My class started at the Digital Art Academy, but it isn’t too late to register. I am enjoying the class and I think the students are, too. I produced over 30 videos already. The first week we covered Painter 2017’s enhanced UI, property bars, and palette drawers. Then we started painting and altering older paintings with the new Interactive Gradient tool. And for the adventurous, I showed how to change the variants used by the Interactive Gradient Tool when it uses the Paint Express function. It adds another bit of fun to an already powerful function. In the attached video I demonstrate how Express Paint changed.
Following is the image created in the video. I think this makes a great under-painting for a forest type landscape, but who knows…there is a lot of imagery lurking in this piece. What do you see?

And of course, I have a class called Woo-hoo! What’s New in Painter 2017. I designed the class to bring you up-to-date on all the new features of Painter 2017 plus lots more. The following video is the first video of the class and gives a broad over-view of what’s new in this version.
If you have taken one of my classes previously, you know that I cover the material in great detail. The class officially opens on Saturday, Aug 13th, but I made some of the Week 1 videos available so early registrants can start playing right away.
I made the following image in Corel Painter 2017 using the new interactive gradient tool. I started with one of my inky landscapes and then added color via gradients. I have demonstrated this technique in Painter 2016, but Painter 2017 brings way more power to the technique. The gradient tool might be…I keep changing my mind…my favorite new feature.

I hope to see you in the class. I promise it will be a lot of fun.
