Painting Emilie with a Wacom Intuos 3, Photoshop, and MacBook Pro.
The arts collective I'm involved with has been holding Monday night portrait sessions for the last several months at our local Center for the Arts. These are the paintings I've done the last couple of weeks. Both are two-hour studies in Photoshop. I set up the Mac & the Wacom tablet and paint the model from life. The process of making the picture is similar to painting in oils. I start with big brushes, establishing the dark areas first. Then I lay in color, and finally add the highlights.
