Happy to Support Karen Sperling's Efforts
I have been a long-time fan of Karen Sperling's work. I have her previous books and
Karen’s online classes are great therapy! I was happy to hear that she is working on
Painting for Photographers Volume 3 and I was happy to enroll in a new Artistry online class
to support her efforts.
If you are looking to venture into something new and fun, taking Karen’s classes in Corel Painter
is the place to be. Even if you don’t think you have talent or can paint, just try a class and Karen
will help you get started. And it will also help to get Painting for Photographers Volume 3 published!

Welcome to Karen Sperling's Artistry

If you're a professional photographer interested in offering your clients painted portraits based on your photos, or a hobbyist who would like to paint your photos of your kids, grandkids and travels, or anyone who would like to turn your photos into paintings, then you've come to the right place.

Karen Sperling's Artistry features Corel Painter and Adobe Photoshop online classes, Corel Painter tutorials and Corel Painter and Adobe Photoshop books for turning your beautiful photos into painted works of art.

You'll also find Painter- and Photoshop-compatible textures and custom Painter brushes.

The Artistry instructional materials are created by Corel Painter Master Karen Sperling, who's been writing about and teaching Painter longer than anyone (she wrote the first several Painter manuals when the program debuted over 20 years ago!).

Karen Sperling's Corel Painter instructional materials get rave reviews like these:

Corel Painter information Presented in a Clear, Easy-to-Digest Manner
There are “people who teach” and then there are “teachers.” Karen Sperling is a natural born teacher.
She presents her Corel Painter information in a clear, easy-to-digest manner. She provides the information
that you need to be successful with Painter, without burying you in a ton of unnecessary techno talk.
Her lessons are very well planned, and are recorded and presented with a professionalism seldom seen in online lessons.
Karen is wonderfully generous in sharing her knowledge, experience and talents. She holds nothing back--and her many years
of experience are presented in a way that allows the viewer to experience success from the very beginning.
After watching nearly 100 different videos on Painter by a vast number of different instructors/masters/teachers,
I chose to invest in Karen’s courses. While each instructor brings something unique to the table, I felt that Karen’s
approach was the one that I wanted to use to learn. She does not dictate rules and methods, or intimidate by over
complicating the software. Instead, she empowers the user with knowledge, confidence and the personal freedom to make
their own artistic statement.

Happy to Find Karen Sperling's Hand-Painted Style
Karen Sperling has the hand-painted style I’ve been searching for since the beginning of my digital art journey 5 years ago -
everything from portraits to landscapes.

Likes Karen Sperling's Use of Color
One of the things that I would like to learn how to pay attention to is adding color that didn't exist in the original photo.
I've seen TONS of digital paintings from photos and most of them (including my own) do not impress me because most of the time,
it's just smearing around pixels from the original photo.
To me, part of what makes a painting a painting is the introduction of color that did not originally exist. The painting from your
book cover I think is magnificent because it still contains the realism but is clearly a painting. When I look just at her arms...
there are SOOO many colors there. THAT's something I'd like to focus on while we work together.

Karen Sperling is the Best Corel Painter Instructor in the World
I use Photoshop, Lightroom and Corel Painter as a combination in many of my images.
Karen Sperling is the best Corel Painter instructor in the world and she made me a master in the Painter software.
