Who is this course for

  • Any one that would like to learn how to turn a picture into a wall art painting using Photoshop.


During this lesson, we are going to learn how to take a picture and transform it into a work of art that we can put on your wall. We will be working in Photoshop, and you should bring either a graphic pad and pen, or a mouse if that's all you have. If you are interested in following along with me, you will need to have Photoshop installed on your computer. I'll make the brushes and the photo that I used in the course available for download as well, in case you're interested. There won't be any filters like those used by others AKA (oil paint filter). Instead, we will be employing brush strokes, much as an artist would use a brush and a canvas while creating their work. When I produce an oil painting from a photograph, I always utilize these specific approaches, and I'm going to explain them to you step by step. Your final assignment for the class will be to post the piece of wall art painting that you made by using everything you have learnt during the course. I look forward to seeing you in class, and I hope you like painting. So with that said, I can't wait to get started.
