Watercolor Still Life

Here's a demo I did when the "new" watercolor brushes were introduced in Painter. While I agree that they can produce a more  "authentic" watercolor look on the computer than the now-called "digital" watercolor brushes, I still wish they were faster and less memory intensive.

    This was done when these were introduced, probably Painter 7 as I recall. I think the paper was Hot Press Watercolor, which is still available in the paper libraries in Painter 10.

    I actually think the Italian and French watercolor papers in the default library in 10 look pretty good.

    Here's another hint about the paper textures - I always enlarge them and increase the contrast in the Papers palette to help bring out their qualities some. I know I did this here. And as you've probably discovered, in many variants cases you actually have to LOWER the grain slider number to exaggerate their "depth".
