Says Jeremy Sutton:
When I paint, my goal is to create magnificent and powerful images that express my soul while embodying the essence of my subjects. I strive to capture the personality of my subjects and my response to them. My paintings evolve like improvisational dance. The process follows its own path, colors being chosen intuitively, surprises unfolding in every moment, each brush stroke feeling its way into the painting. I sculpt in color and form, continuously transforming and remolding my image, like working with wet, malleable clay. What I share with you in this tutorial is one example of such a process. Every time I paint with Corel Painter, I find myself using different brushes and colors according to what the image inspires.
