Jon Foster Painting Techniques

Techniques Learned from a Seminar at Concept Design Academy

So I took this seminar with Jon Foster at the C.D.A. (see links on the right toolbar,) and let me tell you: AMAZING! John is not only an incredible artist, but, the nicest person I’ve ever met in this Industry!...

Jon about to start the seminar with Kevin Chen to the right 2 - Jon painting 3 - Close up of the oil painting.

Jon tends to start his painting with oils (yes, oil paint.) He then waits for the painting to dry, and photographs it, brings it in Photoshop where along with Corel’s Painter, he’ll finish the painting digitally...

1 - Me making Jon nervous 2 - Jon and I, creeping up to Jon, and Amy FaceBooking over my head.

One of the great things about Jon, is that he’s very approachable: he wanted us to see how he worked, how he applied the paint, and what he used. He also talked about things most Artist can relate to: when do you know you are done with the oil painting, and when to go digital...

Fantastic workshop!...
