After you've had Blank Canvas OR my Launchpad Series and Photos into Artwork, you are eligible to sign up for Photoshop: Photorealistic Painting. You cannot take these two concurrently.
You'll be working on several projects in this class -- Flower or Fruit, Buildings, Paper Projects, and a Gadget Painting! Through this journey, you're going to be working with me as I go through similar struggles. I will show you my techniques for organizing and carrying out these projects.
Along the way, you'll be learning even more about Photoshop. Here are some of the learning objectives for this course:
There's no way that a list of learning objectives can prepare you for what you're going to experience in this course. Students who have never painted anything before come out of this class with beautiful hand-painted creations and a new confidence to explore their artistic side!
Prerequisites for this class
I wouldn't believe I would be creating something so realistic 7 weeks ago. Janee offers a high quality course, which gives very professional and current knowledge about the program and teaching how to draw.
She also stimulates lively class discussions! The students in this class wrote over 800 messages in 7 weeks! The discussions were very involved and these people do really like what they are doing. My classmates are very talented, caring and willing to share their help, which is an extremely big part of my learning. I have learned a lot!
The surprise about Photorealistic Painting was that the Photoshop techniques were not so different from what we learned in our past classes. A big part of this course was teaching us how to look at the shadows, colors, textures, and patterns in a picture and how to make those appear again in our painting using Photoshop's tools.
I was really pleased at how realistic my paintings were by the end of the course. If someone had told me before I started this course that I was expected to produce paintings of this caliber, I would have laughed and said "You may get them from other people, but not from me." I was astonished at how well I did by the end of the lessons. This course is that good!
The class was just wonderful, and the best thing you could do to improve it would be to offer Photorealism Part 2, and 3, .... Janee, I can't thank you enough for having your site and your classes and I am so thankful I discovered them!
What a fantastic experience this course has been! Not only have I learnt many new techniques but I have become much more expert at observing what is "in" a picture.
The intellectual challenge has been finding solutions to the problem of reproducing what one sees. The quality of the tutorials have been of the highest order and the rapport with the class absolutely fantastic. Bring on part 2!
