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.
