Different TileBrush TileMode settings

For the TileMode property to have an effect, you must set the Viewport for the brush to a size that is smaller than the area that you are painting (the output area). If the Viewport size is equal to or exceeds the output area, the brush produces a single tile that expands to fill the output area, and no tile pattern occurs.
