Painting with Grainy Thick Paint

Painting with Grainy Thick Paint

By Skip Allen

Painter Master Elite Skip Allen provides an in-depth look at the 2 new Thick Paint brushes in Painter 2019: Grainy Thick and Wet, and Grainy Smooth Blender. These brushes are very sensitive to pressure and to paper texture, and you will see how you can use pressure to vary your brushstrokes from very light and streaky, to thick and heavy. You will also learn how to use the Mixer Pad to sample multiple colors to load onto your thick paint brush, and how to go over your brushstrokes with the blender to smooth them out and mix the different colors together. To see these brushes in action, Skip uses them to add more definition, color and texture to a landscape painting, offering many helpful tips along the way.

    Great tutorial! I have one question. What is the colour set library you are using about 6 minutes in? Is it in there and I missed it?
    Thanks kindly.

      Hello Kenneth,

      Just to confirm, which brush library are you looking in? These brushes should be in the Thick and Wet brush category under the 2019 brush library.
