While attending art school in Boston I wanted to be a photographer. Through my company P.B.S. Studios, I’ve published over a hundred articles.
While learning Adobe Photoshop, I discovered digital photo-painting. I attended a seminar presented by Faye Sirkis and took on-line workshops from Karen Sperling, and Tim Shelbourne.
Using a computer, a graphics tablet, and computer software, I start with a reference photo then use a stylus to paint on layers, emulating a watercolor, oil, pastel or charcoal painting. Results are printed on water color paper or canvas.
Although I recently join the Manassas Art Guild (MAG), I hope to promote this emerging art form.
