Chapter 1. Basic Drawing and Painting Tools > The Paint Brush and Airbrush

The Paint Brush and Airbrush

The Paint Brush and Airbrush are the most basic painting tools. They differ from each other only in the way they apply “paint” to an image. The Paint Brush applies paint in dabs. When you keep your mouse in one place while holding down either mouse button, you get the same effect as you do when simply single-clicking the mouse button. The Airbrush, on the other hand, applies paint like an aerosol spray can. If you keep the mouse in one place and hold down one of the mouse buttons, paint is applied until you release the mouse button. In other respects, however, these two tools are similar.
