Abstract Brushes by digistyle Abstract Brushes by digistyle
My little contribution to the Painter resources, 10 custom abstract brushes.

I'd love to see how these get used, so drop me a line if you like. I know how difficult it is to keep track of what brush was used on which painting, so crediting is not a requirement for using the brushes. However, useful feedback and linking will most likely result in the posting of additional brushes.

All I ask is that you don't claim them as your own creations and that you have fun making great art with them.

Descriptions of brushes:

1. abstract 01 digital wet: A fringed, wet brush.

2. abstract 01 soft cover: A "pebbley" textured brush.

3. abstract 02 drip: A drip brush. This brush will work on the main canvas. It will only work on paint that already exists on a layer, not the blank layer itself.

4. abstract 03 soft impasto: A "rippley" textured brush with a subtle impasto buildup.

5. abstract 04 buildup: This brush produces a textured buildup of color.

6. abstract 05 soft cover: A nice brush to use if you want to add some randomness to your painting.
Good for creating atmospheric effects when used at about 50% opacity.

7. abstract 06 two color: A brush that is suited for foliage effects.

8. abstract 07 soft cover: A spikey, broken edged brush.

9. abstract 08 hard cover: A scratch, edgy brush.

10. abstract 09 hard cover: A splat brush.

These really are quite wonderful. Thanks so much for your generosity. I have paid for brushes that are not even close to yours in quality

These brushes were featured in the June 2007 issues of the Official Corel Painter Magazine. I posted a little celebration piece here: [link]
