1 On the Colors palette, choose a main color.
2 Choose Window menu > Brush Controls > Show Color Variability to display the Color Variability palette.
3 Choose In HSV from the pop-up menu.
4 Adjust the Hue, Saturation, and Value sliders to control hue, saturation, and value ranges for color variability:
• Moving the ±Hue slider to the right increases the number of hues in the resulting brush stroke. These colors are the ones adjacent to the selected color on the color wheel.
• Moving the ±Saturation slider to the right increases variability in the color intensity of the brush stroke.
• Moving the ±Value slider to the right increases variability in the brightness of the brush stroke.
You can try different ±HSV settings with any of the brushes to produce interesting results.
When you save a brush variant, the current color variability setting is also saved.
When working with brushes like the Loaded Oils brush or the Van Gogh and Seurat variants of the Artists brush, you can add natural, almost 3D-looking effects to your Web page images by moving the Hue, Saturation, and Value settings to the right.
