Just make a few custom brushes.
I use one that 'pressure' fades with its colour.
One that fades opacity.
One that does both. (Fav)
Five that do everything else. Inc linear burn, multiply filters etc...
He (Dusso) does use the soft pressure brushes to add in subtle grads.
Faster ways to paint;
Press F twice to go fullscreen.
Press tab to bring up/hide your tools and colour palette quickly.
In brush mode press alt + click to select any colour in your painting.
Set your pens click buttons to undo, select brush size/type.
Make your own tools/brushes etc... Save yourself hours.
Work tiny + blow up and add detail later.
I squint to see distant objects.
