Painting the Modern Day Sargent

“His strokes are laid down perfectly, his colors are always harmonious…his subjects look like they are still breathing. The flawless strokes that seem so effortless are his trademark.” This is the style of the painter John Singer Sargent. He is well-known for his style that many modern artists want to be like him.

John Singer Sargent is a master in painting and when you look at his work, you could be disheartened because you think you couldn’t be like him. Sometimes, you think that you will just be an ordinary painter that can never master the art of painting. But, you don’t need to worry that much because it will come if you have the same sort of determination to learn and improve your art like what Sargent had.

How to improve your painting? You don’t need to seek everywhere to find it because you just need an interest, passion, determination, and of course an internet connection. You can study online, be taught online, and learn online about his techniques. You could then paint be the modern day Sargent.

A course in Digital Art Academy in titled “Old Masters Style Painting” will help you be the painter you would like to be. They have videos, manual, prospectus, training, assignments, and other materials you will need in order to learn this. Digital Art Academy would be like a normal academy but online thus giving you time to study and practice in the comfort of your home. This course would teach you how to utilize Corel Painter’s powerful brush engine, and accurate cloning features to transform a photograph into a breath taking masterpiece reminiscent of John Singer Sargent.

If you want to know the things that are taught in this course, you can look at the course prospectus and be amazed on the superb information and learning that you can get. This is not just any other online classes because this class is divided into weeks. You also get to ask your instructor on any queries you may have. You see, you don’t really need to search everywhere and look for references on how to paint like John Singer Sargent because everything would be taught to you here. You can get the best training in Digital Art Academy.

Examples of the paintings that you too can paint are:

How to Install Heathers Brushes

A quick note about brush installs. Please remember we can not support brush install challenges. There are a number of other resources available to read or watch.

QA DAA Sargent

Here is a question that has came up a few times that Heather has addresses for us.

I've had the question come up that I felt was important to talk about:
Brush Ghosting.
What is it?  When your computer gets "tired" you will start to see white
lines (the outline of your brush if your preferences are set to "brush")
overlay your canvas.  Don't worry.  This is simply ghosting.  There is no
damage to your painting.  It's literally an illusion.
How do you fix it?  Simply zoom in or zoom out.  This takes care of it
each time.  You'll find this happens when your computer's RAM is not maxed
out, OR you use a lot "captured dab" Painter brushes.
So whenever you see these white ghost lines, don't worry.  Your painting
is safe.  Simply zoon out once or twice.
Happy painting!
