February 2007 Artistry Tips and Tricks
The February 2007 issue of Artistry Tips and Tricks features
step-by-step tutorials written by Karen Sperling for painting
long-haired pets and for drawing portraits in the style of
artist Jim Dine, a contemporary of Andy Warhol's, in Corel Painter.
The tutorial about Jim Dine's art joins the many instructions
published over the years in Artistry Tips and Tricks about
painting and drawing in the style of specific artists.
Artists covered in past issues include the Impressionists, Pino Daeni,
Edward Hopper, Rembrandt and many more.
The tutorials featuring the styles of individual artists are offered
not to copy the artist's art, but as a way to study the techniques
so that the reader can have a basis for finding and drawing or painting
in his or her own style.
Visit the directory of Artistry Tips and Tricks
issues for the complete list of these tutorials.
Using painting-by-hand techniques, the February 2007 issue takes you
step-by-step from photo to oil painting and from photo to drawing.
This issue is compatible with Corel Painter versions IX, IX.5 and X.
Topics covered in this issue include:
*How to choose a color scheme
