Have you ever wanted to try your hand at Egg Tempura? Take a minute to look at this site. http://www.brigidmarlin.com/Pages/Mische.html
Brigid Marlin gives step-by-step instruction to her incredible master techniques, The Method and Formulas of the Mische Technique. This really is worth taking a look. I would love to fly to England and take her course in Marjorca.
You’ve finished your painting and decide to show it off with a postcard. If you don’t have your own scanner, you may take it to a place like Kinkos to have it scanned. But when you bring the disk home and print it out, it doesn’t have the same color vibrancy of the original. It’s not Kinkos fault. The same thing happens when you do your own scans. This is were Photoshop comes in. The dodge and burn tools are great to use to enhance various parts of your scanned picture. You can use the color adjustment tools under “Image” to also help bring the colors back to their original state. Of course, you can pay a lot of money for a professional to make the perfect scan, but I say, “Save your money,” add Photoshop to your painting tools, brushes and paints. Check back to specific “Tips and Tricks.”
