This stunning painting was completed by Beyond the Brushes member, Traci Newlin. Looking at this stunning work of art, you'd never know Traci has absolutely no painting experience prior to entering Beyond the Brushes in September of 2019.
Traci says she's taken several painting classes in Corel Painter, but always forgot within a few weeks what she had learned. In her own words...
"Corel Painter was too complex for me. Photoshop is so straightforward."
When I asked Traci what she found most challenging about creating this painting she said...
"For this painting, the hardest part was deciding the background. I am in a soft mode here lately. I enjoyed creating this because it was so sweet. I wanted to convey the sweetness the little girl showed with her aging pet."
I always love to hear how my students feel about Beyond the Brushes. Traci had this to say...
"I am one of your strongest advocates for this class. It has literally breathed new life into my passion for digital art and photography.
👉 Everything is broken down so everyone can clearly understand.
👉 I love that I can go back and watch over and over again.
👉 I have learned so, so much!
👉 The atmosphere of the class is so warm and friendly and funny - yep Michelle injects humor into it and I love it!
👉 I highly recommend Beyond the Brushes to everyone with even the slightest interest in digital painting.
I look forward to continuing this journey."
Congratulations, Traci. This heirloom quality work of art painted 100% in Adobe Photoshop is truly stunning!
