As I gave the presentation I suppose I have to be careful not to show bias. But it was amazing how much interest was shown by members.
As far as the ‘demonstration/workshop’ went, this proved problematical as several people had more advanced versions of the 'Brushes Application' than mine! So, I may have ended up learning more than I could convey to my audience (I have kept the original version of Brushes as I prefer it to the latest versions). Despite this, I felt I was able to impart some useful tips that I have learnt over two years using ‘Brushes’.
Art ‘Applications’ on a Computer Tablet do not make it easier to create artwork, just faster to try things out. During the workshop I emphasized the use and advantages of ‘Layers’. Layers allow the artist to be more creative. They also make it very easy to experiment and be daring, as in the picture attached which shows the same painting on two different coloured backgrounds. These examples were created in an instant. Something that would take you hours using paint and paper. Jeremy.
PS: I am trying to learn more about the latest version of 'Brushes' so I will be able to help anyone having problems. If you do need any help, please ask me.
USER MANUAL TUTORIALS... For those who have the early version of brushes this is a link to the User Manual This is a fairly large PDF file so give it a chance to download. Sorry, but so far I have not been able to find any worthwhile guides/tutorials for the latest version Brushes 3.
