Learning from the judges
Recently, I had the honor of participating on the selection panel for Ballistic Publishing's recent publication, PAINTER - The World's Finest Painter Art, a showcase of the world's best Corel® Painter art. Whenever it's possible for me to attend a show's opening, I use the opportunity to chat with the juried artists. A topic of conversation that invariably comes up is "What do you look for in a winning piece?"

Jeremy Sutton's portrait of Nina Simone
Kim Nalley, owner of the Jazz at Pearls club in San Francisco, recently exhibited a stunning Jeremy Sutton portrait of Nina Simone. Entitled Mississippi Goddamn, Sutton's portrait was created in Corel Painter, combining paint and photographic imagery, then printed on canvas and completed with the addition of traditional paint.
Dennis Orlando, digital fine artist/painter
Everytime a new version of Corel Painter is released, I'm like a kid in a toy store; I know I'm going to need days to just play!
Dennis Orlando is an artist through and through; since high school, he's known that producing works of art is his calling. After he discovered Corel Painter in 1991, digital art became his passion. In his opinion, Corel Painter is the only choice for digital artists. As he says, "nothing else works like Painter."
