Chapter 1. Painting an Oil Portrait

Painter X has an unsurpassed ability to create digital images with a three-dimensional (3D) look and feel. You can use almost any image with Painter X to create a textural effect in a painting. You can create paper libraries, patterns libraries, and an almost-infinite number of brushes, and you can access filter effects that can give an image a 3D look and feel.
