Fun with Audio Expression Brushes


Happy Holidays Everyone,

I wish you a joyous season and a very happy New Year.

At the Digital Art Academy Community, Karen and I were doing some videos and giving away a few brushes.  I decided to add a bonus brush to my group.  For something different, I made three variants using Audio Expression painting.  I was actually surprised at the results.  The first attempt was a little on the funky side.  I wasn’t sure how to control the variants.  You can get a bit of control, but the excitement of these variants is to let them run wild and play off what the music brings to the table.

OK…so this was the first image I did.

In the following video you can see me paint the above image.

After I posted the image and video, I heard from some that they couldn’t get the variants to work like they did for me.  I did a few test and realized it had to be a difference in resolution.  I provided this video.

Then i did a practice landscape and left it soft.

The next painting I captured in a video.  I do the initial painting and then bring in thick paint and pastels to give a few details.

And here is the video:

Following are the three new variants I created to make these paintings.  To load them, you need to open Painter, decide which category you want to put them in, then go to Brushes > Import > Brush and navigate to where you saved the variants.  The brush will be installed in the currently active brush category.   These variants are for Painter 2020.  (EDIT) After posting, the variants have been altered to work with 2018, 2019 and 2020.

  1. Love this landscape. This will be so much fun just painting to see what happens with music. I had forgotten all about this feature.

  2. Really fun. It is a great learning experience just to see you figure out what id]s needed. This will help me be a freer painter.
