Tonight I am doing a FREE (yes, really!) webinar at the Photography Schoolhouse. You can register for FREE! You may be wondering where I have been, well between Facebook and my blogging at Pixiq it’s been a wild ride keeping me away from my own blog. But it’s time to get back to connecting with my own blog.  Tonight’s webinar is about easy art for Portraits!

Marilyn Sholin’s  SECRET WEAPON:
Portrait Art on Steroids

Wednesday Nov. 30, 2011 at 6:00PM Pacific Time – Price = FREE

 

Give your clients art choices for their portraits that only take a few clicks and no painting experience necessary. We are talking about innovation and formulas I’ll give you that only require a few steps and from there you can experiment and create your own. This only takes a few minutes. We will be using basic Photoshop skills (even beginners can do this) and a few new filters like Nik Efex 4. You will be amazed at how fast you can do this and how these new techniques will sell. Be innovative and do something new and different from all the other photographers.

I will be showing you some simple changes with Postworkshop, Topaz Filters, Alienskin SnapArt 3, Nik Filters EFEX 4. Here are a few examples.

Art for Photographers in London SWPP

Thursday, January 6th, 2011

Saturday January 15 2011 Four Hours

This is an exciting program I am giving at the SWPP convention in London next week. I am really looking forward to sharing at this program to help other photographers who are frustrated and stuck in a grind of high school seniors and weddings to find a way to make more money and also sell their images as fine art over and over again.

You don’t need to know much…..you can use many different programs and plug ins but the point is to DO IT! I think some are mistaking this four hour super class for a Corel Painter lesson and it’s not. It is much more than that! It’s about the entire journey of becoming who you want to be!

With over 25 years of experience as a studio owner and master portrait artist, I was silly to take a giant leap with my eyes closed and my mind open into the art world of painting. I still can’t draw a straight line,  do draw stick figure doodles and never had formal art training. Yet, my paintings (developed from photo reference) have hung in airports, won best of show and even  had a one woman and group shows in a very short time and are selling internationally. The finished original canvas paintings have form and texture that are all created with the simplest of acrylic paint products available worldwide.

I am going to show how easy it is to create these finished pieces of art and the magical road to selling them over and over and over creating new income flow that is pure profit. Create it once, sell it a thousand times over in multiple products and market to new collectors who then will become your studios new portrait clients also. Working it full circle will increase sales in all areas.

Sit in with me even if you never painted with a brush and never drew before. I have done all the research and created the information and details to take your studio into a new area of touchable art in simple terms and materials. This is a life changing time for photographers. This is a product that will put your studio above all others and have your clients talking about you as an artist.

Come to SWPP and REGISTER FOR THIS SUPER CLASS

You do NOT need anything but to take notes at this class. If you want to follow along in Painter or Photoshop that is fine, but it is NOT required!

Back to Art,Work and Life!

Wednesday, February 24th, 2010

Hard to believe that so much time has passed since I wrote my last post but those of you on my newsletter emailing know that no dust has been settling under me. Been hard at work getting back to my art and life and preparing for the crazy month ahead of exciting travel and workshops and events. I’m off to Raleigh for the North Carolina State Convention for a few days to see old friends and make new ones and lay the groundwork for my October event in Blowing Rock. But before that there are all the Asheville Art Workshops and Italy and VEGAS BABY for WPPI. Instead of my telling you all about this and all the cool FREE Corel Painter brushes that are online now, I’ll just send you to the newsletter so you can get all the links,discounts and news yourself.  Check out Digital Art Events and Freebies including Digital Painting Beginner Workshops in Asheville,NC.

Hope to see some of you at the upcoming events and looking forward to this exciting year!
