About This Class

In this class I´ll show you how I use different tools in ADOBE® PHOTOSHOP® software to remove the background of my watercolor illustrations. Painting in watercolors is great, but it´s even better when you can isolate your watercolor illustrations to create different compositions, change your background color and edit each element separately. I´ll demonstrate how I use the lasso tool, the eraser, the pen tool, the brush with layer masks and the way I work with tiny, hard to edit details.

For this class you need a basic knowledge of ADOBE® PHOTOSHOP®, but if you don´t know how to use it yet, here on Skillshare you´ll find great classes on it.
