In your class you can choose whether or not to get feedback from instructors and/or fellow class members on the pages you post. This has been one of our most popular features in past classes!

Karen’s feeling is that everyone has the ability to draw and paint, we just need to learn how to develop our own gifts, and Digital Art Academy is the venue to achieve that goal. Karen is a veteran of online training and an instructor at Digital Art Academy . Karen looks forward to helping you explore the world of digital painting; it has been a wonderful journey for her!

Before Class-What You Will Learn
This Ole Barn
I am pleased to introduce you to the new Glazing and Texture brushes in Painter 2017. Students will paint a lovely landscape or use the reference provided to work from. I will demonstrate the how and why of using the new Glazing brushes. Glazing is an extremely important technique to imply distance and atmospheric conditions. A glaze is a thin transparent or semi-transparent layer on a painting which modifies the appearance of the underlying paint layer. Glazes can change the chroma, value, hue and texture of a surface.
This class will include a live Webinar session where I will paint a landscape using Glazing and Texture techniques. Student will learn how to turn just about any brush into a Glazing or Texture brush.
Let's Paint Italy!
Welcome to our February Painter Club Lesson!
This month you will be painting the images of Italy. Our first lesson will be painting the famous Golden Bridge in Florence, the Ponte Vecchio.
Our goal in this lesson is to isolate an area of the painting that reflects the detail or the message you want to express and to encourage happy accidents and off beat ideas. We will begin with a very loose interpretation and finish with details.
Our focus is to retain the center of interest by reinforcing it with strong tonal contrast, intense color and interesting textures.
Let's get started!

This month is all about spring! and blossoms are in bloom! Join me as I demonstrate several techniques for painting trees in the springtime with Painter 2017! This class will include a live Webinar session,
