Palette Knives

The Palette Knife brushes are not the easiest to use as clone brushes as they jump around and are quite difficult to control. The Loaded Palette Knife shown below is a good example. The Tiny Palette Knifes are easier to handle, probably because they are so much smaller.

Another way of using these brushes is to work directly on the original and not use the cloning option. The brushes then push the picture around like the Blenders and this can be very successful with the right picture. The examples below for the Subtle Palette Knife and Tiny Subtle Knife have both been used directly upon the image.

The Subtle Palette Knife was used on these trees in their Autumn colors, the brush was used on a clone copy but with the image not cleared. The brush smeared the photograph as it recreated the picture, treating the imagery as though it was wet paint.

The brush size was mainly 40.0 and opacity 77.0. It was necessary to rotate the photograph in order to have the knife painting in the desired direction.

These brushes work in a similar manner to the Blender brushes and Figure 3.74 shows an alternative version using the Grainy Blender brush. This is actually a much easier brush to use, the brush size was 66.60, opacity 80%.

It's fun doing this sort of picture. The brush is fast to use and you can easily make several versions and decide later which the better one is.
