Photoshop Mixer Brushes

Been ages since my last post. In that time I've been trying to set up a good set of brushes for CS5's Mixer Brush tool. The aim is to have a similar enough workflow when switching between Photoshop and traditional oils (for example, after working in Photoshop, going back to oils I would tend to press too hard and end up scraping up more paint than I put down). They feel good enough to share, but will probably be an ongoing effort.

Here's a quick sketch using them:

3 painting/drawing things to work more on in 2014:

1. Seeing and working the whole at the same time (figure is ground).
2. What is unstated reinforces what is stated, and vice versa.
3. Marks on canvas/paper can be arranged like a symphony.
