In order to receive your login instructions after checkout, you must click BOTH "subscribe to our email list" and "I have read and agree to the terms and conditions of this page as follows:" above this box! Due to the nature of these digital products, they are non-refundable and non-transferable. You agree to terms of use upon download.

All materials are copyright 2023 @ Heather Michelle Chinn and may not be shared, distributed, re-packaged, sold, or handed out without expressed, written permission from Heather Michelle Chinn. While these may be used in your edited, flattened files for your photographic edits, they may not be submitted to your photography (or ANY) clients as layered files. These backgrounds, or other content, (in whole or in part) may NOT be sold, distributed, or used as a base to create variations or "new" backgrounds in any manner to be printed or sold to background companies without expressed, written permission from Heather Michelle Chinn at Heather@HeatherThePainter.com
You agree to terms of use upon download which include not sharing, selling, or re-packaging these documents in any form to be used as stand alone products. You may use them within your artwork, but please don't repackage and sell them as standalone transparent files. I have seen my backgrounds sold as backgrounds on Etsy before. Please don't do it.

Backgrounds, textures, collections, or any files downloaded from this site (including the online library) MAY NOT BE UPLOADED INTO ANY AI (artificial intelligence) programs such as but not limited to Midjourney, Dall-E, NightCafe, Images.ai, Deep Dream Generator, ArtBreeder, StableCog, DeepAI, StarryAI, and/or FOTOR. This is agreed upon download. You are encouraged to either use the backgrounds in your photographic edits, OR to use them as painterly bases to take into a program where a human user controls the brushwork in the digital painting such as Adobe Photoshop or Corel Painter for a client file (subject over top of the background in a flattened delivered file). 

The Backgrounds and Backgrounds Collections may be used as layers, or textures while editing your artwork for both commercial (ie: photography studio needing to change a backdrop in their portrait subject's edit) and personal use. The backgrounds/textures may not be (modified or not) shared, repackaged, resold, copied, or redistributed in any way to be distributed as backgrounds/backdrops/textures. This is agreed upon download. Backgrounds may not be sold, licensed, or distributed in a way that permits Licensee’s end users to extra or access the backgrounds as a stand alone file or PRINTED. Each purchase is copyright protected and only available for a single user. All backgrounds remain property of Heather Michelle Chinn.

Sketching the Head Webinar REPLAY 2023


What you'll receive:

  • Access to the digital replay for the life of the online library (streaming)
  • Invitation to join Heather's private Facebook group of students
  • Full resolution reference file to practice alongside the replay
  • Heather's painted file in full resolution to study the brushwork  
  • Heather's custom high resolution texture
  • Heather's BETA SKETCHING BRUSHES (compatible with Corel Painter 2021 and newer!)


In this 60 minute webinar replay Heather will demonstrate how she uses TRUE mixed media in sketching ranging from alla prima brushes to Corel Painter 2021's (compatible with multiple versions of Painter!) watercolor and ink brushes for an organic feel. Sketching doesn't have to feel "digital" in a non-analogue space. Join Heather as she shows you how! In this webinar you can expect to see a sketch of a head worked in the time of the webinar. The guide image, finished file, brushes, and texture will be supplied. 


 Included is the above image in the demo (both prep and high res painting)
