Summary

Whew! This has been a very full and intense hour. Spend some time trying out these techniques before you move along further.

In this hour, you saw that digital painting is an area where Photoshop truly excels. You can work either "from scratch" or converting images you have uploaded as digital photos or scans or have created in some other compatible program. Once you have the image in Photoshop, the various filters and brushes enable you to turn your work into a good imitation of an oil painting, watercolor, or drawing. The "artistic" filter set includes filters that can do much of the work of conversion for you. For best results, though, you'll want to go in and touch up the picture after the filter has done its work. Choose tools and colors that are appropriate to the medium you're trying to imitate. Experiment, and if you find a technique or filter combination that works especially well, make notes on it. Yes, you can even write in this book! (Well, not if it's a library book…)
