I did this one in Painter 11. It probably can be done in Paint Shop Pro as well, both being Corel products. One for the PC and one for the Mac.

Thats nice Gunner

I've got painter essentials 3, not sure if that will do the same thing, which part of painter did you use for that nice brushstroke effect? I'm still learning the corel applications.
Thanks

Re: How to add random brushstrokes/texture 2 paint

You need to go into the menu that has textures in it and apply them but be aware that in Painter 10/11 at least there is the capability of choosing 3-4 different ways of applying them. Also when you finish that go into focus and do the same thing. But be careful it is so easy to overdo it.

I don't have Essentials any more so I can't look into the menus to check out what I am saying.

Painter 3 has a few textures to choose from, but dosn't seem to have those nice swirly brushstrokes that you've got on your image. Oh well, it must be time to spend some money and upgrade lol

It would be good if we could import a different brush just for something different. I know we can adjust the brush in Artwork but it always seems to have that "Akvis Artwork" look to it.
With Impressionist are we able to import our own brushes?

Re: How to add random brushstrokes/texture 2 paint

take a look at Artrage, Corel Photo Paint Essentials 4 and Filter Forge. for really deep paint i tend to look to Artrage first and their palette knife brush.

Re: How to add random brushstrokes/texture 2 paint

ok, i downloaded the free starter edition of artrage to this machine so i could show you some results.

the first one is straight art rage done is a fairly large brush so i could do this quickly. the brush is quite adjustable so you dont have to have it this rough looking.

the rest of these are a mix of your original image and the art rage image using different blend modes in paint shop pro to adjust the look and texture.

now, you've no doubt noticed that this is more than adding a texture. art rage is a painting program and not a filter program. so, you do have to paint to get your results and that may not be what you're looking for. nonetheless, here it is:
