Are you wondering how I do it? What’s the process that I use to get from A to Z?
- Paint Sunflower into the Background image
- Add more petals and lines
- Add additional lines – looking for the feeling of motion
- Remove some lines – too much activity
- Remove much of the Blue color – found center distracting
- Strengthened Yellow on Petals
- Crop image for a more dramatic composition. Repainted center seeds to strengthen focal area.

Today’s video demonstrates the brushes, paint and surface used in digitally painting with oils paints in Corel Painter.
The brushes shown in the video were used by artist Jackie Jacobson in the above Painting of Sophia.
After you watch the video, come back to the Sophia painting above, and check out the brushes used in the video demonstration today.
Corel Painter Digital painting studio exactly replicates traditional mediums, without the clean up and turpentine.

Using Photos for Reference
TAKE A SEAT AND ENJOY
Today I am working in my ultimate digital art studio.
This is an oil painting demo using the Wacom® Cintique touch/pressure sensitive monitor and Corel® Painter 11.
I will be demonstrating a portrait using photos supplied by the client.
I start each portrait in a similar way, but I honestly think that I never use the same process twice.
For me, this is an event, a challenge and an exploration.
Join me in the journey.
The original photo was taken from a very high perspective.
I chose to come in much closer in order to capture the personality of
the two adorable sisters.
I spent quite a bit of time exploring different compositions.
This is the cropped image that I will use for the painting.
I love their little feet in the original photo, but that just won’t work.
And it’s their hair and eyes that become the focus.
I decided to do a square composition, so I cropped again.
This is the block-in stage.
I play around with paint and color in the background,
and then roughly block-in the two little ones.
About 14 hours after the block-in stage, my final decision… It’s done!
And now we have, what I think is the perfect portrait of the sisters.
The painting is printed on a 20″ x 20″ canvas.
So…what do you think?
The above painting demonstration shows how I paint traditional portraits. It is how I was trained and what I know best.
But then…there is always time to learn something new. I have a wonderful client who wanted me to do a portrait of her grandson “Oliver.”
Of course, she wanted Oliver painted in the Andy Warhol style. I told her I can’t do Andy Warhol, but she insisted I could and so I give you…
painted in the Andy Warhol style
by Jackie Jacobson,
who said she couldn’t do it!
The print is on a 40″ x 40″ canvas and looks incredible in the grandmother’s home.
Well there it is. How I paint portraits.
It’s really a brief summary of a long process, but I hope you get the idea.
I love doing portraits. And I’d love doing a portrait for you.
You can find some of the details in the portrait painting section,
on the right hand side of this page.
But you can find out much more by giving me a call,
and discussing your needs.
I just finished a wedding portrait for a couple
that were married 40 years ago in a backyard wedding.
They are thrilled to finally have a memory
from that special day, so very long ago.
Summer is my time off from the street fair and the perfect time for me to spend painting portraits.
I hope I can do a special piece just for you.
Thanks for taking your time to watch this demo with me.
I’d love to hear your comments.
Please leave one.
