Lois, that's terrific that you're working with Corel Painter.
Painter is my main "workhorse" in terms of creating artwork. I've been using it since version 2, in 1994. Of course, I also work in Photoshop. And Illustrator can't be beat for vector-based art. But, as far as I'm concerned, nothing beats Painter for simulating natural media!

Hi Lois,

Thank you for not taking offense at my message, which could have been worded a bit less stridently.
Yes, we are in agreement.
And I wish you all the best with your studies at SMFA in Boston.
Here on The Research Cooperative, I hope to see more of your wonderful watercolors!
With best wishes,
David Purnell (in Minnesota)

Lois, I love your watercolors!

But, "medical illustration"?
I don't mean to be cruel, but you apparently have no idea of the training a medically-trained medical illustrator goes through to be able to legitimately make the claim of being a medical illustrator. Check out the website of the Association of Medical Illustrators:
