As you will notice from the list of variants on the left this is a very small section. When you remove the different sizes there are only three different variants of the Conte Brushes.
Like the Chalk and Charcoal categories, these brushes are excellent at picking up a paper texture as they have a very rough finish. They can all use the Cloning Method.
In the examples below the brushes have been shown using both the Cloning Method and the Clone Color option.
This tree had a wonderful bark pattern and I was particularly attracted to the lovely range of colors.
The Tapered Conte brush was used to make the picture above, brush size 21.5 and opacity 75%. In the General palette the Method was changed to Cloning and the sub-category to Grainy Hard Cover Cloning.
After lightly cloning most of the picture the opacity was then increased to 100% to emphasize the main lines of the pattern.
The paper used was the Artists Rough Paper.
