Impasto Painting Quick Start Tips

 

Here are a few quick tips to get you going with the Photoshop Impasto brushes

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

FAQ

Q: Do these use any layer effects to get the effect of depth?
A: No, these use a series of tricks with nothing but the regular Photoshop brush settings to give the appearance of depth. This means you can paint with them as is, mix them with any other brushes and don't have to worry about applying any layer effects. They look that way from the second you paint with them. No effects required.

Q: What about really thick paint, like squeezing it straight out of a tube?
A: You can enhance the thickness a bit using layer effects. Used sparingly they can add to the work but the problem is the thickness per layer is universal, which is not how masses of paint would be in real life.  For really super-thick impasto oil you either have to paint the brush strokes in (its almost like painting a painting of brush strokes at that point) or use an app like Verve Painter that has thick paint effects built in. Personally, I don't think there are currently any apps out there really do a very good job of very thick paint yet as it is all still mostly just a beveling trick, and doesn't include any physical modeling of the paint structure.

Q: Can I import the Photoshop brushes into Procreate?
A: You can, but it doesn't do a perfect job of converting them so I manually converted all of them to native Procreate format. There were two that just didn't work in Procreate, so I added two new oil brushes to the Procreate set to make sure it's even. You can find the Procreate impasto oil brushes here

    OMGosh! Best brush sets for photoshop! They feel real and look real when you paint with them! I have looked online for photoshop brushes that would work great with my illustrations and I found only a few but they didn’t live up to what I was expecting until….GRUTBRUSHES!!! I downloaded the free set and I was convinced and hooked and I bought them ALL! Not one single regret I LOVE MY GRUTBRUSHES!
