I have always been a fan of the Victorian and Edwardian style of portraits and nudes. Apart from the techniques and the almost exclusive use of daylight illumination they seem to have a cheekiness and risqué feeling .
My photographs sell well as naughty greetings cards through site such as Fine Art America so I have decided to launch my own range.

Painter Essentials 5 Auto Paint
For the last few months I’ve been tinkering with painting nudes in Painter Essentials 5. The auto paint setting is fairly easy to use when photo painting nudes but it wasn’t producing the results I wanted.
There then followed a lot of painting, layer blending, erasing and quite a lot of cursing to achieve a better result.
Digital painting nudes from photographs using Corel Photo Painter 5
Still playing with digital painting nudes using Painter Essentials 5 and getting a little nearer the results I want. I’m using the auto painter in oil painting and pastel modes and them tweaking the results with various brushes set to clone from the original.
I’ve been experimenting with (Ok mucking about with) photo painting using Corel Painter to convert a photo into a painting.
This is one of the first results. There’s a link to a YouTube video by Thomas Churchwell that shows you how at the bottom of the page.
