|To begin, I need a reference photo of my subject - |
this time an apple.
|I take many photos!|
|This is the first photo I shot. |
Next, I'll adjust it in Photoshop.
|I adjust the image to a more pleasing (and inspiring) hue.|
2. In Levels mode, I adjust the RGB colors.
3. In Hue and Saturation I make further adjustments.
Next, I'll print the image in 5x7 format on glossy photo paper. I'll use this as my reference photo when I go to the easel.
If you grab your smartphone or camera, a piece of fruit, a knife and a strong light you can take your own photos now to paint along with me. See you tomorrow...
