Can you REALLY paint traditional media convincingly in Photoshop (especially in the new CS6)? Absolutely YES! Easily? YES! Quickly? Your head will spin! To expressively paint, where your emotion, as well as your mind, get to come out and play, is one of life’s greatest pleasures. Especially when you can use a computer, a Wacom tablet and Photoshop to do all the laborious set up (and clean up!) that is typically involved with traditional medias like oils, watercolors or even pastels. All of these different media types will be demonstrated and simulated in this evening seminar led by award winning designer and artist/illustrator Jack Davis (who knows a thing or two about Photoshop as well ;).

And all these projects will start with a photograph – yes, Jack will be cloning sheep that night! These photographs (once first “enhanced” in Photoshop’s Adobe Camera Raw) will be the “palette” of colors, tones and shapes that we will use in creating the masterpieces. And that means for these techniques no expert drawing skills are needed – though certainly if you can paint and draw traditionally then you will have an advantage when it comes to creatively “drawing outside the lines”! Come ready to be trained, entertained and inspired!
