A departure from my usual chiaroscuro still life digital paintings, I want to offer a little taste of Spring in my collection. This a photograph that I shot on February 16, 2017 and gave the image a n Impressionistic all-prima treatment in Photoshop. I use custom brushes designed by David Cole and manipulated by myself.
Done all in Photoshop, I create a sketch from my original image. Like a painter I dab color onto my sketch with a big sloppy pattern stamp brush. With each layer I add a little more detail until until I’m ready for the canvas texture. Ion top of the texture I tweak my digital painting.
