Young Black-001

Normally I paint in photoshop with the paint brush tool selected but I painted differently in photoshop today! If you select the smudge tool, set it to about 97%, then click the finger painting radio button up on the upper menus, any color you have selected will paint as you stroke it on but then it will blend with the background as you smudge it further along. This has some posibilities for making oil looking paintings I think.  This painting was painted with a wacom tablet. It took about an hour but some of that time was just experimenting with the brush strokes and the smudge tool settings.  Smudge tool-97% with the fingerpainting option clicked.
