Watercolour painting with the ‘Ocean Liner’ brush

Digital painting with the ‘Ocean Liner’ digital artists Photoshop watercolor brush
Sometimes I get too excited by the latest brushes and neglect the older ones, so to try to break that habit I’m going back into the brush box and doing some paintings with older brushes. Here’s a painting I did today with one of my favourite watercolour brushes, Ocean Liner. The video is sped up so that it lasts about a minute but the actual painting took about 12 minutes.

A fine watercolour brush with a wide ranging opacity that makes a good sketch brush as well as a detailer for finer work. With a controlled stroke, from firm to light, the Ocean Liner brush will give a nicely graduated line from fairly dark yet soft to the faintest hint of a sketch in one go. The cottony texture gives it a warm organic feel.

Here’s a sneak peek at the latest Photoshop Brush I’m working it’s a pastel brush (or crayon if we’re being honest) it’s called Wax Factor, and I’m already in love with it. It’s very fast, has a nice full texture when you draw with light strokes but with a bit more pressure easily fills in and gives rich full colour coverage. I will probably give away a hundred of these for free the day I publish it so stay tuned.

Update: It’s now available and FREE for this weekend (Until November 11th 2014) Download this brush here.

One interesting feature of this brush is that when you press hard it has a rough texture, but with very light pressure it becomes a blending brush and you can use it to smudge and soften your strokes or blend them together without switching tools.

Loosest Digital Oil Paint Brush Yet

My latest Photoshop oil paintbrush ‘Mount relief‘ is probably the loosest of the oil brushes (although you could say that it’s more of an acrylic)  I love painting with it as it is very expressive and has a very controllable flow from rough and scratchy to a rich fill depending on how hard you press.
As often on brush release day, today’s free Photoshop brush (today only – 09/06) Get it here: https://www.grutbrushes.com/shop/photoshop-brushes/mount-relief-photoshop-oil-brush/

After that it will be available as a single paid download and also as part of the all Photoshop brushes package.

Here’s a video of the brush in action. While portions of it are sped up, the beginning, middle and ending is real time. Note the realistic ‘feel’ of the digital brush strokes painting on and the unique organic texture that varies with each stroke. Best watched full screen in HD to catch all the pigmenty detail.
