I'll show you how to customize your work environment in Painter to use it for your exact needs. I'll talk about the color palette and how to mix colors for any kind of digital artwork. I'll then go over some of the safety nets you can put in place when working in a digital environment. We'll create a painting of wildflowers, then utilize it in a collage combined with other elements from a recent trip to a wildflower-covered mountain.
