A strong understanding of natural color and lighting is an important asset to any artist or painter. In this 6 session workshop, Mike Hernandez will share his methods for using Photoshop to develop painting compositions and designs.
Through demos and lectures, he will show you how to address every aspect of your work, from value, composition design, shape and color hierarchies, paint texture, brushwork, and more.
This digital painting workshop is valuable for all artists, regardless of medium. A basic understanding of painting is desired but not necessary to participate in this class. There will be demonstrations in composition, shape, color, and lighting design, and much more.
This is a great class for anyone interested in painting and who would like to learn how to capture a rich sense of natural lighting and color into their artwork.
