Relies on Karen Sperling for Corel Painter Guidance
I have purchased Artistry products designed by Karen Sperling for a number of years now, including most recently, Painting for Photographers Videos Tutorials Volume 2, Landscapes.
My work is mostly landscapes, typically starting with an image from a film or digital camera that I have taken while traveling, then edited and color corrected with Photoshop, and finally transformed into a painterly rendition via Painter.
From my first "automatic" painting to today's more crafted works, I have relied on Karen's writings to guide me through the creation of skies, oceans and mountains that communicate the vision that I hold in my mind when I first begin working on an image.
What I have found most interesting is that, with each new writing that Karen creates, the advances she proposes are those that I am now most ready for. It is exciting to be in a field of activity that is unfolding as we go, and Karen is one of the leaders in that unfolding process.

Painting for Photographers Video Tutorials Great Quality
You did it again. I have the Painting for Photographers book, the Painting for Photographers Video tutorials Volume 1: Portraits and the Artistry Bonus Brushes Volume 1. The new video tutorials/brushes for Landscapes are the same great quality. I receved them yesterday and have been busy learning since. The brushes are great and worth the price alone. I took a cruise to Alaska in July and look forward to working on photos from the trip.
No Better Way to Learn Corel Painter
I was so impressed with the artistic and technical information Karen Sperling
provided in the Painting for Photographers Video Tutorials Volume 1: Portraits
that I was very interested in the second volume, Painting for Photographers Video
Tutorials Volume 2: Landscapes when she announced it.
If you take the time to look at the examples of her Corel Painter art on this
website, you can't help but wonder at the vast range of expression she's
mastered in Corel Painter--and if you've used Painter for any length of time,
you know the depth and complexity of the program.
As far as I'm concerned, there's no better way to develop your technique in the
application than to learn it from the woman who "wrote the book"--literally.
