Join Aaron Rutten and Me In a Live Demonstration of Watercolor in Corel Painter 2016

Hello Friends,

Corel Master Painter Elite Aaron Rutten and I are having a Live Session on Friday, July 1, 2016 at 3:00 PM Eastern Daylight Savings time.  I hope you can join us live, but if you cannot, do not worry…you can download the recorded broadcast.

Follow this link to join the live stream.  When you click on the link, look at the bottom of the window.  You can click on full screen mode or click on You Tube and go directly to the broadcast on You Tube.  No need to do it until Friday, July 1, 2016, at 3:00 PM EDT.


This is my first live stream experience.  Luckily, Aaron is an old pro and knows how to set it up.  I’m just along for the ride.

If I understand it correctly, you view our Painter desktops side by side.  Watch us demonstrate watercolor in Painter 2016 and answer any questions that may come up.

I hope this is enjoyable for everyone.  If so, I can have more live streaming sessions.

See you Friday, July 1, 2016 at 3:00 PM EDT.




Painter Master Dominick Saponaro and more on Painter Tutorials

Hi Friends,

Yesterday I attended Corel Painter Master Dominick Saponaro’s webinar and it was excellent.  I enjoyed watching how he used colorize composite method to color his gray-scale image.  Also, his use of Straight Line Strokes intrigued me.  The recorded video is now on-line.  Check it out at Painter Tutorials.

Two other wonderful Painter Master tutorials were also released today.

Painter Master Elite Karen Bonaker demonstrates creative uses of layer masks and graphic stencils.  Karen outlines the technique in a way that is easy to understand and follow, but the results are far from simple looking.  I know you will enjoy Karen’s tutorial using Corel Painter 2016.

Painter Master Elite Cher Pendarvis explains the new Blending Brush Control Panel available in Corel Painter 2016.  The enhanced and updated Blending Panel, previously called the Well Panel, is far more powerful and useful in Painter 2016.  Cher’s excellent tutorial sheds light on this rather complex panel.  Her explanation will change the way you paint.

There are many more Corel Painter tutorials on You Tube.  I believe that some folks only look for the latest tutorials thinking that the earlier tutorials will not apply to the latest version, but that is not the case.  Yes, there are more bells and whistles in the latest version, but the basic underlying principles are the same.  So if you are looking for a particular topic for Painter 2016 and you find it demonstrated in Painter X3, don’t pass it up.  More than likely, you will get the answers you need.  Do visit Painter Tutorials and have a look around.

I had one session yesterday morning and it was so much fun.  My buddy Corel Painter Master Elite Tim Shelbourne was there and teased me without mercy.  It was a hoot and all in good fun.  I know you will enjoy it.  Winifred Whitfield and Hilary French were there helping, too.  Thank you so much my friends.

I held the second session yesterday evening.  Winifred was back helping manage questions.  Thank you so much Winifred.  Also attending was Corel Painter Master Elite Helen Yancy.  I quickly made her an organizer allowing her to interact with Winifred and me.  It is so much easier when I have someone to talk with while doing a demonstration.  Helen, thank you so much for letting me impose on you.

OK, now you have the two videos to watch.  They are also on You Tube.
