Newsletter Photoshop Freebies 05

A few tips on Painting with Photoshop impasto oil paint. Note: There are NO layer effects used in this video!

Using Photoshop Impasto Paint brushes

I will be doing a series of tutorials on how to use the GrutBrushes Photoshop Impasto brushes but this short video above shows a few brief tips on using the impastos, focusing on this week’s newsletter freebies the deep textured Stump Trough oil brush and the flat blocking brush ‘Tone Soak’.

To summarise:

  • Vary your stylus pressure and use short strokes for a more organic look
  • Use a flatter Photoshop brush to block in large areas
  • Press softly on your stylus to blend or soften texture
  • Push harder when you want more texture
  • Use alt/option to pick colours from your painting

Thanks for being a newsletter subscriber. See you next week!
