Paint Study (after Whitcomb)

Here's a study based on a Jon Whitcomb girl (done with Photoshop on the Cintiq). This is mostly done with a custom brush and varying opacities of paint. I'm trying to find a method to create color transitions as well as exploring ways to mimic how the paint was laid down in the original.

(Color is a bit off due to jpeg compression and web color)

I'm blown away by this. At first glance, it looks like actual media. Hell, at 2nd and 3rd glance it looks like actuall media. Beautiful!

Looks great! The colours look great even at jpeg compression. What version of photoshop do you use?
