Publisher Comments:

"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.
