Painitng of Iceland inspired by Monet in Adobe Photoshop CC and Adobe Photoshop Sketch
I studied Monet art for many years. I fell in love with the impressionist painting technique probably at age 14 during my painting classes. My teacher assigned me to create a presentation about Impressionism and I just fell in love with this painting style, brush strokes, and broken color technique. Since then my favorite painting techniques are: impressionism and knife painting techniques.
For me traditional and digital techniques are the same. It doesn’t matter what canvas you are working on with your current project: traditional or digital, you are creating art which represents your soul, your mood, your attitude, your painting style.
I wanted to write a book that every Photoshop user could learn from. Many of us are new to Photoshop, use it regularly or are experts. However, no matter what your Photoshop skill level is, chances are you can still learn new things or pick up tips from this book that you haven’t discovered yet. My editor said “wow, I learned at least 10 things right off the bat that I didn’t know and I ‘m not done editing yet.” We get into our groove and we use the same features and techniques all the time. However, with each new update to Photoshop CC there are usually little things that the engineers at Adobe add or change that often don’t get a mention. I did my best to pick out 101 of my favorites. Enjoy!
