ÃÂ For professionals who like creative control we give them Layers for blending multiple paint styles and brushes to paint on and off the impressionism strokes. We have also included an ultra-impressionism effect called Ã¢ÂÂTacheÃ¢ÂÂ to cover the painting with broken brush strokes or dabs of color that literally stand out, apply them sparsely or cover the entire painting, the choice is yours.
A pro workflow adds impressionism styles per layer. With Layers, users can blend styles using brushes to paint on or off areas in the painting! Also, included is the powerful Ellipse Detail tool to add finely painted details to faces, flowers or to create focal points in landscapes. Once completed , resize then hit the ‘Apply’ button to render small brushstrokes inside the Ellipse. With layers photographers and artists now have the power to composite multiple impressionism styles for impressive results.
Ã¢ÂÂ¢ Alla Prima (‘wet-on-wet’ or ‘all-at-once’)Ã¢ÂÂis great for portraits! This beautiful paint style starts by filling the painting with an abundance of brushstrokes. A library of artistic finishes compliments this style by adding light, color and movement with controls over strength.
Ã¢ÂÂ¢ En Plein Air (in open air) is perfect for landscapes. This stroke-filled effect consists of eight artists’ palettes created by famous impressionists. Use them as they are or edit the paint colors to make your own palette. The Save Preset feature keeps the palette and all the layers intact for future projects.
Ã¢ÂÂ¢ Tache (‘spot’ or ‘blot’) applies broken brushstrokes throughout the image. This technique of laying thick patches, flecks and dabs of color is great for making paint look as if it stands out from the surface. Apply a light spackling of strokes or fill the painting with dabs of colorÃ¢ÂÂthe choice is up to you!
Ã¢ÂÂ¢ Canvas layer is added to each painting created. By creating a canvas layer, it can now be turned on or off for viewing strokes created on previous layers. As with traditional methods, the canvas is an integral part of the painting, so we have locked the layer to keep it from being accidentally deleted.
