Re: Holy Trinity

I really like painting using the pattern stamp (it's under the clone tool in PhotoShop). There is no need to set a history state. Once you get your image color corrected, touched up etc, select the entire canvas and under the Edit menu, choose Define Pattern.

At this point, you make a new layer and pick a brush and start painting on the blank layer. Make sure Aligned is turned on in the options bar. and from the Pattern picker in the options bar, choose your defined pattern - it's usually at the bottom of the list. I usually add a white layer below the blank layer too so I can see low opacity brushes better.

The beauty of using the Pattern Stamp Tool is that you don't have to keep setting history states if you want to add a new layer or play with a new brush without spoiling your current work. Just add a new layer and paint some more.

The Brush Engine is your friend. Add textures, jitter color and opacity, apply wet strokes. It sure has opened up a whole new world of creativity for me.
