Christiaan Veltkampis creating oil paintings
(1-4 nuggets per month)
Let me please explain in detail how it works. If you have any questions after reading this, of course please message me.
There are two possible situations. For example, you might have paid for ten months, and the painting costs $300. Then you can buy the painting for $150 at that point in time. The amount you save gets back to zero from that date on. On the other hand, if you want to buy a cheaper painting that for example only costs 100 dollar. Then 50 dollar stays available for a later date to buy another painting.
Please notice there is no 'real' savings account. This will all be done in good faith on a gentleman's agreement. I will not ever give money back. Also it is strictly only for buying a painting, not for any other item in my shop. The advantage for you, compared to saving some money yourself, is that by being a patron you will be automatically more involved with my work, and painting in general. Also you do make a big and very direct difference in my life, which I cannot express enough...
PS important: the maximum you can save every month is $30. If you intend to pay $40 for example that is possible and I will be grateful for the generosity. But the excess of $10 will then not count as saving. Please do also consider the other offer about saving money for $33, then you get all articles as well.
You can also send me your work via e-mail and I will give you constructive feedback. We can also discuss what kind of materials are best to use, maybe what literature to study and plan out a new painting you are going to do. Pretty much anything is up for discussion!
About Christiaan Veltkamp
Hi! My name is Christiaan, I am a Dutch oil painter and... elementary school teacher. I love to paint. It is a great passion of mine. I also enjoy composing music and I am active in exercising for strength & health.
For me it would be marvelous to acquire some extra income through my art. Not having to worry about money every month would be great. At the moment I work only part time at school to be able to also have the time for painting. Finances do get a bit tricky sometimes. If you do decide to support me at some point, I wish I could express to you how much that means to me. You really help me to create my art.
I was trained at the best Dutch institution for painting in the country: the Classical Academy. It would be fantastic if I can become a source of inspiration to aspiring painters. Let me help you to expand your understanding of this craft. Let's fight those imaginary bears standing on the road! I am very grateful to all people who follow me and form a part of the Poetic Oil Painting community.
