Corel Painter is having a webinar tomorrow, Thursday, April 28. 2016 at noon Eastern Daylight Savings time with Dominick Saponaro, who is a Corel Painter Master 2016. I plan to be there; it is going to be a great webinar. Dominick is an award wining illustrator and has worked for many publishers.
The demonstration will include tips on using color effectively and showcase his illustration work flow. He states that he works in a traditional way with an initial line drawing and builds from there. He says that he completes a black and white painting before adding color. You can find out more and register for the free webinar at the following link.

And a little about me:
I know I haven’t been around in a while. Family issues have taken all my time. I have painted when I could and I recently finished 13 videos for Corel about using and making papers in Painter 2016. When released, I will let you know.
The interest in paper fueled my renewed interest in “inky” landscapes. I am actually using custom watercolor variants in Painter matched with custom papers to create the images. I have worked this way before and find myself returning to the style time and again. It will be fun to see how Dominick adds color to his black and white paintings. Maybe I can give it a try with my “inky” landscapes. Following is an example image. When the release of the paper tutorials, I’ll do a couple of inky landscape tutorials on the blog and showing this type of image.
More later…until then, enjoy,
