You will find that Project Dogwaffle has many types of brushes. One such category is the group particle brushes, and it contains 4 sub-categories:

1. Particle brushes, the original Optipuss (optical octopuss) going back to version 1.6 (!)
2. Bristle brushes
3. Orbicles (orbiting 'swarms of bees' particles)
4. Foliage brushes

For nature painting, especially when adding grass, weeds, bushes and trees, you'll want to explore the Particles and the Foliages.
