This will be an introduction workshop into the world of Photoshop painting. You will learn how to use all the tools in Photoshop to create a work of art or simply do corrective painting. The class will cover the difference between the brush tool and the mixer brush. You will learn how to use the blend modes using the brush tool, and how to add highlights and shadows easily using the brush tool. The class will also cover when and how to use the smudge tool, and discuss how easily you can enhance eyelashes.
You will learn how to use the mixer brush for corrective painting, and dive into lighting patterns, blemishes, eyeglass glare and stray hairs that can be fixed easily. You will learn where you should add highlights to the face without changing the shape of your clients face. The class will also go over the process of adding elements to your portrait to enhance the story of your portrait. Some examples will be adding a flower to a girls hand or a bird and blending it easily.
This is a hands on workshop. Your instructor, Karen McCall, will provide you images that you can work on together, or bring one of your own. Requirements for the course include an updated Wacom tablet. You should also have latest version of Photoshop. Bonus material: brushes that the class will work with. You will leave this fun and informative workshop ready to paint!
