Wow, Paul,

Been a long time fan of your work and this one is just amazing. Very simple, graphic, yet so narrative.
Just awesome, awesome work!!

Hey, Paul. What did you do that in? And you said in a post a while ago that Painter X's oil brushes were clunky, so what version are you using?

Thanks for showing us the work!

Best regards,

Yeah, I think the new Painter 10-11 oil brushes are cool and do lots of stuff, but in grand Painter fashion, they over complicated it.

I did this painting in Painter 8..which is basically Painter 7.
