Painter Webinar Introduces Breakthrough Brushes

I've been working on John's Brushes 2, which attendees of the All Things Painter Webinar will receive. Below is a quick sample to provide a sense of the high fidelity with these brushes emulate the appearance of their traditional counterpart:

This webinar will detail how to work with these brushes, as well as adjust them to suit your needs. I believe these brushes represent a breakthrough in emulating the appearance of digital watercolors that has not been previously possible in Painter. The brushes specifically take advantage of a Painter 11 feature which makes this faithful emulation possible. Even if you don't currently own Painter 11, a focus of this webinar will include general natural-media emulation techniques.

Attendees will receive a download link for both John's Brushes 2 and a recording of the webinar.

The webinar is $30. You can sign up for the All Things Painter webinar by clicking the PayPal "Buy Now" button below. If you don't have a PayPal account, an option to pay via credit card is offered as well.

Viva la Painter!

  1. Hi John,
    Will the brushes work with Painter X?

  2. Hi:

    I've developed 2 approached to enhancing the Digital Watercolor brushes; one technique—which I will detail in the webinar—is specific to Painter 11 and will not be available in Painter X. The second technique is not version specific and will work in Painter X.

    I'll be posting examples of both techniques in the next couple of days,
