The Blends, a Group of Paintings

The Blends is a series of digital paintings I did with brushes I made myself. 

I had recently started exploring brush making in Painter.  I decided to try my hand at making my own brushes.  Painter has an incredible amount of settings for brushes.  Making brushes is a very complex process.  But it is a lot of fun. 

I wanted a brush that would blend. 

I also wanted a brush that would paint and allow the layer beneath to show. 

Not knowing much of anything about brushes, I didn’t realize I could have just reduced the opacity of the brushes I already had.  This would have solved one problem.  But I just wasn’t happy with how Painter blends. 

So I put together a series of brushes that blended and painted as I wanted. 

I did a series of digital paintings using only my blending brushes.

    You are learning so much and trying such cool things, Kerry!  This art is also calming, whimsical, and playful to me.  I want to also look more through this.  I have some confusion about links, especially with having to use passwords, but I’ll figure it out.  It usually takes just a clear moment. 

    I really like it!!  You do a lot of work!

      Hi Leigh,

      I’m just so sorry you aren’t doing well. I feel so much empathy for you. I’m saying extra prayers for you.

      I’m so glad you liked my art and that it was soothing.

      Your password is not working for what?

      You are so brave and have so much inner courage.

      Take good care.

      Kerry
