Painter Lite Features

Brush categories

Painter Lite includes 16 Brush Categories and 97 Brush Variants to get you started painting. Watch our brush category videos to get an idea of what the variants look like.

Acrylic, Air Brushes and Artist brushes

Acrylic brush variants, much like their real world counterparts, are versatile brushes that let you apply quick-drying paints to the canvas.

Air brushes apply fine sprays of color, which carefully mirror the feel of a real airbrush in action.

Artist brush variants help you paint in the styles of master artists. For example, you can paint in the style of Vincent Van Gogh, with multi-shaded brushstrokes, or in the style of Georges Seurat, with multiple dots combining to form an image.

Chalk, pastels and crayons

Chalk brush variants produce the thick, rich texture of natural chalk sticks and have strokes that interact with the paper grain.

Pastel brushes, which range from hard pastel styles that reveal the paper grain, to extra soft pastels that glide on to completely cover existing strokes.

Basic Crayon produces textured strokes that interact with the paper grain, and the opacity of all the chalk, pastel and crayon brushes is linked to stylus pressure.

Erasers, F/X and Gouache

Eraser brush variants erase down to the paper color.

Bleach brush variants erase to white, gradually lightening by removing color.

F/X brush variants can give you an array of creative results. Some add color; others affect underlying pixels. The best way to appreciate the F/X brush variants is to experiment with them on an image and a blank canvas.

Gouache brush variants let you paint with the fluidity of watercolors and the opacity of acrylics, and the strokes cover underlying brushstrokes.

Oil brushes

Oil brush variants mimic their real world counterparts. The fine soft glazing strokes are semitransparent and can be used to produce a glazed effect. If you want to cover underlying brushstrokes with opaque paint, select the bristle oils and round camelhair. Plus, some Oil brush variants let you mix media as though you were working with traditional oil paints.

You can use colors mixed on the Mixer pad and apply them directly to the canvas with select variants. The colors can then be blended with the oils already on the canvas. Each brushstroke created with the oily bristle and thick wet oils variants load the brush with a finite amount of oil, which is then transferred to the image. As you apply a brushstroke to the canvas, the brush loses oil and the brushstroke becomes fainter.

Pencils, pens and sponges

Pencil brush variants are great for creating rough sketches to fine line drawings. Like their natural counterparts, Pencil brush variants interact with canvas texture. All of the variants build to black and link opacity to stylus pressure.

Pen brush variants includes Pen and Calligraphy brushe. Pen brush variants create realistic effects without the drawbacks of traditional pens, which can clog, spatter, or run dry.

Sponges let you create a variety of textures by applying the current paint color to cover or blend existing colors.

Impasto and markers

Impasto brush variants let you create the classic technique of applying thick paint on a canvas to create depth.

Marker brush variants replicate conventional, real-world markers. The brush variants range from fine point to blunt and have a variety of nib shapes and opacity levels and allow color buildup and pooling.

Digital Watercolor

Digital Watercolor brush variants produce watercolor effects that react with the canvas texture. The width of Digital Watercolor brushstrokes is affected by stylus pressure.

Sumi-E (Ink)

Sumi-e brush variants let you create flowing ink and wash painted brushstrokes.

Trendy tools and effects

Blenders and Palette Knives

Blenders and Palette Knives

Blenders affect underlying pixels by moving and mixing them. You can also use Palette Knife brush variants to scrape, push, or pick up and drag colors in your image.

Kaleidoscope Painting

Kaleidoscope Painting

Create electrifying kaleidoscope effects on canvas with this exciting tool that only exists in Painter! Use your choice of media to paint transfixing patterns and colors, using three to 12 mirrored planes.

Mirror Painting

Mirror Painting

Save time as you paint with perfect precision! This tool copies every stroke you make onto the opposite side of your canvas. You choose whether it's mirrored horizontally, vertically or both. It's double the fun in half the time!

Paper textures

10 paper textures

With traditional art media, the results from using different types of media depend on the texture of the surface to which it is applied. Choose from 10 different paper textures to create your masterpiece.
