Anatomy of a stroke

When you paint a stroke, the result is defined by different parts of MyPaint. You can combine any Painting Tool, Brush and Paint Mode to suit your drawing style. MyPaint uses one and the same engine for all kinds of brushes (and the eraser).

  • Painting Tool: Defines how the shape of a stroke is made
  • Brush: Defines the look of the stroke
  • Paint Mode: Defines how the resulting color is applied to the canvas.

The Painting Tools

The general painting tools change the input method of strokes and can be used to construct geometrical shape. The lines that are created will be made with the current brush, colour, and paint blend mode.

Other Tools

MyPaint also offers Tools for Navigation, canvas tools and the colour picker.
