Join John Derry for an in-depth discussion in this video Painting with special media, part of Painter 2017 Essential Training.
- [Instructor] What Painter refers to as special media…utilizes dedicated layers to create specific visual effects.…As a result, Painter's special media layer types…include the Watercolor and Liquid Ink layers.…These layers are smart in that they contain much…of the specific code necessary to emulate…a medium like watercolor.…A special media layer is required in order…to individually separate brush qualities…from media-specific characteristics.…
Watercolor is an especially tricky medium…to digitally emulate.…Variables such as wetness, evaporation, pigment suspension,…media absorption and the like must all be accounted for…in order to portray a convincing emulation of watercolor.…All of these qualities are encoded…in the special media layer.…In our painting, we are going to utilize the Watercolor…layer and Real Watercolor category brushes…to add a background to our painting.…Let's get started.…
