Scott Deardorff’s Mastering the Digital Canvas™ training series will take an in-depth look at various painting subjects and styles.  Scott will share with you the techniques he uses to create his own artwork – techniques he’s spent years developing and perfecting.  The first installment in this series is “Lesson One, Creative Animal-Painting Techniques for Photoshop,” which contains over six hours of video instruction.  This lesson begins with an introduction to the smudge tool, Scott’s primary painting tool, and concludes with a beginning-to-end demonstration of his easy-to-follow techniques for transforming an animal photo into an animal painting .    Click here  to view Scott’s animal painting gallery.

We’re happy to announce the release of “Lesson Two, Creative Portrait-Painting Techniques for Photoshop.”  In this nine-hour lesson, Scott will guide you through the process of transforming photographs of people into painted portraits.  As with Lesson One, his primary tool in this lesson is the smudge tool, but he’ll also spend some time introducing you to – and then incorporating – some of Photoshop’s newer painting features.    We hope that, like Lesson One, you’ll find this video to be a valuable learning tool.     Click here  to view Scott’s portrait gallery.
