View Full Version : Still life with bottle and Oranges (Painter8)

Woohoo , I got my box o' Corel Painter 8 (I miss the real paint can like in Painter6 ;) ) delivered today and here's my first thing I made today

A still life with oranges and a bottle. It's a lot rougher than I usually do things and I think it's a direction I'd like my acrylics on canvas to gho in (more roughness). I haven't been doing many acrylics in the last year (mostly ther ink/watercolours on ebay).

I used a bunch of brushes but a lot of oil pastel and chawk brushes. Also some palette knives (I should get a wacom intuos as rotating the pen in your hand should affect the edge angle of the palette knife ... my graphire doesn't do that)

Anyway , here's a larger version


I made this at a printable size and have a much larger version saved . I want to start making some printable size ones as I think I'll get that epson 1280 and start making archival prints this summer :cool:

Overall, I feel Painter 8 is a more fluid program to use than Painter6 .

I like the texturing. I haven't seen many still lifes which use such warm colors. Makes it read as really hot and gives it a different spin. Nice!
