Essential Tools

Canvas prep

Kick off your landscape, still life or portrait masterpiece by narrowing down the ideal canvas texture and color palette. A beautiful selection of built-in textures will inspire you and the ability to mix up your color palette vision or to import the perfect color set will set you up for success.


No matter what your media preference, Painter has the realistic brushes you need. Sketch your scene with expressive Pencils and then experiment with luscious wet media like Thick Paint, Acrylics, Oils, Watercolors, Gouache and Sumi-E.


If you prefer media that delivers an expressive texture, we recommend trying our Thick Paint and 2.5D Texture brushes, Chalk, Pastels and Charcoal. When combined with a pressure sensitive drawing tablet, you’ll forget you’re creating on the computer.
