I still use Painter Essentials 4, because many brushes are not available in the newest version, hence why I didn't purchase it.
This was done with Essentials 4 as I do 98% of my artwork., including fashion illustrations and designs, cartoons and comics.
I've been drawing all my life, but I think I don't do well as a painter.
I still use PE4- features in it I like that are not in newer versions.
Your painting has some nice colors and blending, and I really like the sky.
As Ron says your painting is showing lots of potential and if you look on you tube there are quite a few videos on there to help with Essntials 4 ps: - have you watched the videos in the program itself via the "Welcome" screen?
I disagree. As far as I can see you do know how to paint. More, please, and welcome to the Café.
