With Color Expression expressed as “pressure”, it is very important to set rather high color jitter and smoothing levels. This is what gives you the color variation and texture. Without this the colors blend and might appear very dull.

The brush is not so easy to control, but you can gain some mastery with familiarization and with practice. Give yourself extra canvas space to crop just the best part of your painting. Experiment with the Watercolor controls, the Particles Common Controls and the Spring Particles Controls to vary the brush looks. If you get a brush look you like, save the variant immediately. If you don’t save it then you will likely never see that look again – ever!!

These brushes are very sensitive to brush calibration and every other brush control slider which affects them, with each nuance movement giving you something different.
