If you want to watch the watercolor demo Aaron and I did yesterday, it is now available on You Tube to watch. As promised during the session, I have put together the brushes, papers, and the scripts I used in the demo. These tools are for Painter 2016. I’m sorry, but some of the stuff uses newer technology found in Painter 2016 and will not work in earlier versions. Please do not try to install in earlier versions of Painter.
To watch the recording, click the following video. You can use the icons at the bottom to expand the videos size or go to You Tube to watch. I’m still trying to figure out how to put it on my You Tube Channel. I hope you enjoy it.
This is the watercolor I painted during the demonstration:
Thank you, Aaron for inviting me. I enjoyed the live streaming process and hope to do it again soon. And a big thank you to all who attended.
Gorgeous painting, Skip. I’m sorry I missed the live session yesterday. I’ll have to catch the video up at You Tube. Wow, what a great collection of brushes. Thank you. I figured there would be a few. You gave us a ton! Maybe this will be what I need to get out of my painting funk. I seem to be under the impression I am the world’s worst painter, and I can’t do anything. I know these things pass, but yuck.
I’ve been there Kerry. I know what you mean about a painting funk. Friends tell me to just paint through it; I am sure they are right, but it isn’t any fun. Yes, it passes, but knowing that doesn’t seem to help. When I am in it, I can’t see the light at the end…so naturally I assume it will last forever. But…it has always ended. Sometimes it ends when a friend makes a comment like the beginning of your comment. You said you liked my painting…that always makes me feel good. I hope your funk ends soon. Big Hugs, Skip
Thanks, Skip. I’ve recently started taking my photography seriously. So I’m just focusing there. That helps some.
That is a great idea! I need to go on a shoot. I’ve been stuck in the house for too long. It is always a good idea to work the creative muscle in a number of different ways. Thanks for reminding me!
Are you on Instagram?
I am, but I never use it. A friend has told me some stuff about iPhonography, which sounds really fun. I have been thinking of getting a couple of lenses for my iPhone. I’ve downloaded an app that turns the thing into a DSLR. If I get interested instagram would be a great place to upload.
Hey Pixel Skip!!!
Yep, that’s me. Glad you found me.
I’m @kerrycmitchell on Instagram. Who are you?
I couldn’t remember so I had to go to my phone to look myself up. Then I couldn’t find the instagram app. Finally found it and started following you.
I just bought a macro for my iPhone. It’s from Olloclip. I highly recommend it. It has 7x, 14 x and 21x. This latest one has new technology from Olloclip. I can give you names of friends who are very accomplished with it on Instagram if you want to see how well it works. To my eye, it’s hard to tell the difference between the Olloclip and a macro lens on a DSLR. In fact, one friend prefers her Olloclip for certain shooting situations over her DSLR. Me, I’m not so accomplished yet. This takes lots of practice. But I’m having a blast!
Oliclip is what has been recommended and what I was going to consider. Oh gosh…I have no time for practice…sigh.
You can find a minute here and there. That’s what I do. If you are attached to your screen saver say goodbye to it. It chewed mine up. Otherwise, I love it.
It better not eat my screen saver. It is one of my precious cats…LOL.
The clear plastic thing. It will eat that. I thought no way it would do that. They say on their page it will do that. I didn’t believe them. But yep! It just destroyed it! It may be my inexperience putting on the lens.
Oh…that’s unfortunate. I am very hard on phones. I need scratch protection. Hey…I’ve got to run…supper time here in the east.
Hi Skip I really enjoyed the live steam, I also received an email for the brushes they are great. I love watching you it’s so relaxing. You make it look so easy and the flowers are beautiful. Thanks so much!
Thanks Lynn, glad you enjoyed the meeting. I’m afraid it went on too long…I need to learn to shut up. 🙂
No no! It only felt like an hour the time flew by. I’m in Canada so it was afternoon for me. Never shut up never never! Lol!
Could you please send the demo in a file that android understands.No matter how i tried, could not get video to play.
Sent from my T-Mobile 4G LTE Tablet
I’m sorry, but I don’t know what type file that would be. Can you watch You Tube videos? If so, try pasting the following link into your browser and watch from You Tube. Video On You Tube
Really enjoyed the live session! I am currently working hard at watercolor and this really helped. The roses are just fantastic. The brushes are wonderful. Love watercolor and hope to improve. Waiting for more classes I especially love the floral watercolor.
Hey…Haven’t seen you around lately…good to hear from you. Thanks for the comment and the lovely compliments.
My goodness I can finally comment here, I went into Word Press and tried again this time it worked fine.
Skip and Aaron, I enjoyed your live video very much and learned so many things. Really looking forward to your “goodies” Skip!! You are always so generous with your talents!! Thank you!!
Glad you enjoyed the recording. The “goodies” are already posted. Look for Watercolor Demo Tools in this post and click it. Then save the download and unzip.
Skip I enjoyed your WC webinar with Aaron…painting and conversation is ticketeeboo.
Wanted to suggest that after you finish your Tibor Nagy brush set, then paint some of the ruins of Detroit (re: google images “ruins of Detroit”).
Then when you teach a “Nagy does Detroit” master class, I’ll be the first to sign on. (grin) –Marg
Thanks Marg, Loved the post. I will remember that when I finish the brushes. Sorry for the late reply, my sister fell and developed a large hematoma on the left side of her brain which required a crainiotomy. She is finally out of ICU and on the floor, but there are still issues. I am not able to get on the computer much right now.
I finally got to watch it Skip and loved seeing your techniques and how you use those seemingly complicated W/C settings in Painter. As always you line work is elegant. Thanks so much for doing videos like this……Emms
Big Hug Emms…
Thank you bunches.
Thanks again Skip! So many brushes! It will take some time to sort them out..
and of course the papers, always welcome but cant find the one you are using on top, in the video?
Thanks again Skip! 🙂
Thanks Kenneth. Many of the variants are very close to each other. I wanted to get them out early and didn’t cull them. Have fun, Skip
I just found your wonderfull downloadable brushes etc. Is there any tutorial how to install them properly? What is the difference between the category the library and the zip file?
If you will search for Brush Management in the search box in the title bar of the blog, you will find several tutorials about installation of brushes. The zip files would be used by older painter versions…prior to Painter 12. The category file will install into you currently selected brush library, and it is the one most people want. The library file will create a new library containing only that category. Hope that helps, if you still need information, just holler back. Skip
