How I design Surreal Paintings – LIVE! Lachri

How I design Surreal Paintings - LIVE!  Lachri

See how I design my next colored pencil painting in photoshop before a pencil ever hits the paper! Colored pencil doesn’t leave much room for mistakes, by designing my surreal pieces the way I’m going to show you, I know exactly where each element of the painting will go ahead of time! I will be showing you how I come up with my surreal designs by combining coral, fish and one of Than from Tidal Garden’s cats!

I’m using Adobe Photoshop to edit photos for this livestream. Here is a link (affiliate) to their site if you want to check out their plans!

★★Tidal Gardens★★
Tidal Gardens is a coral farm in Ohio that has a youtube channel focused on corals and has a patreon that makes high-resolution reference photos available for artists starting at the $5 level.
