I am continuing to explore watercolor and rice paper in Painter 2023. I guess we can shorten the name to Painter 2023, since Corel no longer owns the product. Painter is owned by Alludo currently. Whatever…doesn’t affect us directly. Anyway, the watercolor. I struggled with this one, for some reason. I never print so I usually paint a a low resolution of 100 ppi. But I am thinking the images will look much better at a higer resolution. I’ll let you know when I do a few more paintings at a higher resolution.
Enjoy this one, called Mistletoe.
See you in the next post…
I like Painter too. I didn’t know Corel sold it. Love you picture.
Thanks Sherry. Yes, Painter was sold a couple of months ago.
Does that mean Corel and Painter have parted company?
The end of an old friendship.
Read David’s answer that will show up after yours. He gives the whole story.
Skip. I really like this painting. Yes!,
hey David. Thanks man!!!
I’ve been experimenting with rice paper and pastels
I was just thinking about playing with pastels. It is second favorite medium.
Skip, I really like your painting, done with Painter 2023.
You wrote: “Corel no longer owns the product. Painter is owned by Alludo currently.”
I found out that it’s not actually that “Corel” no longer owns the product. Corel Corporation, in Sept. 2022, rebranded its corporate name from Corel to Alludo. So, the same company still owns Painter, but the company name has changed. And you’re right; Alludo refers to the product simply as “Painter” (e.g., Painter 2023).
I did not know that. Thanks David. I guess I should have looked it up.
Carry on with your good works; forge ahead with your trusty digital stylus.
Chuckle…I will sir!
Weird and weird!
I like it
Thank you, Beth!
Thank you kindly, Beth.
Skip another beautiful watercolor from you. All the best.
Good to hear from you. Thanks!!
So good to hear from you. Thanks for saying hey.
Another beautiful watercolour Skip! Thank you!
Your support means a lot. Thank you.
It’s a beauty, Skip. Nice to see you back painting. Chicken soup for the soul!!!
Good morning! Skip, I don’t see Mistletoe as the “star” in a painting very often, but as usual your work is unique. I like it! You are correct, I think, about the higher pixel count for printing. I look forward to seeing your next creation!
Thanks for the comment, Marilyn. Higher resolution is definitely the way to go for printing. But I don’t print. What I am thinking is the image looks nicer at a higher resolution on screen.
When I was finishing the painting, I kept looking at the bare trees. I kept thinking they needed something, and Mistletoe seemed appropriate. I guess it is odd, but I find myself looking for Mistletoe as I drive or spend time outside. I have always been fascinated with parasitic plants.
