Skill Level: Intermediate, Advanced, Professional
Do you ever struggle to paint from a photo reference that never seems to match what you saw and felt on location? Do you find yourself being a slave to photo reference and all of the details, even when you recognize it’s not working compositionally? Have you seen others harness the power of digital tools like Photoshop but struggled to use it in your own work?
Imagine the power and confidence resulting from trying 30 different compositional ideas digitally within the same time it typically takes to try one or two changes on a large painting. Eliminate timely risks and “paint outs”. This course will help you unlock new levels of creativity, possibility, and potential within you through digital tools.
In this course, David will dive into the practical skills needed to:
- Revise and improve painting photo reference
- Feel confident with Photoshop’s powerful digital painting tools
- Better prep photos of artwork for the web and print
After teaching this process to hundreds of Illustration students at Brigham Young University, David has now refined the course to include more comprehensive information specifically to benefit traditional painters. Unlike most Photoshop courses on the market, this course focuses on more than digital art alone.
