Creating with Sumi-e - Corel Painter 8 Tutorial

1 You're probably wondering what you can do with the Sumi-e brush. Let's find out.

2 Start with a semi light gray background. Go ahead and select a medium blue.


3 Lay in a foreground area as shown below.


4 With white as the color selected, choose the Flat Sumi-e 30 brush and lay in the sky area.


5 Reduce opacity 24% and brush in the rest of the sky.


6 With a medium dark gray lay in the line as I have done.


7 Change colors and brushes, reduce opacity to 34% and lay in a water. Rotate the canvas if necessary.


8 Same color-different brush, create waves.


9 At a 26% opacity and a bright yellow selected, add a sun.


10 With a Flat Wet Sumi-e 20 brush set at 13% opacity and 100% white, roll the brush around the sun.


11 Select black and the Dry Ink brush and add a tree trunk.


12 Add some more branches with the Variable Thin Sumi-e 40 brush.


13 Lay in the leaves and reflective part of the tree.


14 Using the Coarse Bristle Sumi-e create a person in black. With the Bristle Sumi-e 12 paint in the shadow of the man, add rows which appear to look like a field.


15 After adding a title the piece is now complete.
