Event Description

Can you REALLY paint traditional media convincingly in Photoshop? Absolutely YES! Especially in the fall when this workshop is set to rock your creative world! 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-depth in projects in this hands-on workshop led by award winning photographer and artist/illustrator Jack Davis (who knows a thing or two about Photoshop as well ;).

And all these projects will start with a photograph - whether one you, or a friend (or Jack), has taken. These photographs (once we have first “enhanced” them in Photoshop) will be the “palette” of colors, tones and shapes that we will use in creating our masterpieces. And that means for this class 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”! Both landscapes and portraits will be created and completed in class so bring your images and your virtual smock and be ready to PAINT!
