Loose and Expressive Thick Paint

Loose and Expressive Thick Paint

By Karen Bonaker

In this tutorial, Painter Master Elite Karen Bonaker introduces you to the new Thick Paint media brushes in Painter 2019. Thick paint has a look and feel of traditional Impasto, and adds depth and texture to your strokes. Karen first gives you a tour of the thick paint media and brush panels and demonstrates the various brush types in this category. You will also learn how different surface lighting settings affect thick paint and how to emulate the look of rich, thick and expressive brushwork. Karen will show you how she created “The Meadow House” using the new Thick Paint brushes in Painter 2019.
