Recently, I decided that I would learn to paint in Photoshop. I have been painting in Corel Painter for many years. I am currently using Photoshop CS6, but the mixer brushes I use are available in CS5 as well. For all of those who have resisted learning to paint because you did not want to learn a new and complex program to paint with, this may be the way for you to go. I would have to say that painting in Photoshop “Rocks”. I am able to create beautiful and expressive images in so many styles. Some are shown below.

You can see the beginning of this process below – the still life set up next to my easel. The painting developed and ultimately I had it trimmed with a saw, narrower than the nearly square beginning.
