Playing with Watery Trilobites

Been really enjoying painting with my new ArtRage 4 - and I find myself just addicted to messing with the images with various filters in the Halftone app afterward. 

So, that painting I made the other night when I couldn't sleep?  This one?

Yeah; underneath some of the layers it actually started out as more of just a watercolour. 

The shape is a bit different because I painted two layers and then hid this one.

And then I decided to email it to myself, save to my iPhone and play with it in Halftone. 
Here's some watery trilobites. 

I've really been enjoying black, grey and stark white images lately. 

If you haven't tried ArtRage before, I highly recommend it: the watercolours and inks have me hooked and the oil mixing is amazing. Perfect for traditional painters making a transition to digital.

Thanks Nathaniel! I was thinking the same. I have some tiny square St Armand paper that I'd like to try some of them on.
