Master copies

trying to reproduce the texture and brush strokes in photoshop. First one is sargent's watercolors and the second one is after richard schmid. Learned a lot from just doing this.

These are great, man! That "watercolor" is ridiculously believable, even when I'm told it's photoshop I still say watercolor ;)

These are awesome. I would venture to say that these are the best real mediums replicated in digital I've seen yet. The schmidt painting is amazing and the study looks like it's going to vastly improve your brushstrokes, I know it would mine. I love the minimalist brushstrokes in these paintings.

I'm not familiar with schmidt and I'm having a hard time finding any of his work. Do you have any links?

I'm still trying to figure out how to reproduce natural looking brush strokes myself. Looks like you got it!

wow these look great. I like the traditional painting quality you got in these. Was it hard to make the brush textures? I just end up borrowing stuff from other artists, I am so not good in making my own brush..lol
