“Photography came out of painting, and now it is returning to it,“ said British artist David Hockney. In this 4 day workshop, you will learn a practical step-by-step workflow for using the powerful paint program Corel Painter 2019 and a Wacom tablet to create expressive paintings based on your photographic imagery.
This workshop will teach you all the important basics: how to import a photo, how to understand, choose and control brushes and art materials, how to pick color, how to use cloning and tracing paper, how to work with layers, and how to save and export your imagery.
Jeremy shares techniques, tools and insights from his more than twenty-five years of experience and expertise as a professional artist using the Painter program.
His teaching style is lively, encouraging, enthusiastic and full of positive energy! This workshop will empower you to create beautiful painterly expressive works of art from your photos that reflect your unique interpretation and viewpoint.
