Here is a painting of an apple on my desk. I worked Ala Prima as much as possible. Painter's Mixer pad is really a great tool.

This is a portrait of my one of my best friends Justin "Buddy" Calvin. I had to use multiple references for this image and pieced them together. A picture of Justin, a tuxedo on a rack, a picture of Brad Pitt, and a planar head were used to make up the shadows for his face. 100% Corel Painter X.

Skull on my desk.

Here's a monochromatic technique that I use when I paint traditionally. Trying to make it work with Corel Painter doesn't translate 100% but it's pretty close. I recently worked on blocking out the glare from my monitor. I found that Painting digitally during the day time was a lot tougher than painting at night time. So I purchased some foamcore board and cut it to the size of my windows. Now its nightime all day in my studio.
