Canvas X Draw provides a full range of painting tools, including the digital equivalents of markers, airbrushes, and paintbrushes, tools for creating effects like neon and blends, and tools for retouching, color-correction, and cloning images. To use the painting tools, you can begin in several ways. You can select a painting tool and begin painting with it, you can draw a blank paint object to use as a canvas, or you can import or place an image, and edit it using the painting tools.
Paint Object Creator
Drag diagonally in the document to create a rectangular paint object.
A blank paint object appears in Edit mode. You can now use the painting tools to paint on the paint object.
Painting tools use the foreground or background color, or both. In the Toolbox, instead of a pen ink icon for the foreground, a brush icon appears when you select a painting tool.
The brush icon shows the foreground color, and the bucket icon shows the background color.
You can use any solid color for painting, including multicolored inks, such as gradients, symbols, textures, pattern, or hatch inks. Alternatively, you can use the Color Dropper tool to select a color from the paint object you are editing.
