Digital Paintings From Life

Recent digital paintings from live model sessions. Drawn and rendered in Photoshop using a Macbook Pro and Intuos 4 tablet.

This series was a unique learning experience. I learned a lot about getting edges and transitions using PS digital brushes. To be honest though, I prefer traditional oil. Something about the tactile quality, the immediacy and getting your hands dirty that makes it much more fulfilling.

  1. I definitely know what you mean about the feeling of oil paint, except I don’t like the “getting your hands dirty” part haha. Gloves for me!
