creating foliage and the like
I'm having a horrible time playing around with brushes trying to get some bushes going. I want to do "quick" little bushes with moderate detail such as here in this photo:
they have the dark tones, mid tones and highlights, some leaf detail and so on. I've been trying to get my paintings to look similar to this for a while and I get close to the desired look but it takes me so long to get there. Impasto sorta gets the effect but it's to strong.
I could just use photoshop and use some brushes I have and get the speed painting i want quickly but I honestly really enjoy working in painter and photoshop is just sorta meh for me.
I have tried to use papers but my custom papers don't really get the desired effect. And I can't think of a good pattern for the pattern brush...
So any suggestions would be great :3 <- I want to do this speed painting in an hour. Not spend half an hour on a single bush trying to get the feel right ;___;
- I'm used to using painter for figures and patterns just not foliage >.>

Create a bunch of nozzles, seems what you want.

But I don't want to make it look like I pasted in photographs and stuff. I still want that hand painted look. Can you give me an example of how I could use the nozzle like that?

You can make a custom brush (Captured Dab) the same way you can in Photoshop. Using a custom "leaf brush", or a few variations, with Jitter, Direction and Spacing adjusted - and some old fashioned manual painting - might get you close to what you want.

Oh okay, I didn't know I could do that... So how does the Captured Dab work? That sounds exactly what I want to have.

I'm having issue creating a good foliage brush. Does anyone know a natural out of the box? Right now I have 2 brushes I enjoy using the Smeary Flat oil brush and the Wet Oil Brush. They're good for general use and I can paint plants and such fairly quickly but for certain things they take some time to get it right. I just want something to help with speed painting.
