Introduction to Painter X3, Part 1
Elaina Moore-Kelly is well-known for her “Intro Courses for Corel Painter.” Part 1 of her Introduction to Corel Painter X3 is open for registration.
I know, you have used Painter for a several years and you don’t need an introduction course to Painter. Or, maybe you are just starting with Painter and are utilizing all the videos you can find on You Tube or various blogs, and you don’t think you need an Introduction course. Phooey on that. Yes, I am telling you, the advanced user and beginner, that you are very wrong.
Corel Painter is a very complex piece of software, which means it is difficult to learn. Time and again, experienced users surprise me with their shallow knowledge of Corel Painter. Yes, you can get by with limited knowledge and create stunning works, but imagine what you could produce if you knew the program more intimately. Extra knowledge improves work flow, too. Trust me; a second look at Painter is a “win-win” situation. The benefits you gain will more than justify the small cost of this class. If you are a beginner, the class prepares you to properly use all the bells and whistles of Corel Painter X3.
Elaina’s classes are beautifully crafted. The class is open enrollment, which means you can register at any time and work the assignments at your own pace. You may download all materials and use them when needed. Register for Introduction to Corel Painter X3, Part 1 now.
Corel Painter X3 Natural Media Studio: Opaques
Tim Shelbourne has a new class open at The Artists’ Quarter (TAQ), Corel Painter X3 Natural Media Studio: Opaques. Tim’s classes are always top-notch and I have enjoyed taking every one of them. This class has the added bonus of some new custom brushes created by Tim. The brushes are fabulous. He calls them Schmid brushes and they were inspired by the work of renowned artist, Richard Schmid. Check out this video on FB; https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=10152235582763032&set=o.508369542565533&type=2&theater.
Here is an example of an image created by Tim using his new brushes. In class Tim will demonstrate his techniques.
You will love Tim’s class: Corel Painter X3 Natural Media Studio: Opaques.

Great Marion, I look forward to seeing you in the classes. I am doing well and my sister got a very good progress report this week. I am very happy.
Hang in there, things will improve. Thank you for the big build up in your blog post…I hope I can live up to the lovely things you said about my classes. 🙂
You deserve my comments and more. Your classes are excellent and enjoyed by all who take them.
Hi Skip…I went to look at Tim’s class but it was filled up. I was hopng to find a link to his new Schmid Brushes as Richard Schmid is one of my favorite painters. Is there a place where one can download or purchase this brush set? Thanks….
Still looking forward to an intermediate brush making class from you…I enjoyed your beginner class very much a year or so ago.
I don’t know if Tim has them for sale separately, yet. I would go back to his site and check out his new store. If he has them for sale, they will be in the store.
I hope to get the brush class back up. Right now I am in Mississippi helping my sister and I’m not sure when I’ll be available for class.
Thanks for the reply Skip…hope your sister is doing okay.
both links for facebook video and Corel Painter X3 Natural Media Studio: Opaques are not working 😦 Maybe You or somebody else know where they were moved?
Yes, links do change from time to time. You can find the classes at Tim Shelbourne’s The Artists’ Quarter Shop. When you get there, click on the shop link and that will take you to all the available products from Tim…all well worth it.
Hope this helps,
