Dragons Lurking?

Peril for me, is the looming threat of painting architecture; my least favorite element to paint.  Photoshop to my rescue.  I’ve inserted a detail of  photo reference into my digital painting to completely avoid painting the building.  I use this trick sparingly but on rare occasions, this fix saves time, energy, and the project.

Hope the very general tutorial below inspires you to get past the dragons and to revel in the creative process.
