Painting with Photoshop for BEGINNERS with Ellen Kawadler

Painting with Photoshop for BEGINNERS with Ellen Kawadler

Ever wanted to give your images a real painterly look without the use of plugins. Don’t have the patience to work on an image for days. Want the easy way out. Then this workshop is for you!
Yes, we will use brushes and we will paint our images but with the use of layers and selections the process will be simplified so anyone can paint like a pro and best of all complete your masterpiece in a short amount of time.

We will start from the very beginning by setting up your painting workspace, loading and setting options for the brushes, and using of the mixer brush with different photoshop brushes for distinctive effects. You will learn how to paint a background from your image and different ways to change this up. Then we will complete a simple image from start to finish.

You will need to have Photoshop, preferably the most recent version, and some knowledge of selections and layers. Please bring your laptops with the latest version of Photoshop CC installed and a tablet if you have one.

I will be providing an image that we will use for practice, information on downloading brushes and some other preconference materials. You will also receive the complete PowerPoint presentation loaded with step by step instructions and video tutorials.
