Painting In Photoshop

Creating a portrait painting in the style of Basquiat. This is not a tutorial as such, but a way to introduce students to the paintbrush tool. The document here is the handout that students get...the techniques are demonstrated in class via a data day I'll get around to writing an actual tutorial for the meantime this is what I've got...and thanks must go to Craig Malyon for introducing the idea in an inservice many years ago. UPDATE: I have added a video tutorial to the resources. This is one that I did for the students to use. Materials: Photoshop or Photoshop Elements and internet access
