LANDSCAPE PAINTING AND THE SARGENT BRUSH” by Melissa Gallo for Corel Painter 2017/2018 is a must have for any beginner or advanced student who wants to take their digital painting skill to the next level! As a long time student of Melissa Gallo, I recently added to my collection her latest training designed around Corel Painter 2017/2018. What stands out most about this new training is that it introduces you to the features of Corel Painter while learning to wield the famous Sargent Brush! The digital paint strokes achieved from this course are rich and luscious, emulating oil pastels or paint. As with all of her courses, she provides a strong foundation in traditional art concepts before tackling a new painting before your eyes.

Melissa is one of the best educators in her field for developing an organic style of painting. For students that are not familiar with her training style, you are in for a real treat as she shares her experience with both traditional and digital media.

Thank you Melissa for another great product! I can honestly say through all my travels with other training materials and instructors, nothing comes close to the quality of learning that you offer at a very affordable price.

Melissa, as with your vast body of work, Landscape Painting And The Sargent Brush reinforces your place as a world-class artist and instructor!

Welcome to the world of digital painting!  I fell in love with this new medium after having worked for years as a commercial illustrator in traditional media. I delight in the fact that I can retrace my steps in a painting, easily make corrections or change my paper and canvas in mid stream!  It is my hope that you will fall in love with this wonderful new world as well....

Now you can learn how to turn your favorite images into beautiful paintings using PAINTER by Corel or PHOTOSHOP by Adobe!

Just take a look at my digital painting workshops offered for users of both Photoshop and Corel's Painter software.  These feature downloadable video tutorials, practice images, brush sets and paper libraries among other goodies.  They are work-at-your-own-pace workshops.

Happy painting! Melissa Gallo (Painter Master Elite, digital art instructor and fine artist)
