How do I achieve this effect


New to the community, I'd like to know how to achieve the effect of a uniform brush painted surface as in the attached example using painter. Any tips and hints are much appreciated. Thank you very much to any responder

  • 1. Create a new layer and use something like a palette knife to draw the shape in black and white. (You may also want to blend to get those broken edges)
    2. Make a Selection from the shape using Select Layer Content (Right-click on the layer)
    3. Hide that layer
    4. Create a new layer
    5. Paint using a Real Watercolor brush to get the runny paint effect. (The Selection keeps the paint trapped within the space.)

    That's one way to do it.
