Corel Painter Essential Training: Paper Texture

Paper selector, paper palette, and changing the character of the paper By John Derry

"Expressive brushes." This is instructor John Derry's two-word answer as to why Painter is such an effective tool. When used with a Wacom tablet, Painter can elevate digital mark-making to a form of creative self-expression. Combining the aesthetics of traditional media with the freedom to experiment, Painter X Essential Training not only delves into each tool, palette, material, and brush, it also speaks to the artistic concepts of simplicity, stroke, proportion, and perspective.

In this clip, host John Derry talks about Painter's paper textures, a virtual paper grain that some of Painter's tools interact with. He covers Painter's paper selector as well as some of the brushes that respond to paper texture and grain. He also covers the paper palette, how to change the character of the paper texture by scaling it up and down via the size slider, and how to use the brightness and contrast sliders.
