I doing a tutorial on painting in Photoshop cs6. My favorite part is the fact that I don't get any paint on my fingers. Here I used a photograph from my friend Karla Buckley taken in France, as my reference photo. I created a couple of brushed within Photoshop, one make from pic of willow leaves, land another I used for over all blending. I warn you once you start making your own brushes in Photoshop it is addictive, but certainly worth the effort.
