Did you use a Photoshop Charcoal Brush to get that great texture? Nice green!
Thanks! The color work was done with Corel Painter IX, the "brush" for most of it was a hard pastel, and the surface is one of my absolute favorites: pebble board. (I loved this paper, back 20 years ago when you could buy it at a U.S. art store.)The green isn't really green! It's orange-yellow mixed with black. The dark orange makes a natural, soothing compliment to the light blue-violet.
