My Zenith Project is learning Corel Painter and creating real-looking paintings from photos that will be printed on canvas, watercolor paper, etc.

I will create 3 “paintings” and my themes/prompts with be Peaceful, Loving and Alive. 

I enjoy making photos look hand painted or drawn and I want to get better at it and produce real-looking content.

This Zenith project is a new challenge for me because I have never used Corel and it has a steep learning curve. However, it is something that I’m excited to learn so I will put in the time and effort to take on the challenge.

Here is a gallery of the process:

I also created an Instagram marketing platform. Click on any of the final images to see it.
