  2. Yes, John's Watercolors is now compatible with Painter 9. The purchased download now includes a ZIP file specifically for Painter 9. If you've previously purchased John's Watercolors and want the version for Painter 9, you can use your original download link to access the johns_watercolors.zip file, decompress it and get the included version for Painter 9.

  4. I just purchased these. Where is the download link? There are no instructions or any notes saying when to expect this. I need to complete a project which is why I purchased them.

    Thanks,

  8. Hi John, Your brushes are truly amazing! I'm using them with Painter 11 and the Cintiq 21 digital tablet.

    For the first time I've been able to get my digital work to look like my traditional illustrations.

  9. I'm using Corel PhotoPaint 12 and a Wacom tablet. Do these brushes work with that program as well?

    Thanks for sharing your talent

    Stay inspired!

  10. Hi Michelle:

    No, the Watercolor brushes are Painter-only brushes. Sorry!

  11. JOhn, is there someplace I can look to see what these brushes are like? HOw they work, etc.? How are they different from what is in Painter, now? THe end product doesn't do me much good as I can't tell how the brushes help get you there.

  12. Hi Jeff:

    You may want to check out my free John's Watercolors webinar download. In this video, I do a start-to-finish watercolor using my brushes.

    I hope this helps!

  13. Thanks, John. That did help. However, another quick question. I can't find how many brushes are included and maybe a description/example of each on. Is that available. Do you just get the brushes used in the webinar? 3 or 4?

  17. Hi there John! Just tried out your brushes in Painter 12 and the last version works really nice! Even faster then the new "real water colour-brushes" do. Would be nice to hear your experience ...
    Regards from Sweden!

  18. Hi,
    I was curious if these are part of Painter's digital watercolors or the watercolors set? With the erasures and blending, they seem like Painter's digital watercolors, but it'd be nice to use these dab-heavy brushes you've got in conjunction with some of the more typically "wet" watercolors in Painter 11. Thanks!

    1. Hi Steve

      These are not part of Painters watercolour sets. The Gel Brushes are a combination of dry brushes and the Wet Brushes are Digital Watercolour. There are wonderfully expressive and easy to use. I love them! Since this comment was written so long ago, you probably already know that, but others might not.
      Cheers,
      Joan

  20. Hi John

    My students are enjoying using the two brushes from your Watercolour set that you kindly allowed me to include in my Custom Sets.

    Thanks again!

  21. Hi John,

    You mentioned that the brushes are "in Painter 9, Painter X and Painter 11 compatible formats" but that was a long time ago. Can I use them with Painter 12? Thanks.
