With Watercolor layers, you can paint with brushes that apply pigment that percolates and diffuses into the paper grain, and paint washes that blend into the existing wet paint.

  • Get creative by using clone color
    In this series of tutorials you will learn how to turn a photo into a painting using clone color.

Get started with basic quick cloning of a flower still life, then move on to cloning a landscape with other paint brushes, and finally get creative when you work on a portrait.
