This stunning painting was completed by Beyond the Brushes member, Traci Newlin. Looking at this stunning work of art, you'd never know Traci has absolutely no painting experience prior to entering Beyond the Brushes in September of 2019. Traci says she's taken several painting classes in Corel Painter, but always forgot within a few weeks what she had learned. In her own words, Corel Painter was too complex for me. Photoshop is so straightforward. When I asked Traci what she found most challenging about creating this painting she said... For this painting, the hardest part was deciding the background. I am in a soft mode here lately. I enjoyed creating this because it was so sweet. I wanted to convey the sweetness the little girl showed with her aging pet. I always love to hear how my students feel about Beyond the Brushes. Traci had this to say... I am one of your strongest advocates for this class. It has literally breathed new life into my passion for digital art and photography. 👉 Everything is broken down so everyone can clearly understand. 👉 I love that I can go back and watch over and over again. 👉 I have learned so, so much! 👉 The atmosphere of the class is so warm and friendly and funny - yep Michelle injects humor into it and I love it! 👉 **I highly recommend Beyond the Brushes** to everyone with even the slightest interest in digital painting. I look forward to continuing this journey. Congratulations, Traci. This heirloom quality work of art painted 100% in Adobe Photoshop is truly stunning!
Another experiment with several new, custom-built, @photoshop mixer brushes. Unlike most digital paintings, the color and finishing were all added *WITHOUT* the aid of any cloning or color-picker techniques. It was all mixed and applied by hand just like a traditional artist 🎨 🖌 The end result is quite close to the work I do at the easel... it just dried a LOT faster. 😂 🙌 🚫 No dry time. 🚫 No smelly solvents. 🚫 No messy cleanup. 😁 Just paint. I wish the old masters like Rembrandt and Vermeer could see what we are able to do now. Better still -- I wish I could see how they would make what I'm doing look like child's play! I ❤️ @adobe Photoshop painting! #digitalartist #photoshoppainting #adobe #photoshop #wacom #artist #elevateyourart
This adorable pup was painted by Beyond the Brushes member, Claudia Nix. After just a few months in Beyond the Brushes, she has created an absolute masterpiece! Over 20 years ago, Claudia last held a paintbrush in hand. She used to dabble in oil paints and even had a few classes as a tween-ager. Her love for painting was rekindled when she joined Beyond the Brushes in September of 2019. She's been dabbling with a Wacom since 2001, but clearly, it has finally clicked! Claudia says... The best part of painting this was that the subject is near and dear to my heart--my schnauzer boy, Smithy. I got into the zone and loved mixing the colors around and adding the highlights. There was not a worst part but I was so thankful for Michelle's critique where she encouraged me to soften his fur a bit and blend him into the background more naturally. When I asked Claudia if she'd like to share about her experience as a student in Beyond the Brushes she said... I feel so dramatic saying this but...Beyond the Brushes has truly been life-changing for me. I have taken several of Michelle's classes over the past 4 years so I was already familiar with what an absolutely phenomenal teacher she is. She strikes the perfect balance between being completely honest with her feedback and not discouraging her students. That's a gift. I love the Beyond the Brushes community. There are so many fantastic people! Seeing the work everyone is doing is inspiring and motivating. The video critiques are invaluable both from Michelle and the Review Specialists. Thank you! Thank YOU, Claudia, for being such an outstanding student! #artist #photoshopPainter #paintinPhotoshop #adobePhotoshop #photoshopCC #elevateyourart #paintinphotoshop #paintphotography #photoshop_creative #photoshop_art #adobephotoshopcc #photoshoppainting #photoshopartwork #photoshopartist #learnphotoshop #photoshopbrushes #photoshopcreative #photoshopartistry #photoshoppro #photoshopart #photoshoparts #digital #digitalartist #digitalartists #digitalpainting #digitalpaint #digitalpainter #digitalpaintingclasses

This FREEHAND artwork In the Style of Laszlo was painted 100% in Adobe Photoshop. There is no cloning here AT ALL. If you've never looked at Phillip de Laszlo's paintings, you really should. He was famous for this style and I find it so inspiring! The way he used gestural brushstrokes to suggest the body line of his subjects is so masterful. I'm no Laszlo, but I surely did try. #artist #photoshopPainter #paintinPhotoshop #adobePhotoshop #photoshopCC #elevateyourart #paintinphotoshop #paintphotography #photoshop_creative #photoshop_art #adobephotoshopcc #photoshoppainting #photoshopartwork #photoshopartist #learnphotoshop #photoshopbrushes #photoshopcreative #photoshopartistry #photoshoppro #photoshopart #photoshoparts #digital #digitalartist #digitalartists #digitalpainting #digitalpaint #digitalpainter #digitalpaintingclasses
