In this video tutorial, I’ll demonstrate how you can paint a beautiful pastel portrait of a dog, in Photoshop. There is no cloning here, you’ll create the entire painting from scratch, using a reference image, the standard brush tool, and one of the default Photoshop brushes. Even if you’ve never painted from scratch before, I’ll show you step-by-step just how easy it can be. Using my techniques of trace-sketching, colour sampling, and by breaking the whole painting process down into manageable steps, you’ll be amazed at your results!
I believe that everyone can be taught to draw and paint, and confident that anyone can complete this project in Photoshop, using my no-nonsense, logical approach.
Even if you’ve never picked up a brush before, follow me, step-by-step, in this two-hour video tutorial and you’ll be creating your own beautiful pooch portraits in pastel!
