I received these two books via mail from Amazon today: The Painter 9 Wow! and Painter 9 Creativity. I’m not one to buy trade books but my husband suggested it might be valuable to have these for reference, etc. A good idea, really (and a tax write-off, of course). I have Painter 5-9, but primarily use 7 (something about the brushes and how they ‘feel’ in 7 that isn’t the same for me in the later 2 versions. Maybe something in these books can help me figure out how to adjust that). If I learn something that I think would be especially helpful or exciting, I’ll be sure and post.
