RetouchPRO LIVE "Digital Painting" with Sue Bloom
On our next all-new RetouchPRO LIVE, join Sue Bloom as she demonstrates her digital painting technique. This will include Photoshop CS5's new wet media brush.

You will view Sue's full-sized desktop live via your web browser as she creates this digital painting (and possibly others) from start-to-finish. She will explain what she's doing along the way, with me (Doug Nelson) along to forward audience questions.

After Sue is finished with her presentation, she will answer more general questions on a time available basis.

Sue Bloom is Professor and Chair of the Department of Art and Art History at McDaniel College, and is the author of "Digital Collage and Painting" and "Digital Painting in Photoshop".

Please doublecheck your time zone as the US just switched to Daylight time.

Saturday, March 26, 4pm CDT (click the link below for other time zones)

It's a conspiracy! I just know it. Why oh why (not that I don't love them all) but why is it that every time recently there is a webinar which involves photomontage or digital painting (ma thang) is it always on the one day that I cannot watch live due to a prior engagement?
They hate me - I just know it! OK - time for Prozac hee hee.
Looking forward to the rebroadcast or You Tube.

Well... I am chatty Kathy so that is one way of getting around it :))
And by the way - the Kendall cats are still planning your demise!
All the best Doug, and looking forward to the next "live" webinar that I attend and where I can bug you and ask dumb questions till the cows come home! HA! Revenge being a dish served best when cold. ;-)

Re: RetouchPRO LIVE "Digital Painting" with Sue Bl
I would really like to hear her talk about how to predict how colors from the brush will mix with colors already in a photo, and how to keep the details in the photo:

I like to take a photo and "enhance" the look of it by selectively painting with color to get the look I want. I want to keep the photo look, but very selectively change some colors.

I have tried both using the brush tool and adding a color layer with a mask and selectively paint in. However, I frequently find it really hard to get the color I want, and often the new color entirely dominates and hides all texture/details in the photo. I just get a color blob so to speak.

Tips on this would be REALLY useful!!

I probably have no right to ask this as I wish I could but cannot make the live broadcast of this webinar. In absentia though - please could some kind person ask the question re orientation of the new painting brushes in Photoshop. I have researched it the best I can but with no luck. I find myself having to twist my wrist to extraordinary degrees to get the tip of the brush to point where I want as it wiggles and wobbles all over the place and I know that has to be wrong. Yes - I tried changing things up in the brushes palette but could not get the correct brush orientation to work that way either. I will then see the response when I view either the rebroadcast or the You Tube version.
Thank you very much in advance.
