Impressionist – applies short and very visible brushstrokes to create the illusion of movement and light
Modern – applies bold brushstrokes and adds vibrance to colors to produce an abstract reinterpretation of a photo
Illustration – applies a wide variety of brushstrokes to produce an illustration-style painting
Detailed Watercolor – applies a translucent wash to produce the smooth, soft effect of watercolor paint on your photo
Watercolor Sketch – applies a combination of drawn lines and watercolor brushstrokes that add depth, texture and contrast
Colored Pencil – applies fine-tipped colored pencil strokes
Pencil – applies graphite pencil strokes that appear to be drawn by hand

  53. Since I am a huge fan of the 19th Century Impressionist artists of Paris, I would choose the Impressionism style of painting. Corel makes the best products, and I would really enjoy using this (especially on the portrait type photos that I've taken of my two granddaughters!)
