I had just received a Wacom drawing tablet for Christmas (I have wonderfully
understanding parents) and was fiddling with
it one day, just to see what it could do. As a child, I took Japanese
ink painting classes when we were stationed in Hawaii,
so I determined to see whether I could replicate the process digitally.
I hope your monitor can pick up the recreated rice
paper pattern in the background. This was done entirely in the computer.
To find out how I did this, please see the
tutorial that I also created.
