Painter 12 – Great Program

Sawadee Khrap

Just started to try my hand at painting again – What a great program Corel Painter 12 – The Leading Digital Art Software.

PAINTER 12

Try it out  – I am sure you will find it is well worth the money – It will open new artistic doors you had only imagined.  Try it first but I am sure you will buy it as I did.

So I tried my hand at a Chalk painting (Drawing) of a photo taken of a old friend of mine in San Francisco. By old I mean several years ago when I lived there – Roughly done and with a single square chalk brush it has started me back to checking out some of my older photos to see which would be a good candidate to turn into a painting.

I am just starting to experiment with its impressive array of brushes, paper textures, paints, oils, watercolors and more and will start producing better projects in the future to show.   Although it’s very crude I hope you enjoy.

My First Painting – “Dreaming”

Here’s my first painting

“Dreaming”

Using Painter 11

 

Please tell me what you think – comments needed

 

I am just starting my paintings, getting to know Corel Painter 11 and PhotoShop processing.  I think this is the medium I want to work in.  PhotoShop allows me to develop my themes and then I can use Painter to bring them to life.  What a great combination – total control – NOW I just have to learn how to perfect it.

I could really use some inspiration and ideas of subjects to paint.  I hope my studio will help me in this area too.  If you see something interesting,  please send me a copy to study, I would love to see what you find exciting and then use it to learn how to produce different effects or moods.  I really look forward to hearing from you. 

Thanks
