My first attempt to create "something" in Corel Painter. With only 10 minutes of watching video tutorials and playing around with the program I dived into the program trying to create a painting. I struggled with understanding the dynamics of the paintbrushes and was really lost on why the paintbrush would keep it's "dirty color." Obviously, making it very
challenging to paint since I did not know what color my brush mixed
into or how to "clean the brush." Furthermore, I naively expected Corel Painter to have similar keyboard shortcuts and tools than Photoshop.
Please note that these are not a complaints, just observed reactions and part of my learning "as I go" process.
A detail of the concluded effort on the head of the cherub.
This old master drawing was my guide while painting the sketch.
