I should be working on important things but here I sit doodling with brushes. . . This is Nese’s kitchen shelf at La Cascade. Such a delight to have breakfast here. She even provides a pitcher of hot steamed milk to make lattes ~ just grab a cup. For those of you new to Painter X3, just open a plain canvas, chose brushes and start playing. Pick your favorite colors and create an abstract trying as many brushes as you can ~ it will help you get the feel of how they work, how they flow, and how they react on canvas with other brushes. Scribble away and fill that canvas! You can always use it again as a background or texture.
