Appendix A. Brushes and Variants
With more than 500 default brush variants in Painter, deciding which brush to use when creating your artwork can seem like a daunting task. To make life a little easier, this appendix will give you an overview of the looks of the different brush variants. As mentioned in Chapter 4, "Painting," each one of these variants can be customized to give you endless possibilities of brushes. Some brushes allow you to paint directly on the canvas, while others are effects brushes that require an existing ink stroke or image to be present before you can use the brush. In this appendix, those effects brushes are applied to rectangular ink strokes to illustrate their effects.
