How Calibrating Your Brushes in Corel Painter 12 Makes a Huge Difference
I haven't painted an apple for over a year, imagine that! Tried one today and used a calibrated Wet Blender Saturated to put some colour on then unsaturated it to use as a blender to pull the colour around. I discovered recently that calibrating your blenders makes a huge difference in the blending ability of your brushes, as well as in the application of colour.
Here's my apple. The reference photo was from Google Images.
To paint this purple ball I only applied a few strokes of deep purple with the Wet Blender Calibrated brush on the left side. The rest was painted by pulling the colour around and blending with the Wet Blender Calibrated Unsat. and the DWC WIW Unsat varying it with diffusion at 2-3 % and no diffusion. The Preserve transparency box ws checked because I feel it's easier to blend that way. I also added a little bit of Wet Soft Wash in a fairy dark red/blue glaze to intensify the bluish purple colours.
I am not able to load brushes to this website, but I'll be happpy to email them to you if you sign up for my newsletter :)!
