Having an Artist with this perk in your party allows for additional gameplay elements through the painting mechanic. This provides an additional potential source of funds and fame via a peaceful means.
If the expedition contains Artists, they should be prioritised to level up first due to the increased value of paintings. The skill can only be used in specific locations and only when the expedition still carries at least one empty canvas. It's advised to try to get artists to at level 3 as soon as possible.
Be sure to always have several Empty Canvases on you, since without them, the perk is utterly useless!
Due to requiring both specific items and visiting specific locations that can often be ignored, it is advised for new players to rather not pick artists into their expeditions, as managing them can be a hassle.
Things you can paint:
- Natives in villages as an over-night event
- Natural Beauty (Stone Overhangs, Healing Springs, Waterfalls)
