John's Impasto User: Janet Stoppee

Artist Janet Stoppee of M2 Media Studios recently painted this Blue Ridge Mountains street scene of Sperryville, Virginia.

Janet writes:

I painted this inspired by the Impressionists. It is cloned from a shoot Brian and I did capturing our favorite tree in the Blue Ridge mountain village of Sperryvile. I used John’s Impasto Medium Gloss Varnish on a few places like the tree trunk, steps and a few other areas to give it more movement.

I really tried to step away from too much photographic detail. I used the Fan - Flat Cloner Brush and made different variations of it.

Artist Janet Stoppee created this painting of a door knocker using John's Artists' Brushes for Adobe Photoshop CS5. Using a photograph as a reference, Janet utilized my Cloning Layer Action (which is included with John's Artists' Brushes) to flow the colors of the reference photograph through her currently selected brush. The result is a non-destructive layer painting,

Says Janet, "I love the brushes in Photoshop and I never had the experience of getting totally lost in actually painting in my previous digital painting experiences! I am going to work on cloning an image today and then adding more color using the MagicPicker color picker, that John recommended. This is all new and very exciting."

Janet's husband, Brian remarked, "Janet just got into John Derry’s latest brushes, actions, and textures over the weekend. This the fastest she’s been able to produce an image like this."
