I’ve been watching Ryan Church’s DVDs and have a question on what kind of specific brushes he uses. I’m using painter 7 and he’s using painter 6 so I’m assuming there will be some problems. But I’ve already loaded v. 6 brushes back into the brush pallette.
I want to know what kind of water color brush he’s using when he does his initial blocking of his images. My brushes seem to be either too grainy or watery. Btw, I’ve already lowered the contrast to “0” in the paper attributes so the paint won’t take on the texture of the paper but I still can’t get the smooth and dry look he gets.
Second, when painting watercolors on the “canvas” layer, I’ve noticed v. 6 doesn’t make a new water layer so that you can paint on the canvas layer. Can I paint on the canvas layer in v. 7 with water colors?
Third, my Round Camel Hair brush doesn’t react the same way as Ryan’s when painting. Let’s say I picked a blue color to paint.It does this weird thing where the beginning of my brush stroke will always be white and as I put more pressure on my pen, then the color blue will appear, leaving me with a white and blue stroke. Is this normal? Is this it a v.7 thing even though I’ve loaded v.6 brush in? Am I using the right camel hair brush?
I hope someone can help me in this dilemma.
Thanks again in advance.
