Chapter 3: Paint The Background

Chapter 3: Paint The Background

Create a pop-art style portrait in this 6-part acrylic painting series curated for beginners! Now that you’ve chosen a portrait photo and converted it into a digital outline, it’s time to start painting. In this chapter, Elad offers guidance in painting the background of your canvas in a stylistic way that is also allows our Smart Trace technology to recognize it for tracing in the next experience.
