Corel Painter Watercolor, Tell All Tutorials


Example of watercolor in Corel Painter 2023

I reviewed what I had done for the new features of Painter 2023 and realized I had finished. There have been numerous requests for tutorials about watercolor in Painter. This post is exactly that…tutorials about watercolor in Corel Painter 2023. I will be working in Painter 2023 and the resources that I make available will be compatible with 2023.

Let’s get started. The first three videos talk about using Selections with watercolor. Since selections are enhanced in 2023, I thought this was a good place to start.

Selection Videos

I am going to provide the brushes I used in the tutorials. This next series of videos concern the brushes and how to use them.

Brush Tutorials

This tutorial has some of the same information given in the Selection Tutorials, but I felt it was good to review.

The next series of videos demonstrate painting with watercolor in Corel Painter 2023.

Painting One

This is the next tutorial. Sadly, I was focused on the painting and did the whole thing in one video. Sorry for the length of the video.

Following is a box file with all the brushes I used in the demonstrations. To install a box file, open Painter and go to Menu > Window > Custom Palette > Organizer and select import. Go to you saved box file and select it. The file will be installed in painter as a new brush category under the active Brush Library. Enjoy.

Following is the Paper Scripts Library that I used. To install, open Painter, got to Menu > Window > Scripts and select the three lines in the top right corner. From the menu, select Import Script Library, then navigate to your saved file and select it. If you are having problems, you might be importing Script instead of Script Library.

Following are paintings of mine that were done in Corel Painter. Some are new; others are old. Enjoy.

One of my favorite styles is watercolor using blacks as if it was ink and watercolor.

  1. This is great, thank you. I unfortunately can’t use 2023 on my iMac. It has the Radeon Pro 570X 4 GB processor. My computer is only two years old so I am stuck till I can afford a newer model with the better processor. I fear my days with Painter are numbered. 2022 is working fine although I can’t use some of the brushes, or can’t get the full effect from the brushes. 😦

  2. Hi Skip, looking forward to watching all this. For some reason I can’t download the resources. I’ve disabled popups for this site. the screen flashes and I see the file name at bottom of your page but nowhere to download the file. Any ideas?
