First Painting with the Cintiq

Ok so here's my first painting with the Cintiq. I love Renaissance art so I chose an Andrea del Sarto painting ("Portrait of a Man") from a colour brochure I had in my library. I'm a total newbie with Corel Painter 11... but I just plunged right in, starting things off with an underdrawing in brown chalk (see above). I then basically experimented with the Artist's Oils and Real Bristle brushes... I don't exactly remember all the ones I used but definitely the Real Flat Opaque and some Blender brushes). I mixed the colours directly in the painting without using the Mixer palette. Don't you just love those realistic-looking blobs of oil paint in the bottom image?? :)
