Painting With Photoshop


Sandra Pearce
Course Number: 26
Level: All Levels

Painting: the practice of applying paint, pigment, color or other medium to a solid surface.  The medium is commonly applied to the base with a brush, but other implements, such as knives, sponges, and airbrushes, (plus computers) can be used.  The final work is also called a painting.  This sums up what Sandra teaches.

Welcome to the world of Photoshop Painting with Sandra. You are invited to step into the world of great possibilities by turning up the dial and learning to paint using Photoshop.  The difference between traditional art and digital art are vast and varied.  There is one common link, the knowledge and skill needed to create true art, regardless of the medium.

Not only does Sandra have a working knowledge of traditional and computer-based art, but she also has experience teaching each form as well.  She will touch on embellishing your artwork, from Computer to canvas.  She feels photographers already feel comfortable with the tools used in Photoshop.  This enables them to concentrate on the techniques of painting rather than learning a new program.

We all want our business to grow and prosper. Sandra will be teaching how to bring out that artist you have been waiting for.  You will be learning to use the mixer brush, smudge tool and the paint brush. She will be teaching the different painting modes and how each one adds more depth to your paintings.

You will also learn how painting can bring magic to your retouching skills such as removing glass glare, blemishes, stray hairs, and a multitude of other things.   The class will cover the financial aspects of adding an art line.

After many years of Photoshop Painting Sandra has simplified the learning process and believes anyone can learn to paint using the computer as their tool.
