Hello Everyone,

I am so late posting this.  It is two weeks late; I have tons of excuses.  Honest, I do.  I know you…are not interested.

So I have the honor of being Corel Painter Master of the Month.  There are a couple of short videos Corel’ Painter’s You Tube Channel and I did a written tutorial, but alas, I’m not sure where.  But the big event is the webinar tomorrow.  I hope this post isn’t to late for some of you to make it…I hope you do…I’m a little nervous and could use your support.

Guess what, I have made a new brush set, too.  I plan to use them tomorrow in the demonstration and then post them here in a day or so.  I was going to post by today, but computer problems robbed a bunch of time today…and trust me, you don’t want to hear about what I think of Alienware at this moment.  Anyway, I call the new brushes Desert Oasis.

As a teaser for the video, I have produced three videos for the blog.  These are different…you get to see me paint, but I don’t tell you how I am doing it.  I’m saving that for tomorrow, but I will tell you I used a lot of the Desert Oasis variants, which are Real Watercolor variant.  So let’s get started.  In the videos I am “sketching” watercolors; at least that is what I call it.  I try to make quick watercolors in around 10 minutes.  The images are successful or not; I am learning with each one I do.  I hope some of you will try them too.  I promise you will enjoy the process.  Here is the image from the first video.

And here is the video…enjoy:

I couldn’t stop.  I was having fun.  Here is the image from the second video.

Next is the video, but I bet you knew that!


 The last sketch with a video.

And the video.

 OK, just for fun, here are a couple more sketches.  The first one was done in a live session with one of my classes and I tried to do something similar in the third video.  I failed…sigh.

Another one from a live class…very simple washes.

 Well that’s about it.  Please sign up for the webinar if you can.  If not, it will be available on Corel Painter’s website.  Come back often; over the next few days I will be giving out the brushes and doing more demos about them.  See you tomorrow, I hope.

  1. Great stuff, Skip. I’ll set the alarm for 2am and do my best to get to your session online. You are teaching me to practice, practice, practice…. and the more I practice, the luckier I get. Sorry to hear about the alienware probs- my new iMac 27 runs nearly flawlessly (looking for wood to knock on). One question- Do you think there is an appreciable performance improvement between the Wacom Intuos 3 tablet and the Intuos 4 or 5 models?

    • Hey Wardie,
      I wouldn’t get up in the middle of the night to see me. 🙂 So glad you are having a great time with your MAC. I would be a lost puppy using a MAC.

      There is a huge difference between the Intuos 3 and 4. I don’t have a 5 yet, so I can’t comment. I have a 3 connected to my lap top and a 4 on the desktop…I like the 4 so much better. Can’t explain why right now…but trust me, you do want at least a 4.

      • I went from the 3 to the 5 and WOW. I love, love the touch feature. It is wonderful , I would definatley recommend the 5 !!

    • I have just upgraded from the 3 to the 5 and WOW. ! the touch feature is great !! Such a diference all around. I definately reccomend the 5.

  2. Congratulations Skip. Wish I could be at your webinar today, but alas have to practice for a dancing exhibition I am in tomorrow morning. Want to get your new brushes and see your webinar at a later date. All the best.

    • Hey Marion,
      I wish I could see your exhibition; I bet it will be wonderful. You can always see the video at a later date.
      Have fun at your practice and performance.

  3. Good luck Skip! Or perhaps I should say, break a leg (not literally!) I would be there but I must go out in the car to make a living today. I will see you in class tonight.

      • I realy enjoyed the webinar, mainly your way of sketching with your brushes.
        I asked what are the special properties of your new brushes and Tanya answered that you will explain it in your blog.

  4. Darn, wish I had seen the announcement earlier 🙂 I jumped in the last few minutes, but missed most of it. Brand new, only been using Painter 12 for a couple of weeks and struggling. I love watercolors, so I would have liked to have seen the whole thing. Catch you next time!

    • Hi Gina,

      I was bad and waited too long to make my post…so sorry. But, guess what…the webinar was recorded and will be posted. When that happens, I’ll let you know.

  5. Wonderful webinar. Love to watch you work your magic. Your new brushes are awesome and loved to see you working on layers that much. Congrats on being Painter Master of the Month. You deserve it.

  6. Super great job Skip !! I took some great notes…….now if I can just read Glad you’re posting the video.. Look forward to the brushes also !! PS. I couldn’t see the names of people attending?? …or was it set up that way ??

    • Hey Judi…your are too sweet. I’m not sure about the attendees…I didn’t set up the webinar, Tanya did…I was just a panelist. Now I have to get to work and get the brushes finished.


  7. Hi Skip,

    I was in attendance at your webinar. It was excellent as was your finished painting. It is inspiring to see you complete such a beautiful work in substantially under 1 hour. Thank you for all. Winifred

    • Winifred, dear friend… Thank you so much for attending. I can’t imagine that I was inspiring, but I’ll wrap myself in that compliment. You are the best.

      Hugs, Skip

  8. Quick question, you have a video for sketch 1, 2 and 4. Are they accidentally mis-numbered or is there a sketch 3 video? Thank you for these videos.

    • Hi Kathi,
      There was a sketch 3, but I decided it didn’t add any new information so I didn’t add it to the post.
      You are welcome for the videos and I hope you continue to find use for them.
