Playing with a new toy.jpg

I recently got a Wacom intous 3 drawing tablet and am in the learning stages of using it.
I was experimenting with making some digital backgrounds.
This image is made up of a digital background from a disk of 600 backgrounds.
I opened it in Corel Painter Elements which came bundled with the tablet.
Once opened I chose a brush (Pallet knife) and painted over the background forming the wavy lines. They were set to about 50% opacity.
The darker wavy lines on the right happened by accident as I am still getting used to the brush.
I thought I was finished but the brush had a mind of it's own.
It actually gave the image a tunnel effect.
Finally I added a green screened image of Bill Carpenter and this was the result

other sizes: small medium original

Love that background! I've been using a Wacom for years, couldn't go back to a mouse now!
