  1. Hi Skip
    Your desert Oasis download seems to be broken. And I know it is pretty old as well, but would still have liked to try matching your webinars.
    Thanks for all your work!

      • Hi Skipi
        Interesting. The smaller downloads do work for me as well, but this one always downloads empty. I tried a week ago or so the first time, and it still does not work. Would be very nice if you could email them to “pixielorraine AT gmail.com”.
        Thanks again!

  2. Hi Skip,

    Thanks for providing this brush library. I too am not having success importing the library (in Painter 2016). The link works, the file downloads, but when I attempt to import the library file I get an error message in Painter that states:

    The selected item could not be imported, your library has not been affected.

    Thanks again.

        • Hi Emily,
          I just checked the link for the Desert Oasis library and it is working fine. Did you try to download and it didn’t work for you?? It should be OK.

          • Hi Skip,
            The link did work — I had assumed it was for an older version of Painter since you sent it directly to Scott Jenkins for Painter 2016, but I guess the files in the link are the new ones that will work for Painter 2016…? The download did work fine. I haven’t gotten to installing the brushes yet — need to figure out how to do that first!

            • Hi Emily,
              The installation is very simple. First download either the library or the category files. Library will have a .brushlibrary extension and the category will have .brushcategory extension. Now you have two ways to install.
              1. Simply double click the brushlibrary or brushcategory file and it will automatically install the new library or it will install the category into the currently active library. You don’t have to open Painter first. That’s it.

              2. Open Painter first. Then go to Brushes > Import > brush category or brush library. Select one of them and then navigate to where you saved the downloaded file and select it and click open. Painter will install the category into the currently active library or create a new library with the category in it.


  3. Hi Skip,

    I’m also having a problem downloading the Desert Oasis brushes. I’ve tried several times to download both the library and the category but keep getting a 0 bytes file, I had a similar issue with your Buttery Oils, but that is working now and has successfully downloaded. Thanks for generosity in creating and making these brushes available.


    • Hi Tony,
      I am currently resetting the links away from Hightail. I am very disappointed with their support. I have notified them of the problems over and over again and now I am done. I just finished updating Buttery Oils, which is why it downloaded successfully. And, I have also just finished updating Desert Oasis. Please try the download again and let me know if it is successful. I plan to spend the day re-linking all the download pages. Thanks, skip

  4. Hi Skip

    Yes that’s fine now. Thank you very much for all your work, much appreciated.

    Looking forward to trying the brushes.

    Best Wishes for the coming festive season from Devon, UK
