Chapter 4. Painting a Fantasy Forest with the Image Hose

The Image Hose may be one of the most overlooked features in Painter X, possibly because the default nozzles that ship with the program are based on photographs, so they are of limited use when you paint an image. Who, after all, wants photographic elements in the middle of their painted piece? The default nozzles tend to look inconsistent with most painting techniques and are generally ignored. But the Image Hose is a wonderful tool when used correctly; it can make painting small repeatable elements easy and quick. There is no better tool for painting multiples like leaves, pebbles, flowers, sand, and clouds.
