I've read a lot of your advice on the forums and want to thank you for how much it has helped. Painter is a deep program and your explanations have prevented me from pulling half the hair out of my head.
I'm hoping you will have a helpful suggestion regarding the brushes. I'm getting bogged down by too many variations. I've built loads of custom palletes by now and find that each one has its limitations. For the most part, I think there are just too many variables for me to get a handle on right away. I need a flexible pallete of about 5 or 6 basic brushes that will allow me to build a basic painting. Can you recommend some guidelines to building a brush with the optimum amount of flexibility?
