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.
