Superb presentation. Sue is an excellent teacher, one who can explain things clearly and concisely. Her workflow is straightforward and easy to understand. Her manner is personable, thus making her easy to approach with any question.

It is always, always a rare treat to discover new techniques and ideas for painting and making it look real. Sue did this with style.

It was a treat to take this class. Thank you ever so much.

Janet

Re: RetouchPRO LIVE "Digital Pastels" with Sue Blo

Here's my first attempt - calf roper and calf

Had to eliminate some lamp poles etc. in photo before starting pastel technique.

photo and pastel attempt

My technique needs work, but Sue gave me a path to follow, and if I get brave, I can improvise more.

I don't know if this is the place to post this or not but I wanted to let you (Doug) and Sue know that I thoroughly enjoyed the Webinar ... Sue's techniques are great and I must be at just the right level to start picking it up because I understood just about all of it ... the pattern stamp technique is an added bonus. You asked about suggestions for future Webinars from Sue and I thought, from browsing her site, that something on Panoramas would be welcome, at least in my house ... thanks again for an outstanding couple of hours.

I've got a first try here. It took me a couple of tries to get an image I thought worked fairly well. FUN stuff!!!!!

I enjoyed the presentation very much. I've been wanting to try digital painting and this was the perfect intro. This process works quite well and I've had fun playing with the attached photos. I plan on playing with this a lot more.

Re: RetouchPRO LIVE "Digital Pastels" with Sue Blo

Hi enjoyed Sue's webinar. Here is my first attempt -- she did say to take artistic licence! The poor quality photos are what I usually have to work with but I don't want the look to be so photographic anyway!
