2. Ink tutorial

Ink tutorial done for The Official Corel Painter Magazine:

I will try to show you that you don’t really need paper, pens and ink to create an ink drawing that can be compared with a ‘real’ drawing. I want to show you how some of the tools behave and what effects you can achieve using them. Creating scratchy lines, irregular or regular, delicate strokes, messy textures and ink splodges, and even full colour paintings isn’t really as hard as it seems. However it is only a little part of the possibilities, Painter gives you. With the whole variety of brushes you can get amazing effects – just feel free to experiment on your own, and you will see how much fun it can be. I hope my several tips can help you to start your adventure with digital ink and that you will enjoy it!

3. Paint like Klimt

Tutorial done for The Official Corel Painter Magazine:

In the following tutorial I will try to create a painting, which would represent the most important features of Klimt’s ‘Golden Phase’ – etheral but sensual beauty, stylized decorative patterns and the famous gold ornaments – using Painter IX (Pen tools and Blenders) and gold paint on a printed image. My image was based on the beautiful portrait of Adele Bloch – Bauer, commissioned by her husband Ferdinand.

8. Picturesque Painting

Picturesque Painting Tutorial done for Corel Painter Official Magazine:

The style seemed ideal to express the Romantic spirit – to show the tension between the ‘sublime’ – scary, awe-inspiring phenomena like mountains and storms – and the ‘beautiful’ – fields, rivers, trees and everything that could be considered safe and pretty.

Working with this style can be also interesting for us today – using thick brushwork will show you that even an apparently static form of expression like a landscape can in fact become very dynamic and appealing. It can not only make your work look impressive and classy (especially when framed), but also is real fun to paint with since it will give you much freedom and allow creativity during the painting process.
