"The Painter IX Wow! Book is a must-have! Author Cher Threinen-Pendarvis explains Painter tips and techniques in an easy and accessible manner,
and the book is the most visually stunning of its kind. Reading her Painter Wow! books was instrumental in my own early development with Painter,
and I continue to learn from them with each subsequent release." --Rick Champagne, Program Manager, Corel Painter, Corel Corporation

Corel Painter, the world’s leading natural-media painting software, has long
been a favorite among fine artists and illustrators, who love the way it
emulates the experience of working with traditional media such as
watercolor, oils, pastel, pencil, and ink, yet with all the advantages of a
digital technology. Whether you're an experienced digital artist or an
artist who needs a bridge from traditional media to electronic art, there's
no better way to learn Painter than from longtime Painter artist and
instructor, Cher Threinen-Pendarvis.

The Painter IX Wow! Book, which has been thoroughly rewritten for Painter
IX, has something to spark every reader's creativity. Cher, the artist who
built the default brush libraries for Painter 7, 8 and IX, gives you insider
knowledge on Painter’s tools, functions, and preferences.Beginners will love
the clear, step-by-step instructions, which assume no prior knowledge of the
program. Intermediate and advanced users will gain valuable insight from the
author's savvy explanations of a wide variety of cool, creative, and
productive techniques, and will find plenty of inspiration in the stunning
artwork that graces the book throughout.

In this new edition, the expanded painting chapter features many exciting
new techniques, including the new Artists Oils and improved Digital
Watercolor mediums and how you can integrate them into your Painter digital
art studio or Painter workflow. The Building Brushes section has been
expanded into its own chapter, and gives you detailed information about how
to create and organize your own custom brushes. The newly updated
printmaking chapter showcases more creative printmaking techniques and
addresses color management issues. You'll also find expanded chapters
focusing on:

·     Painting with brushes: Many new creative drawing and painting techniques using new high-performance natural-media brushes         
·     Enhancing photos: learn how to use Painter creatively with photographs and collages
·     Special effects for graphics and type          
·     Creating images for the screen and for printmaking
·     Painter’s improved compatibility with Adobe Photoshop
New Painter users will find thorough explanations of Painter's interface, as
well as drawing and painting exercises to help them get up to speed with
Painter quickly, while readers who are familiar with traditional artist
tools will learn how to transition their art media from traditional to
digital tools. The Painter IX Wow! CD-ROM includes new custom brushes built
by the author, extra textures and custom lighting effects that you won't
find anywhere else, as well as recorded scripts, stock photographs and video
clips, filters, software demos, and The Painter IX Wow! Study Guide, a study
guide/instructors guide for self-study or classroom use.
