Melissa Gallo and I were having a Go To Meeting, and we started playing with the new Corel Painter Essentials 5. After playing for a while, we decided to record the rest of the session and share with you.
Corel Painter Essentials 5 is and upgrade to Corel’s popular Painter Essentials 4. It is an extremely rich program for a small price. Melissa and I barely touched the features included with Essentials 5. I did a quick watercolor from scratch and a auto-painting with some extra brush work using oil type brushes. I hardly touch oil brushes anymore, but Melissa made me…just kidding. Do go to Corel Painter Essentials 5 web site and check out all the new stuff added to this version of Essentials. The list includes NEW…particle brushes, mirror and kaleidoscope painting, user interface, navigator, brush tracking utility, 2 in 1 mobile painting interface, real-time effects preview, transformation tools, native 64 bit for Mac and PC, plus more. And I didn’t even get to the enhanced features. The best part, Corel Painter Essentials 5 is on sale for $39.99 until November 28th. I think that is an amazing price.
During the recorded video I created two images, one from scratch and the other using Essentials Photo Painting features. I wasn’t thinking when I finished the watercolor roses and I deleted the image without saving. I was not interested in saving the image, but without it, I didn’t have anything to post on my blog. So…I made a similar image off camera for the blog.
Here is the recreated watercolor rose:
Next we explored the photo-painting capabilities of Corel Painter Essentials 5. It was fun. Here is the image created during the meeting:

OK folks, that’s it…two posts in one day. Wow.
