you are using the wrong pogram.
You are in need of corel Painter.
I hate to tell you you're wrong, but PhotoShop can be used for painting if

3 hair brushes or 3" wide brushes.
Each is its own media capable of creating its own range of effects.
Finger painting can be used to amazing degrees of creativity! We all
know what oil paints and brushes can be made to do in the hands of a
Thus Painter, Photoshop and if you will Microsoft's Paint program are
all similarly medias to be used as those finger paints or oil paints
are used. It's not so much, as Mr. Monroy so succinctly put it,"it is
Many of us here use our photography in conjunction with Photoshop to
create our own artwork and thus I put it to you that the combination
of Photoshop and a camera are no different in essence than using Adobe
Illustrator and Photoshop in conjunction.
