Spring Open Studio Starts Saturday at Digital Art Academy


Hey Friends,

Spring Open Studio starts Saturday at the Digital Art Academy.  The instructor is Corel Painter Master Elite, Karen Bonaker, and the topic is Contemporary Japanese Ink Paintings.  Registration closes Friday, March 27, 2015…so hurry and register before it is too late.  The course will include a custom brush category, paper textures, overlays and reference materials.  Karen provides video and PDFs, plus moderates and comments on all student work.

I’m excited about anything that talks about watercolor in painter and this class focuses on it.  Karen talks about flow maps, watercolors, selections, and demos tons of new brushes.  Check out the following work by Karen.  This is the type of work demonstrated in the class.

I love that the images also have a Sumi-e feel to them.

The textured backgrounds are wonderful.

Of course I love anything with flowers.

OK, I can’t stand it.  I had to do a practice one.  I used a new brush of mine and a texture overlay.  Loads of fun, but I can’t wait to learn Karen’s new techniques.

  1. Skip, I would love to take this class, but when I follow the link there doesn’t appear to be a place to register and pay for it. Can you send the link to do this?
    Thanks,
    Eva

    • Hi Eva,

      When you click on the link you will be taken to the Contemporary Japanese Ink Painting Information page. Click on the title, Contemporary Japanese Ink Painting and you will be taken to the log in page. Log in and then you will see how to register for the course. Remember to select the words Pay with PayPal…do not select the PayPal icon.

      Or, you can just go to the site and log in. Once you have done that you should be able to access the course page and pay using PayPal. If neither of these gets you there…just let me know…and I’ll do something else. It is hard for me to explain this because I when I log in, I don’t see what you see…so I may not remember something important.

      Hope this helps,
      Skip
