Good try again with Painter Mark! I think we'll all be experimenting for a long time to come - it's the only way to get to know those brushes and what they're capable of achieving. I haven't enjoyed working with anything that says "grain" so far. I guess a penny will drop in that regard eventually...but don't hold your breath LOL.

This painting reminds me, because of the dark background, of old 16th century European paintings.

Interesting Fruit....

Mark - That is awesome !!! Simply Awesome ! You like Painter huh ?


I have been trying out a few ideas i was working on for an alternative method of sharpening and came across this nice effect, which i will work into an action.

It appear that by changing the blending mode can produce some rather nice results.

Thanks Neve & Axle!

Neve, while this tool has grain, it's not very strong. A little pressure on the tablet takes most of it out. I too like how the background came out. It was about the last part I did and really made the image come together.

Axle, you're way too kind. I think my Painter images have been a bit "ham fisted" compared to yours. You have a very smooth, elegant touch. As for your posting, I especially like the 'HidingOriginal' result. Was the Photocopy layer simply than filter run on a copy of the original image?
BTW, it looks like your Painter tutorial might be generating some extra sales for Corel. I bet if they bundled it with their trial version, they'd win over much of the 'non-artist' crowd. You should ask for a commission.

-Mark

I couldn't survive without blending modes, so far all used in PSP8.1 though.
My grandson took over at my compute and only left this morning so hopefully I can get some serious painting done starting in the morning.

I remember this one. You've inspired me to try again. I buzzed, VP oil with a strong canvas texture, then did another layer with septia, then another with just a teensy bit of PE arctic.

Many thanks Crex for this easily understood tutorial. I'm keen to try it ASAP. There were quite a few things I learned anew from it and I appreciate your patience putting all this together. I enjoyed browsing your site and especially enjoyed your Celtic designs.
