My Bio
Having lived most of my life in small Finnish towns have given me an opportunity to be inspired by the country's rich nature on a daily basis. Painting and drawing have been my passion since a child. One of my fondest memory from school was a time when we spent an art class outside drawing an old iron works.

Being also an engineer keeps me intrigued by all the digital tools for creating art, but meanwhile I've always enjoyed landscapes by the old masters. This must be the reason why most of my paintings are created using digital tools, but they still look almost identical to my traditional paintings. When not in front of my computer, I like to do studies into my sketchbook, and paint using oils and acrylics. Most popular subjects in my paintings are nature and people, since it's easy to appreciate the beauty in both subjects. Being a fan of fantasy genre, sometimes a dragon or two might also end up into my paintings.

What keeps me painting is the chance to create beauty out of nothing. I like to paint in realistic style, but not just to copy what I see. The feeling of control comes from the ability to combine things you like from several sources, be it something seen outside, or something inside my head.

Sorry but I would consider that piracy. Maybe you can try contacting the author of that brush set instead?

Harbor

It's "Painting with Light and Color".

Thanks! Someone would need to suggest it as a DD first :)

I know! And it almost felt like cheating when I started painting that light by just manipulating a layer mask.
