Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
This book is about becoming one with Corel Painter, letting Painter invisibly magnify your creative power, without ever getting in your way.

Jeremy Sutton has been sharing his passion for Painter since 1993: Nobody knows more about teaching it. He starts with three principles for using Painter to make your visions real: simplify, organize, and optimize. Next, you’ll learn how to create brushes; work in pastel, watercolor, and oil; use layers, printmaking techniques, and collage.

Sutton then shares his approach to Painter artistry: tuning into your subject’s essence; setting up ground color and creating a “muck up” underpainting; refining images and defining focus; and using scripts to replay your creative process.

Full-color books on digital imaging have become commonplace, but few are as beautiful as this one. If you’re not convinced that software and passion can mix, see for yourself. Bill Camarda, from the August 2005 Read Only
