    Great tutorial! I am finding this two years later, and would love to access the brushes used in this course. Is that still possible? Thank you.

    Several of us who watched this tutorial on YouTube are still trying to figure out where the brushes mentioned in this tutorial can be downloaded from. If anyone could please shed light on this or provide the link to them I’d be very grateful. Thanks for this tutorial, it is amazing good and packed full of useful information!

      I believe if you are using painter 2016 or later you have to open up an older brush library. Open up the brushes panel, click on the options tab on the right, go down to Brush Libraries, and then Painter 2015 brushes. You’ll see a lot more brushes open up, they streamlined in in 2016 for some reason.
