Painting Backgrounds from Scratch in Corel Painter 2018 (re-play)

75  minutes

In this tutorial, Elite Corel Painter Master, Corel Certified Painter Educator, PPA Master Artist, Master Photographer, Master Craftsman, and Golden Artist Educator Heather "the painter" will share her workflow and thought process for creating the illusion of depth by selecting appropriate color and values. She'll also talk about pairing brushes and textures to suit your subject and concept. Backgrounds are a supporting element in your overall masterpiece. They can make or break the impact of a painting. Don't let a few simple elements detract from the many hours you put in on your subjects! 

The downloadable material is compatible with Corel Painter 2017 & 2018. The techniques and concepts are transferable to older versions of Painter and other software that allows the user to paint!

Beginner users welcome!

Recorded from the live webinar event March 12, 2018. Please note that since this is a re-play, the drawing for prizes has been completed. Brushes not included.
