Taking a break from the Mermaid and started this one...I roughly traced this one off then lifted the canvas to watercolor and deleted it. Flood filled the canvas with dark brown.

That's turning out very well Marge. I think the bg is class, like the tones of her hair in it. The dress to is going to be exceptional, it looks very real now.

Thank you Frank....I used the rough scrubby brush in the FA2 brushes found here (http://www.pixelalley.com/Painter7/painter6and7_brushes.html) it is about the 3rd set down..Chris Cimonetti's :wave:

Smokin,

It's Chris Cimonetti's Fine Art 2 brush library. The brush library folder is named "fa2" and inside it, the (only one) brush category folder is named Fine Art 2.

There are several brush variants with the word "SCRUB" in their names, none with "Scrubby", though.

Which one is it, Marge? I count nine variants with "SCRUB" in their names. ;)

Sorry about the Scrubby, Jin.....Technically it is the "SCRUB A Rough" I also used the DRY SCRUB Rough to blend a little. :wave:

's ok, Marge.

Just thought it might help Smokin since he asked what brush variant you used and wouldn't know without the actual name(s).

They all work differently so that's why it always matters what the brush variant's real name is.
