How to Paint Watercolour Splatters

In this class, I show you how to digitise watercolour artwork in Photoshop.

This class is a comprehensive guide for beginners that shows you how to digitise your watercolour artwork in Photoshop. We start by looking at things to consider when you are painting and how to get your work onto the computer. I then cover some Photoshop basics which will be really useful for complete beginners to the software. We then move onto making colour adjustments to our artwork and look at the difference between destructive editing (using erasers) and non-destructive editing (using masks and layers).

I then take you through all of my favourite tools for digitising and editing with lots of tips along the way. These include the erasers, the quick selection tools, the lasoo tools and the marquee tools. I also cover tools that allow you to refine your image, including the spot healing tool, the clone stamp tool, the eye dropper tool and brush, and adjustment layer masks.

Once we have covered how to use all of these tools, I take you through how to digitise five pieces of artwork from start to finish using pieces from my other classes, all using different methods.

This class is absolutely packed full of useful information for you – it is basically the class that I wish I had access to when I was starting out!

    I haven't even finished this class yet and I have already learned SO MUCH. I thought I had a pretty good handle on Photoshop and pattern design, but Sharone has so much more information and tips and CLEAR DIRECTION on the tools and how many different ways to accomplish things. Simply a terrific class! Thank you for sharing your knowledge, Sharone.

    An outstanding class. For me this is not just another Photoshop class, but it is a reference good enough to be referenced again and again. It is packed with information and clear instructions and keeps you on the track without letting you get overwhelmed. I highly recommend this to even those who are familiar with Photoshop. I especially like the last classes in which Sharone reinforces the Photoshop tips, tricks and skills she has so far taught by editing and digitizing watercolor paintings from start to finish.

    This class far exceeded my expectations. I've been using Photoshop for more than 20 years, but recently had to take a break when "life got in the way." It's amazing how quickly I forgot the basics. With two hours and thirty-six minutes of finely tuned instructions, I think I'm on my way. Classes like Sharone's are why I will always be a Skillshare member.

    This is an absolutely incredible class. I came into this with zero knowledge of digitising and Photoshop and after watching all the lessons and trying it out on my own, I'm really happy that I'm now able to do it. This class is comprehensive and packed with so much useful information and examples, organised into clear and manageable steps, and just so well done overall. It's an amazing resource and I highly recommend it for anyone who wants to learn how to digitise their watercolour art using Photoshop.
