    Brush Orientation - Brush loading bug

    Another oil brush loading quirk. It seems like even though a single brush is loaded with the same amount of paint, the total volume of paint laid down in a single stroke varies and is vastly different based on the direction of the stroke. This is a quirk of any wide and thin brush (aspect other than 100).

    At the top left are example dabs showing the brush shape for clarity. It is a rather slender ellipse. As can be seen in the pic, the total paint laid down is vastly different for a brush loaded with the same amount of paint, depending on which direction the stroke is made in relation to the orientation of the brush.

    To be fair, while investigating these brush loading quirks I noticed that (with a brush with stylus pressure off) heavy pressure lays down thicker paint quickly which is good, and lighter strokes lay down shallower paint more slowly allowing longer strokes. This, I presume, conserves the volume of paint for each stroke, so that it is consistent for every stroke independent of pressure (when the stylus pressure is OFF).
