One of my favorite features in Corel Painter is the ability to capture a pattern and use it either with the brush tools or as a fill. When I needed a coordinate print for the Felted Plaids collection, I turned to an old leaf print I had done a long time ago and never used. After playing around with the brushes for a while, I managed to get these cool patterns – they remind me of a forest – or the Scottish Highlands – because of the branches and twigs that are in each and every square.
Plaids have squares. The woodland prints have squares…so I decided on another square to round out the collection (couldn’t quite resist writing that). This one has a subtle vine print on the background and each of the squares is actually made up from the scanned and manipulated Daniel Smith watercolor squares in the first post.
