Introduction
ing your photos into paintings using
Corel Painter and Adobe Photoshop:
Practice.
And the practice isn’t what you think.
You won’t be trying to get better at
drawing a straight line.
The practice will be in terms of making
decisions about what to paint like choos-
ing what to keep from the photo and
what to leave out. These decisions are
based on the art concepts that you will
learn in this book.
I know that you can paint your photos
in Painter and Photoshop, even if you’ve
never painted before, because I see the
photographers in my Artistry Painting
for Photographers Retreats painting after
three days in my class.
And in inting for hotogrphers ,
you’ll Qnd information similar to that of-
fered during my Artistry Retreats.
I also know the tips and techniques in
this book work because I use them for
my own art.
Though I painted as a child, and my
mother was an artist, my main career has
always been as a journalist, which is how
I got to write the Qrst several Painter
manuals, three Painter books before this
one and two Painter newsletters.
It’s only in recent years that I’ve been
painting, and if I can do it, you can do
it! On these pages you see my Qrst paint-
ing from photos in Painter—I think they
make a very good illustration for encour-
aging you to try to paint your photos!
A word about this book’s structure…
The book is set up to Qrst give you an
introduction to art concepts that you
need to know to paint photos.
Aimed at photographers who didn’t
take art classes, these art lessons will
help you to know what you want to
paint.
Painting is 90% thought, 10% execu-
tion. Knowing what you’re trying to do
is more important than knowing how to
do it.
Of course, computer know-how does
play a part, and that’s what’s covered
next, information about Corel Painter,
Adobe Photoshop and Wacom.
Next, you’ll Qnd step-by-step instruc-
tions for painting portraits, landscapes
and pets, in various styles, including
oils, watercolors and pastels.
The book’s Qnal section covers painting
on the canvas after the artwork is
printed, including how to apply a Qrst
coat, and painting with acrylics and oils.
Keep in mind as you paint that you
will get better the more you do it.
Also remember that everything you
paint is an interim step and the more
you work on the painting the better it
will get.
As you paint, refer to the art lessons
section of inting for hotogrphers , and
use the art concepts to guide you to help
you Qgure out what to paint.
Just remember: If you think you can
turn your photos into paintings, you
probably can!
I was listening in the car to an audio
CD of the book, uccess rough ositive
entl ttitude , by Napoleon Hill and
W. Clement Stone, when an amazing
thing happened.
I heard these words: “If you think you
can do something, you probably can.”
Incredible! I have said that in my
Artistry Painting for Photographers Re-
treats to encourage photographers who
think they can paint to go for it!
And there were my words, coming
from Napoleon Hill, who got the skinny
on success from Andrew Carnegie.
So I guess you can believe me when I
tell you that if you think you can paint
photos, you probably can!
Of course, I already knew my words
were true because I’ve done it.
I’ve gone from never Qnishing paint-
ings to exhibiting my art in a gallery in
New York’s prestigious Chelsea section!
All because I Qgured I could.
So here it is: If you think you can cre-
ate paintings from your photos, you
probably can!
Many photographers believe that either
you’re an artist, or you’re not.
This book dispels that myth.
If you’re a photographer, you have a
certain visual sense that led to your in-
terest in photography.
Add to that the theories that artists
learn in art school, and the knowledge of
how to use Corel Painter and Adobe
Photoshop, and voilá—you’ll be painting
your photos sooner than you can say
Toulouse-Lautrec!
Sort of.
There is one other ingredient for turn-

ated on September 11, 2001 with a red, white
and blue color scheme in honor of those who
lost their lives in the 9/11 World Trade
Center tragedy. Photos and painting by
