This is a place where you can learn and grow as an artist. My goal is to help you become confident in your painting abilities and have some fun in a relaxed, informative setting. Here you will find 1 hour+ long acrylic painting lessons. These tutorials illustrate how to create entire paintings, from start to finish. We talk about which brushes we should be using, how to mix paint, and how to use water as an incredibly versatile medium. These lessons are posted weekly and will offer vastly different landscapes to ensure that you are always learning how to render new subjects. By becoming a Patron not only do you equip yourself with a myriad of new ideas, techniques and knowledge but you also help support this channel. For that I thank you. To put it simply, by supporting this channel and continuing to paint you are keeping the beautiful medium of painting alive.
