If you are downloading brushes, open Corel Painter first. Brushes are not backwards compatible and will crash Painter if you import newer brushes into older versions of the software.

Brushes>Import>Brush Category> (each individual .brushcategory file from this download one at a time).

Be sure to set your brush calibration per brush! This is imperative as it will set the brushes to be sensitive to your hand!




If you are downloading a tutorial set, please watch the corresponding Intro to Painter FIRST! It's very important to watch the Intro that matches your current version of Painter. Intro to Painter X3 is compatible with X3, 2015-2019. Intro to Painter 12 is compatible with Painter 12. For earlier versions of Painter please contact Heather.


For backgrounds and textures downloads, please see User Agreement above or on the store for terms of use. For some ideas on how to use the backgrounds and textures please visit (and subscribe!) to Heather's Youtube channel here:

(Painting by Michelle Parsley at www.ElevateYourArt.com). By the way, if you want to learn to paint in Adobe Photoshop, this is the genius you need to study under!

These backgrounds are exquisite for editing as layer overlays, full background swaps, or even "clone sources" in programs such as Adobe Photoshop and Corel Painter! They arrive in jpeg format.
