Photo Paint Master Richard Ramsey Webinar!!

Interested in new or additional photo paint techniques?

What if you could spend an hour looking over the shoulder of one of the most successful artists in PPA…a man who has won Photographer of the Year 13 times?

Todays market place is tough. As artist we need to find a way to set ourselves apart from the biz next door. Richard Ramsey has done just that and I twisted his arm enough that he is going to spend ninety minutes of his time via webinar sharing his digital painting methods with the Digital Art Academy and Digital Paint Magazine.

Webinar is Sept 23, 4PM CST

Following are a few good reasons to check out this webinar

  • You want your artwork to move to the next level
  • You struggle with getting your paintings to be more impressionistic
  • You would like new ideas and inspiration on various painting techniques
  • You know there are better ways to organize your work flow but haven’t found the right one for you
  • You have lots of ideas, if only you knew how to implement them
  • You want help in seeing light and form in your photo reference files
  • You work in 2 dimensions, from photo reference or from scratch
  • Digital painting is almost dangerous because you can lose yourself for hours, if not days, working on your art.
  • You love to share your work and people who see your work love it.
  • You have to many ideas rattling around in that brain of yours that you cant get them all out on canvas or paper.
  • You invest in your continuous growth with time and money.

So who is this guy anyway? Well if you are in Tennessee and are a member of PPA you have heard of him for sure. As I mentioned earlier he is a very accomplished artist and master Photographer. Digital Paint Magazine carried him on the cover in the December 2009 edition. You can find more or Richards work at his website:

Folks I have already had complaints about the video. The quality of the video is as good as we can get it and it the same as the live event was. While processing videos this week I have noticed a big difference between the video quality between instructors and it has to do with the screen resolution on the presenters end. Thanks.

Remember 72 hours for the download, after that the link will be taken down.

Photo to Art Paint Like the Old Masters with Odwin Rensen

Photo to Art Paint Like the Old Masters with Odwin Rensen

If you are looking for information on converting Photo to Art, this is one webinar that you should not miss. We had an AWESOME webinar with Odwin Rensen. People have been waiting for a long time for Odwin to share his digital painting techniques. We were not disappointed.

Odwin shared for over two and a half hours and held nothing back. He showed us his precise workflow and developed the image below as we watched and asked questions.

Photo to Art, Paint Like the Old Masters

Photo to art, or digital painting from photo reference has been on the rise for the last two years. It has virtually exploded. A ton of new art software has been released and more is on the way.  In this webinar Odwin utilizes Corel Painter and Adobe Photoshop to create the images above.

The other resources that Odwin put together for you took him some time. He produced at nice PDF that answers all of the questions that came up in the chat box. He also outlined the brushes used as well as providing the full PSD file so you can see what he was doing in each step while he was in Photoshop.

Thanks Odwin for giving the readers of Digital Paint Magazine and our classmates at Digital Art Academy a huge bang for their buck!  You set the bar really high for the remaining webinars with the Summer Digital Art Summit.

Your password has been mailed to you if you have already purchased. If you are a new purchaser the pass will be mailed within 24 hours.

If you are interested in purchasing the brushes that Odwin uses in this webinar you can find them at Kelby Training. Tamara Fry-Pietsch is a DVD production editor at Kelby and was gracious enough to send me the following information.

All of the Brushes he used in the demo come from two DVD’s by Fay Sarkis:

The Majority of the brushes are from the
Celebration of Art, Weddings Portrait and Faces DVD Set:

Da Vinci
Portrait Hair Brushes

The remaining ones come from:

A Celebration of Art, Wild About Animals

Dog Hair Brushes
Wild Life Hair Brushes

The brushes were imbedded in the first DVD ONLY. The two DVD’s listed contain the brushes in a separate folder:)  The whole workspace thing was too problematic, it worked for some machines and not others, so all of the brushes are accessible on those two discs with having to scrap them out of the workspace:)

Both DVD’s can be purchased @
