The Art of Photo Painting with Faye Sirkis

Friday, May 30th, 2008
Washington State Convention & Trade Center
The Art of Photo Painting Tour
This casual one day seminar sponsored by Kelby Training was definitely worth attending. Taught by internationally recognized artist, photographer, and trainer Faye Sirkis - she took us through the history of art and how to implement the techniques of the ages to create a digital masterpiece by showing you the tips, tricks and secrets behind using Adobe Photoshop and Corel Painter X.

It was just amazing the way she would recapture the essence of beauty, form, and substance of by gone ages that continue to influence the way we work today. She shared with us the story behind the images she worked on,  adding the emotional touch to her work.

The way she would give the face energy and individuality by applying those fine details to render the expression of the soul was the part of the seminar that I enjoyed the most.

If you have the chance of attending this seminar I would encourage you to do it!

Personally it looks very interesting. I have been looking at the kelby training and a similar course in "smudge painting" held elsewhere, this may well tip the balance for me on doing the kelby stuff soon.

I haven't got around to the smudge painting and painter as it is geared towards the fine art rather than stock, and priorities is towards stock at the moment.  Looking through the lessons I see rembrant, monet etc etc.

this is not a critisicm but I found it extremely ironic that it is on the fotolia blog. It is the exact sort of stuff that fotolia doesnt' want and rejects for 'type of photograph' they specifically say dont send us fine art :):)
