Written and illustrated by Karen Sperling, the world's first Painter authority, having penned the first several Painter manuals and three previous Painter books, Painting for Photographers is the first art book for photographers.

It starts with a look at the art concepts that photographers need to know to paint their photos and describes the materials needed to create art, in this case, the software program tools and features, in addition to Wacom tablets.

Next, Painting for Photographers provides step-by-step instructions and four-color illustrations for creating paintings in Corel Painter and Adobe Photoshop from popular photo subjects, including portraits, landscapes and pets, covering various styles of art, including oils, watercolors and pastels.

Additionally, Painting for Photographers shows how to paint with traditional acrylics and oils on top of the digital artwork after it's printed to canvas.

Painting for Photographers includes information for painting portraits and landscapes both in a painterly way and photorealistically. It features Karen Sperling's special tips and techniques gained from her 20+ years of Painter experience, including which Photoshop and Painter brushes to use for painting portraits and landscapes, and how to take advantage of art concepts while transforming photos into paintings.

Painting for Photographers appeals to everyone from professional photographers who would like to sell paintings to their clients to hobbyists who are interested in painting photos of their kids, grandkids and travels to graphic designers, illustrators, animators, web art creators and fine artists who would like to use photos as the basis for their artwork.

Here are some examples of the portraits, landscapes and pets paintings covered in Painting for Photgraphers.

Painting for Photographers has received rave reviews!

Painting for Photographers Rocks!
As a professional photographer, I had been searching how
to add painting touches to my photographic images. Two other
books were not very helpful.
Karen Sperling’s Painting for Photographers book is awesome!
Karen not only teaches how to use Corel Painter, but she also
explains the theories of actual painting as taught in art schools.
In short, this book rocks!

Painting for Photographers is Wonderful
Thank you for such a wonderful book.
I have been using Painter for a couple of years now,
but have not been happy with the results.
I purchased most of the Painter books and found out they were
big on explaining how Painter works, but not big on
how to complete a successful painting.
Your book explains the details of Painter while teaching
the details of painting–a rare combination in the
Painter Book World!
As soon as your book gets out in the public and they realize how
successfully you can teach, you will have a best seller.
Thank you for a great book and for enhancing my
learning experience.
