A flat­tened can­vas

ImagineFX - - Workshops -

I like to use lay­ers for or­gan­is­ing my work, but pre­fer to drop all my lay­ers once I’m happy with my progress and sim­ply paint on a flat can­vas. It feels a lot closer to paint­ing tra­di­tion­ally, be­cause I be­come more im­pul­sive and in­stinc­tive in my ap­proach. If changes or cor­rec­tions are needed then I’ll do them di­rectly on the can­vas us­ing the Lasso or Pen tool.

Paint­ing painterly

There are many ways to make your im­age look painterly. You could just put a tex­ture on a new Over­lay layer above it, or build a tex­ture into your brush. I pre­fer work­ing with a range of tex­tured brushes, keep­ing Flow and Opac­ity quite low. Try us­ing Brush mode rather then Layer mode while paint­ing to pro­duce some great ef­fects.
