A Painter tutorial
Nobody pretends painting is an easy thing to do,
or something you can learn without lots of work and time..
but I promise you: the computer will make this
task easier and faster, and you can really enjoy yourself in the process!
Lets paint a detail of a painting in a very easy
way, painting on a photograph.
I have used this method with my art students,
and they love it! Besides
I see how they quickly learn to manage colors
and the composition.
I will prefer a very common photography,
better than a beautiful
picture, as the beauty must be delivered by the
hand of the artist!
1.- Resize picture to 2000x1800, in order to have
plenty of space
2.- Choose brush: big wet oils, opacity:
80%, size:1.2, circular
3.- Color variability, about 30%
4.-Choose the dropper tool, now just pick a color
and begin painting om the same area,
the variatibility will do the job, and your
skill will decide the rest!
Here you can see the basic tools I have used painting
I have painted on the upper right corner of the picture...pick
to study in detail.
Now the leaves are nearly finished..
I dissolve the background using the existing colors...
The detail is finished.
Now I use the effects for the final touch!
