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.
This painting adds a level of detail which I don’t usually include in my paintings. For that reason I an including a few images which reflect the process. Please let me know what you think?
