Photoshop Class

I'm very fortunate to have been invited by Rich Tuzon to attend an intermediate Photoshop painting class that is being taught at work by one of my favorite teachers from school, Bob Kato. Basically Bob adapted his traditional painting technique as a way to paint digitally in Photoshop. This is a 2 hour master copy (caricatured a bit) of a one of Sargent's self portraits that I painted in tonight's class.

This is nice. I like how it's very sketchy. Not too pollished. And you get a real sence of the man's character.

Nice Craig! I love how it's limited in color but you popped the highlights in the shirt and face just enough to push that dimension. I love your zoo blog too! Very relaxing.
