View Full Version : best way to blend colours / shadows

05-19-2005, 09:20 AM
Hi guys

I recently got Painter 8 and I'm just starting to get into it. I did a couple of paintings using the standard oil brushes and they look ok.
The only thing that gives me a headache is blending colours nicely, mostly for shadows on people and such.

What is the best/easiest/quickest way to do this, to make it look nice & seamless?

Sorry if this is a stupid newbie question...

Thanks & Regards,

I usually use the Palette Knife with the resat set to 0% (the resat is at the top on the tool bars next to opacity, bleed and so on)

Takes a bit of practice but amazing once you get used to it :D

Hope that helps :)

HI ..

The "just add water" brush is wonderful for smooth blending.

Happened on a set of "Air Blowers" brushes for Painter 6..they are super for blending!
