The Corel Painter application lets you draw and paint as you might with real artists' tools and media. In your studio, you use brushes, pens, pencils, chalk, airbrushes, and palette knives to make marks on a canvas or piece of paper. With Corel Painter, an infinite variety of marks are possible. Like a fully stocked art store, Corel Painter supplies you with many different brushes and drawing tools, each with modifiable characteristics.
