Do you get better results just painting with a paint tool?

The brush you posted is not a good candidate for orientation dynamics,
as is much wider than tall.

Remember brush dynamics do not deform or distort the brush in any no
uniform way, it merely rotates it.  You would get (marginally) better
results with a bowtie shaped brush.

Not sure about the path flipping when stroking.  If you use a gih with
angular rotation it doesn't flip, so this looks like a bug in the
brush dynamic engine.
