Oiled over painting. Trying out my new software! :) First attempt maybe I can get better at this -- it is a little hard! :)

Have a great day!

Thanks you guys! ;) I used Corel 9 . I'm really not that great at it yet but getting there little by little the program is pretty complicated with all those brushes and mediums. But, it is really different. :)
