I'm pleased to announce the release of my latest custom brushes title for Corel Painter 2017, John's Gouache. I've had this project percolating for some time and I have finally put together a set of brushes and associated tutorials.

A unique property of my gouache brushes is that the initially sampled source color is used for the entire painted stroke. This technique limits the number of colors used in the painting.

Painter's other cloning brushes do not behave in this manner. Rather, they bring multiple colors into the stroke, which results in too much complexity for a believable gouache rendering.

John's Gouache can also be used as expressive paint-from-scratch brushes. A color set created from a popular traditional gouache color range will be included with the brushes. 50 minutes of video tutorials are included to show you how to get the most out of this brush set.

I'm continuing to get John's Gouache ready for release, which includes testing and refining the brush set and workflow. This painting is a test image for working out the brushes.

The original photo is from my iPhone 5 (with an Olloclip wide angle lens adapter attached). The image below shows a progression from the photo to the final painting.
