Fractured Realism in Equine Art Webinar Replay 2021


In this 90 minute webinar recording Heather will share her recently adopted process in creating these "fractured realism" portraits in Corel Painter 2021 also utilizing textures and veils. 

What you'll get:

  • Replay access to the recording 
  • Fractured brush set for Corel Painter 2021
  • An exclusive Texture set of jpegs (compatible with any software that opens jpegs) 
  • Heather's Exclusive Veil for this webinar
  • A brush reference sheet for the Fractured Brush Set
  • Heather's own reference image 


Welcome to an incredibly organic approach to digital painting.

In this webinar you'll learn Heather's unique layered approach for her "fractured realism" portraits heavily inspired by artist Christian Hook and Stanka Kordic. She'll be using brushes from her own packs but showing techniques applicable in Corel Painter 2020 and 2021. This process applies beautifully to painting portraits of people, as well! Learn the balance between cloning and free hand application in this technique. You'll be able to control how wild you want to fracture the artwork with your layers or stay defined in realism with heavy brushwork.

Please note this is NOT a beginner course.

A basic understanding and comfortable level of navigating Painter's cloning, brushes, and layers are required. If you need to catch up on those, you can find that in Intro to Painter 2018, Painting the Classical Portrait, and if you really want to prepare (which isn't necessary), Brayers and Wax tutorial. Heather will show you the basic setup for the Brayers and Wax method in this webinar.

This webinar shows the process of painting this Arabian and includes the high resolution guide portrait. 

You'll discover the number one reason that's restricting your paintings in the "too photographic" zone!

You'll learn how to control the level of abstraction in this webinar.

These techniques also apply to painting portraits!

What People Are Saying:

As always she was amazing! She thinks outside the box and gives freely all her knowledge and brushes to elevate others. A treasure.

Lisa S

Thank you so much for this program today! I was hesitant when it was described as an 'equine' webinar, but not to be fooled... this was very educational as an advanced teaching the concept of Textures and how it changes everything. It has helped me better understand using Textures, adding to what I had learned in the Brayers and Wax. Makes much more sense now. Thank you for all your experimentation!

Bobbie B

Heather, thank you so much for today's webinar! It was amazing as always. This is the direction I want to take my paintings in, and I am very thankful for your instruction and your bravery to create so freely. Thank you for the goodies as well! I can't wait to create something beautiful with them!

Ashley P

Thank you so much for today's webinar. I always learn so much from you!

Anne M

A wonderful educational webinar today! The only thing wrong with it was that it wasn't 8 hours long! You are so generous with your knowledge and I'm ready to sign up for the next one!

Tana P

The tutorial today passed much too quickly! Always a fan of your work and creations and very much forward to learning this process. Thank you for the opportunity and your generosity sharing the "goodies!" The project you worked on during class was stunning! I want "some of that" in my pencil box!
