Corel Painter 2022 Workspace + New Brushes

Watch my demo video to learn how to use the new brushes and features

My Painter 2022 workspace is now available for download. I have added some new brushes and palettes. Last update July 1, 2021.

Please note that this workspace is only updated semi-yearly. You will be getting 19 new brushes and 14 updated brushes with this release. You probably won’t see another batch of brushes added to this workspace until late 2021 or early 2022.

You will need to re-run the Brush Accelerator after importing my workspace:

  • Optimized for CPU & GPU

  • Brush Loading support
    • Digital Airbrush

Please note that the files on my Dropbox have been updated with Painter 2022 content. If you’d like to access the Painter 2021 version of my workspace and brushes, those have been archived in the Workspace folder on my Dropbox.

I will no longer be updating my 2021 workspace, but I will still be offering the individual brushes and BOX files so you can import whatever is compatible with your version.

“Enhanced Cover” brushes will not be compatible with Painter 2021 and older.

It is possible that I may release more brushes that are compatible with Painter 2021 and older, but much of the content I create will be for Painter 2022.

The optional Brush Packs I release (not included in the workspace) are compatible with Painter 2021, so check those out if you are mostly interested in new brushes.
