditional art, mainly by putting photographs up on my monitor and zooming in and out when I draw on paper or canvas. Generally speaking however, I find Copmputer art either "too easy" if you do simple things and "too difficult" if your needs are more demanding.

At the same time, computer programs can provide a great way to "doodle" and explore ideas.

Here is how I drew the "Tango Lady" shown above using ArtPad:

Have fun!

I like this face. Interesting too, using a paint program to create "paintings", something I hope to explore more. You give me a good nudge forward here.
