Orchid: an Oil Painting of Flowers


The author of this tutorial is Tatyana Fedorova. The tutorial was created in Adobe Photoshop, but you can do the same in any other photo editor compatible with the AKVIS plugins or use the standalone version of AKVIS ArtWork. The "Orchid" image was also used in this tutorial for AKVIS Sketch (creating a drawing in watercolor pencil).

Tatyana writes: "I’ve graduated from art school and have some successful artworks. As much as I enjoy painting art I really like photography. I do believe that plug-ins like ArtWork have a great future and might become a new “wave” of the art. Everything is so quick and easy. The result is amazing!"
