Playing with Artrage

Playing with some watercolour brushes in Artrage. I have a book to work on where I want to use digital water colour and in the past when I have wanted to use Painter it kept crashing in the middle of painting and my pc is not powerful enough to use the watercolours without serious lag time - like go and make a cup of coffee lag time between each stroke, so I have been opting to use photoshop. But alas as for me photoshop does not create great watercolour work :( . So I dusted off my Artrage, watch some tutorials and began to play. This weekend I will start the first illustration in the book project and will see if my pc will be able to handle the 8.5 x 8.5" 300dpi illos  without too many coffee breaks or head banging.
Artrage can be found here http://www.artrage.com/artrage-studiopro.html
Some tuts can be found here http://www.artrage.com/artrage-tutorials.html
A good additional tutorial ( which I am working my way through) can be found here ( also the textures talked about in the artrage tutorials) http://www.digitalartacademy.com/courses/artrage-pro-watercolor-and-mixed-media/
cheers and have a peaceful Good Friday
