How to Control Texture Painting Backgrounds From Scratch REPLAY

Webinar REPLAY from

January 16, 2021 - 120 minutes

What you'll get:

  • online access to the webinar's replay
  • BONUS worksheets
  • decade's worth of Heather's rare knowledge of painting backgrounds

Heather will cover:

  • How to find the hidden lines/shapes needed for drawing a viewer into the subject
  • How to pair colors
  • How to pair texture (brushes and actual textures)
  • Tricks on using layers in a non traditional manner
  • How to trouble shoot unwanted texture
  • How to set up and save documents in Corel Painter 2021 
  • How to paint a background from absolutely nothing!
  • How to decide which brushes to use in a variety of styles (Classical versus Abstract)
  • How to make a "VEIL"

You've seen Heather's backgrounds in numerous Loan Collections and award winning imagery. Did you know she has a history of painting large scale studio backdrops on canvases and murals? Now you can watch as she paints background space from a blank document and reveals her workflow tips that consistently produce usable portrait backdrops! 

Do I NEED Corel Painter 2021?

Please note that Heather will be demo-ing her techniques in Corel Painter 2021 using Everyday, Brayers & Wax, and Speedy Scrubbers brushes. Some techniques may work in older versions of Corel Painter, but the Brayers and Wax techniques will only work in Corel Painter 2020 and newer. A full 30 trial of Corel Painter 2021 is available HERE.

Do I NEED Heather's Brushes?

You'll see in this webinar why Heather consistently uses the same brushes, so you can decide if you need them. It's highly recommended you own the Speedy Scrubbers for a baseline pack. If you're looking for more of a waxy, antiqued, vintage surface Heather's Brayers and Wax brush set is a phenomenal investment!

Please note that brushes are NOT included with this purchase.
