Downloaded Artrage 2.5 for $25. It is a much better tool than Corel in the bundled software. It has many controls, e.g. the amount of paint you put on the brush, a palette knife for spreading the paint, ...etc. I only use very little of the features so far. For example, I have not yet learned where the palette is for mixing colors. So the colors are all mixed on "canvas". I am not skilled yet in controlling the brush and other tools. Continue using the window and the lamp on my desk for practice.
