BRUSH STROKES MADE WITH THE PAINTER 6 PEN BRUSH, PATTERN PEN VARIANT 
OR ...
MAKING LEMONADE OUT OF A LEMON
Tonight, someone wrote to a Painter user group to say she was having some odd things happening with the Painter 6 Brush type and its Smeary Bristle Spray variant. The sample she sent to the user group showed a left-angled elliptical brush stroke with thin, straight lines jutting off toward the upper left and lower right corners of the Canvas.  I wrote back saying I'd see if I could duplicate her result and let her know later. (I couldn't but noticed some strange brush beginnings in my sample shown on the next page.) 

In the meantime, her strange brush behavior looked like something that could be fun to play with so I suggested that she write down the circumstances.. so she could make it happen later. 

An example is something that happens when I use the Pen brush type and its Pattern Pen variant. Since I haven't figured out how to avoid this oddity, which looks like the brush started spinning when I "put on the brakes", it's become something to play and have fun with. In the image above I painted some "snakey" strokes, two of which have odd endings (one is there just to show the Pattern used for the green "hub caps"), then used the Pattern Pen and painted in a tight circle with the brush Size slider set about 3/4 toward the right end. The size of the brush varied with the pressure I applied and the center swirls form smaller circles because I used less pressure.
