My first go with 'Painter'
Vitriolica (one of my favourite bloggers - look at her blogspot she's talented and hilarious) has inspired me to have a go with Painter. I've always preferred either real paint or more obviously digital software. However I love her work, and it is rather wonderful that you can get the natural effects without hauling out all the kit (with the added problem that the toddler is going to insist on joining in). I just drew these vases because they were the most attractive thing to hand.
