A Corel Painter Master, Karen Sperling brings to the Painting for Photographers Video Tutorials Volume 2: Landscapes her 20 years of experience explaining how to use Painter gained through writing the software's first several manuals and several Painter books, including the bestselling Painting for Photographers Volumes 1 and 2; producing her two other highly regarded video tutorials for painting adults and children; writing Artistry tutorials and her popular ezine, Artistry Tips and Tricks; teaching Painter at local PPA affiliates, schools and the national PPA and WPPI conventions; and teaching at her own renowned Artistry Retreats.

Click here to test drive two of the brushes that are included with the Painting for Photographers Video Tutorials: Landscapes.
To install the brushes in Painter:
Then, when you launch Painter, you should see a Brush Category called KarenSperlingSample and inside there are two variants, Formation01 and TexturizedBlender06.
Use Formation01 to paint the grass tips that you see in the landscape image above. Use TexturizedBlender06 to blend the bottoms of the grass brushstrokes.
Notice that when you paint, the brushes deposit multiple strokes, which speeds up painting. You'll receive more "quick fix" brushes with the Painting for Photographers Video Tutorials Volume 2: Landscapes, and with the other Painting for Photographers Video Tutorials Volume 1: Portraits, Painting for Photographers Video Tutorials Volume 3: Children's Portraits, and the Artistry Bonus Brushes, including Artistry Bonus Brushes Volume 1 (Portraits), Artistry Bonus Brushes Volume 2 (Landscapes) and Artistry Bonus Brushes Volume 3: Textures.
You'll be amazed at how quickly you can get these great results that you see in the images on this page. The key is not just having these quick, multiple-stroke brushes, but also the art lessons provided in the Painting for Photographers Video Tutorials Volume 2: Landscapes.
