hey, i'm just starting to play around with painter, but I was at the Amsterdam workshop two weeks ago, and I saw all the guys (Android, Jason, Kev) apply the following technique:
- create new layer
- set to multiply
- apply glazes (use white to erase the watercolor glaze)
- drop layer when satisfied
- repeat until masterpiece is ready
hope this helps...

What brush variants did they use to apply glazes?
When you say "watercolor glaze", to you mean Painter's Water Color variants, and if so, which?
Thanks in advance,

might have been unclear...
I think (from what I can remember) that they actually used their regular brushes (digital airbrush and chalks mostly) to apply glaze-like effects.
I didn't see any of them use a "real" watercolor or other liquid tool during the entire workshop.

oh yes, and they always used rather large brushes right up to the very end when they started on the details...
they really stressed that you should always use as large a brush as possible.

I've heard other Painter artists say they use some of the simpler brush variants to get a watercolor effect.
If they were using the Airbrushes' Digital Airbrush and the Chalks' variants, that might account for their being able to use larger brush sizes without a problem (assuming they had no problems and were working on large images).
Other artists say they use the Pastels variants for a watercolor look.
It's common for Painter users to think that the brush category name is their true guide to which brush variants will give certain effects, but as we can see, that's not always the case.
We can feel free to try any brush variant and tweak any of them to get the results we want, whether it be watercolor, oils, or whatever. "A rose by any othe r name.....", after all.

i'll give the pastels a try as well...
i must say, i've been experimenting with their approach and it does give a nice glazed look; not very watercolor-like, in my opinion, but very cool nevertheless. rembrandt-y, you know...
