Part 3: Basic Photo Paintinggilliandarby
By Helen Yancy
In this tutorial, Painter Master Helen Yancy introduces you to the Color and Layers palette, and how to use this for creating photo art. She also takes a look at brush settings like size, opacity, feature, resaturation and bleed, and what each of these settings mean. You will learn how to add a new brush to a custom palette and how to save the custom palette for future use. Before you start to paint, it is helpful to create a new layer to paint on – this allows you to see if you have missed painting in any areas and still have the photo showing through.
