This painting is an interpretation of a photographic source I did using my Artists' Brushes for Photoshop CS5.

John's Artists' Brushes for Photoshop CS5 and John's Dry Media are each available for just $19.95. If you have Photoshop CS5 and are into painting, this will be the best investment you can make!
