In the traditional world the hake brush is used for painting water and sky. What brush is used in the digital painter world to give the same effect?

Thank you kindly for your feedback.

Hi Dee,

It depends a lot on the software you're using.

I use Corel Painter and artists using that software paint water and skies with many different brush variants. There's no single way to paint water or skies and there's no single style. Often a Painter artist will use multiple brush variants to paint whatever they're painting, including water and skies.

Sorry to be so vague, but that's how digital painting is. There are many says to "skin a cat", some that could not be done using traditional media.

Jin,

Thanks for your response.

I am using Painter 1X.

The mediums I am using are Acrylics and Artist Oils.

I will try the different brush varients in each medium.

Don't know if this will help but I use the impressionist brush for skys and water then use the soft blender for the sky to soften and the grainy flat and round blender for the water at a very low opacity. :wave:

If it comes close to any of your beautiful paintings, I will have accomplished alot.

Thanks.

Hi Dee,

You're welcome!

In the February 2007 issue of the Painter X newsletter, the Painter Canvas, there's a tutorial by Cher Threinen-Pendarvis on using the new RealBristle Brushes to paint a beautiful sky and clouds.

Though you don't have the RealBristle Brushes category in Painter IX, you could follow the tutorial (or most of it) using either the Oils variants or Artists' Oils variants. If nothing else, Cher's painting can be an inspiration.

Here's the link:

You can also just apply some strokes and then with the same brush, you would set Resat to 0. This will make the brush behave like a blender since it won't load the brush with paint.

You are using a great program I use it and Painter.

You can always try and make your own hake brush in PSP7:)
