Screen Glazing: Painting with Light

Screen Glazing: Painting with Light

By Jason Maranto

Glazing brushes offer Merge Modes, which can be a powerful time-saving feature. This video showcases the power of the Screen Merge Mode using two of the new Soft Screen and Clouds Screen Glazing brushes included with Painter 2019. The Screen Merge Mode is useful in many comic book coloring, illustration and concept art techniques because it allows you to paint very rapidly, starting from a dark base and painting with light.

    A wonderful lesson. My only complaint is the picture of Painter showing the brush selections is blurry.

    A wonderful innovation for artists who are accustomed to, and would like to glaze but don’t have the patience for the drying of layers. For the masters in oil this took months!!
