Dark Mountains

This image began as a drawing on Bamboo Fun and went through more processes than I can remember. Generally, I choose lighter colors but something about the darkness of this piece fascinated me – it reminds me of volcanic flow under a watching sky. Is it far too dark?

A couple of programs I consistently use are Irfanview for resizing and occasional edits, FrameFun to create the finish, and Adobe Photoshop Elements 5 which came with the Bamboo Fun.

It's been almost a year since I've used water, color and paper to produce a painting. The computer permits a surprising amount of creative fun without the hassle of removing paint from the walls or cabinet top.
