Painting in Photoshop

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.

Still life with silver goblet and other by Winifred

Silver Goblet with Antique Bowl, Purple Brass Trimmed Glass and Grapes

I find the purple, the gold, the silver the reds, give such a sense of elegance and formality.  I enjoy the light, the bounced shadows and  the little details.  Often I stay away from  these kinds of details, but  in this case, I think it strengthens and supports the story and setting for this still life.

Still life by Winifred Whitfield

In this painting, I used looser brush strokes and increases paint texture, the reflections are vivid. Notice the ring of “five” Mandarin oranges. Reflections count in design and composition.
