A New Digital Painting

I was down by the Normanskill Creek (some would call it a river) one day in early fall when I discovered these old barns. The area down here was once a little village and there are the remains of quite a few older buildings, many still in use. This image was used as the basis for a digital painting using Corel Painter. I combine several different layers, each with a different effect for the final painting. I often just start with a clone using a painting technique that seems appropriate to the image. Then I will manually paint over certain areas of the image to get a more painterly effect or to enhance a portion of the composition. I will bring the painting into Color Efx 4 or Photoshop for some final touches.
