Artistry Online Class #11: Turning Photos into Paintings in the Style of Rembrandt
The style of Dutch Golden Age painter, Rembrandt, is much-revered by both photographers and artists alike.
And now you can learn both the art fundamentals and color theories behind this beloved artist's style and how to emulate it in either Corel Painter or Adobe Photoshop or both from Elite Corel Painter Master Karen Sperling, who wrote the first several Painter manuals starting when the software debuted in 1991.
The time-honored approach of learning to paint in the style of the great master artists is a way to understand art theories and techniques, not to copy them, but to use them as a springboard for your own art.
Please note: This class is for artists, photographers and hobbyists who are interested in learning how to turn photos into paintings in Corel Painter or Adobe Photoshop, or both.
This class is not for teachers.

Pleased with Results
I just worked this up today after watching your Rembrandt video and was rather pleased with the results and wanted to share it with you.
Far from perfect, but I was surprised at how, I don't know, dramatic (?) this turned out, trying to make this coopers hawk photo look sort of like a Rembrandt. Most of the difference between the two was done in editing the photo, not what I did in Corel Painter 2023, but still.
I took the photo April 15 of this year at Deer Grove Forest Preserve in Palatine, about 3 miles from our house. Frankly I had walked right past the hawk when my wife said, "What's that?" and pointed off to the left of the trail. As luck would have it I ended up getting a better shot of it from where I happened to be than she did, but I'd never have known it was there without her.
Interestingly enough, it never, ever would have occurred to me to try something like this if not for your Rembrandt video. And for how well this came out, well, probably a combination of your excellent instruction and my own beginner's luck! Something for me to build on with other subjects, anyway.
Take care! Thanks for all the work you're doing on our behalf!
Artistry Online Class for Painting in the Style of Rembrandt Highly Recommended
I found Karen Sperling's class on "How to Paint in the Style of Rembrandt," and decided to purchase the class.
It was an absolute pleasure.
She beautifully explained how Rembrandt painted and intermingled art theory and history in her YouTube videos, which were just the perfect length.
Everything was so well-organized and so easy to access. I feel it was a perfect class for the beginner as well as intermediate person in Corel Painter.
I highly recommend this class for anyone with a love of Rembrandt and his style of painting.
