One of the best ways to avoid mistakes is to get a 'fresh impression' of your painting.  The techniques I show in this video apply a studio art mentality to your digital process - and it's easier than it sounds!  The idea for this techniques originates with my natural tendency for 'tunnel vision'.  When this happens, I focus on smaller and smaller details of the painting- often at the expense of the larger vision.  For this reason, it's important to learn a coping mechanism for 'tunnel vision', which for me is a simple set of Photoshop shortcuts.  How do you avoid tunnel vision?
