8 Paper texture and brushes
In Corel Painter, the texture of brush strokes comes from the brush interacting with the texture of the canvas. I can easily switch between the default and any custom-made textures, using the Paper libraries or Paper Menu (press Ctrl+9). The brushes that I use in this workshop are based on the Pastel brushes category. They’re customised to suit my painting style, but also have two important features: they reveal the texture based on the pen pressure; and they blend colours perfectly.
