In this tutorial, Painter Master Elite Karen Bonaker introduces you to the Sunset Aglow Essentials brush pack. You will be guided step-by-step through the painting process and learn how to use the various brushes to create your own interpretation of Bob Ross’ Sunset Aglow painting. In the first stage, the Bristly brush is used to create an area of light that will add depth and dimension. Next, form the clouds and add details with the Distant Clouds and Sunset Clouds brushes. Once the sky is developed, the Sunset Lake and Mountain Glow brushes are used to create a horizon and mountain range. Then, add trees, foliage and grass with the Sunset Foliage, Trunks and Sunset Fir Trees brushes. Along the way, Karen provides many tips and shortcuts that you will find helpful for this and other painting projects.

      Hello Will,

      This brush pack is currently only compatible with Painter Essentials, and would not work in PaintShop Pro.
