This ArtByte includes eleven pages of instruction (some repeated from "Taking, Editing & Painting Photo References," with new images) AND a full demo video. I cover these topics and more:

* Where to find people to draw & paint
* Camera considerations
* What to look for when you're out shooting
* How to be inconspicuous
* How to process your photos after a shoot
* Getting the scene onto your canvas/panel
* Editing out the awkward bits
* A bit about my process
* Skin tones
* Smart mixing on your palette
* Achieving atmospheric perspective
* Tackling hands, faces and other details
* And where to stop...

"This is a very satisfying painting tutorial. It hit all the important areas and I found it mesmerizing to watch Carol work her magic with a brush while clearly explaining each step.
I highly recommend this or any of her artbytes.

""The usual Gung Ho Greatness." Carol's modesty leads to very, very direct instructions. She communicates beautifully. I have all her tutorials and every one is lean, direct and thoughtful."

"it is clear Carol wants to help you become a better painter, and she edits out unnecessary wordiness, gives great examples and moves on. You will pause often, if you are taking notes. A great tutorial for new as well as experienced painters."

"I got so much out of this tutorial!! Carol is so detailed and so generous in sharing her experiences, her insights, and her knowledge. The Photoshop info was very helpful, and the tutorials were extremely enlightening. $15 very well spent! So much to absorb; I'm sure I'll watch this again and again."
