This is a digital painting I did of a local horse that i see sometimes out in a field. I've taken a number of photos for reference for paintings so far, as the photos show flies in the shots that ruin them for posting. When the weather changes & he flies are gone for the winter, I'll get some shots to post. Meanwhile, painting works well. I used an electronic drawing tablet wireless pen stylus, a Wacom, and Corel's art software, Painter X to paint this work. It is not the result of an auto convert to artistic effect program that you can do. I prefer to do the work myself. That means I draw it, chose the medium for the software to mimic, pick the colors, brush sizes, textures, to blending colors as I paint. It still takes many hours to complete, just no drying or clean up time.
