Volume 3: Children's Portraits, Corel Painter

The Painting for Photographers Video Tutorials Volume 3: Painting Children's Portraits, for Corel Painter 12, X3, 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018, features instructional videos showing how to paint children's portraits in Corel Painter based on photos.

Brushes and Textures

If you think about it, adding brushstrokes to photos to make them into paintings is actually adding texture, and Karen Sperling has developed 60+ new revolutionary custom texture brushes to use with her new 20 custom paper textures for the Painting for Photographers Video Tutorials Volume 3: Children's Portraits.
Included in the Artistry Volume 3 Bonus Brushes are .pdf tutorials that explain:
• How to install the brushes
• How to install the papers
• How to paint with the brushes
• How to use Painter's paper features to add painterly touches to your paintings from photos
Here are the brushes that are in the Artistry Bonus Brushes Volume 3 collection:

Children's Portrait Videos: Brilliant
Hi Karen,
I just wanted to tell you I had a chance to watch the children's videos from front
to back over the weekend and they're just so brilliant. I learned so much
and have already started to put them to use. Is there a volume 2?
I edited the background on this image and added brushstrokes after watching
your videos. Done mostly in Photoshop but some Painter work done after your videos.
I have only done 10 paintings and I get better after each one.
I hope to incorporate more of your techniques and get more painterly
with practice.
Yes, feel free to use my comments and name. I'm a big fan of yours.
Thanks again,
Jack Zucker

Karen Sperling's Presentation Style In Line with Learning Style
I decided to preorder the Painting for Photographers Video Tutorials Volume 3: Painting Children's Portraits because I have worked with the Painting for Photographers Video Tutorials Volume 1: Portraits, the Painting for Photographers ebook and the Artistry Beginners Guide for Corel Painter I purchased from Karen Sperling and am satisfied that her style of presentation is in line with the way I learn things, so I am confident that her new video tutorials when released will be perfect for me.

Painting for Photographers Portraits Video Tutorials Offer Host of Tips Not Previously Seen
I can paint!
Yes, that’s how much of a difference Karen Sperling’s portraits video tutorials have made to my painting.
The video tutorials are almost like having a Corel Painter master in the room with me, offering a
host of tips I have not previously read about. My portraits are coming to life.
What I also enjoyed about the video tutorials are the references to the ‘Masters’ of old,
the reasons why a certain method is employed. It is also interesting to watch how
a professional artist uses a brush, the direction of the strokes may not sound important,
but you can’t see this in a book.
These video tutorials have brought my portrait painting forward in leaps and bounds, and will continue
to do so for some time to come yet.
Books have taken me so far, these video tutorials have taken me to the next level.

Loves, Loves, Painting for Photographers Video Tutorials
I have gone through much of the video tutorials. I go back and watch two or three times to understand.
I love, love it. It is so much better than written instruction no matter how good the book or the tip.
Many times when I read an instruction, it takes me awhile to find what the book is talking about and
then guessing how to manipulate the brush or whatever the instruction I am trying to learn.
I was getting nowhere fast and I think I will finally be able to create something.
Watching Karen Sperling's demonstrations in the video tutorials is a big leap forward for me.

Painting for Photographers Video Tutorials Offer Best Instruction
Karen's new video tutorials, Painting for Photographers, brought me to a new level.
I have many books and have been studying directions in those books and
in magazines, and never was able to put the tools to work for me effectively,
on my own picture, before I bought the video tutorials. I think the instruction is better
than anything I have seen so far and watching her far surpasses reading.

Painting for Photographers Video Tutorials Offer New Techniques for Real Artistry
I have been working on one of the images that you have in your video tutorials.
The instructions you give on your DVD are more than just copy what is
in the photo -I am pleased to find the new techniques for real artistry
in your instructions!
Thanks so much for doing these video tutorials - it is what I have been waiting for!
I have so much to learn, but armed with this instruction, I may just be able
to produce a greater painting.
Best wishes,

Loves Painting for Photographers Video Tutorials
Hi, Karen,
I finally got to review your Painting for Photographers Video Tutorials. This is my first
attempt at using your techniques.
I have never painted a whole image before, only parts mainly the background, so I thought
I would pass the before and after images along to you.
Your Painting for Photographers Video Tutorials have really opened a new world. I really only used the
blenders before, so adding color to an image really takes it a step further.
I love your video tutorials. Not much training on Corel Painter out there.
Thanks for putting out a great training video.
