    Any suggestions on creating "dirty" oil paint? la Goya

    I am trying to figure out a way to replicate his strokes with this seemingly "dirty" or grainy brush. Any ideas?

    Looks like that texture comes as much from the grainy canvas as from the brush.

    I just mucked around a little and had some success with a stiff, dirty oil brush on a coarse weave canvas, working with layer upon layer, changing the bump blend modes of each layer to 'add'. Easy dirt glitter at the smallest size can help with the grainy look, too.

    Yes, I see what you mean. There must be a brush setting that can give the effect I am looking for. Based on your suggestion I just tried using the Easy Dirt Glitter Tube preset at 2% with low pressure and used the finished illustration as a tracing image so the glitter colours would be based on the traced image. I then imported the same image back in as a lower layer and changed the blending mode of the glitter layer to Multiply.

    It is close. But, it is not natural enough. Maybe someone can script a brush to add specks to a stroke (specks of a lower saturation value than that of the given colour)? Can scripts do that?
