The purpose of this Tutorial is to build experience in in visualizing a non photographic image, making complex selections, and making decisions about color texture which will affect the design and creativity of your painting. Any brush which has “grain” in it’s name can be used. I used the soft pastel. With pastel and chalk brushes a grain setting of 7% gives the maximin grain. Taking the grain setting to 100 percent pretty much allows you to paint without grain. This is a fun way to create a painting and a good way to experiment with creating a painting without cloning from a photo. Just play and enjoy.
