1 Color Dy­nam­ics are a good way of adding sub­tle hue vari­a­tions that mimic the mix­ing of colours on a can­vas. Fore­ground/back­ground Jit­ter is great when you have a colour range in mind. Oth­er­wise, Hue Jit­ter on a low per­cent­age is usu­ally fine.

2 Set­ting your brush’s An­gle Jit­ter to Di­rec­tion is a good way to cre­ate or­ganic strokes that show­case your brush’s tex­tures, such as the hairs on a bris­tle brush. I like to use this when paint­ing hair or for bold im­pasto brush strokes that follow the form.

3 Man­u­ally ad­just­ing the ori­en­ta­tion of your brush can give you great con­trol over the look of your brush strokes and is great for flat brushes. Us­ing this method does re­quire a lit­tle more pa­tience, but it can yield or­ganic and de­ci­sive painterly strokes.
