Are my YouTube tutorials sped up too fast for you?

I offer 1-2 hour versions of my weekly videos to Patreon supporters for as little as $4/ month.  These videos now include voice over tips and instruction to help you take your own artwork to the next level!

  • Get instant access to all my slower videos, past and present when you sign up.
  • Tutorials are in Colored Pencil, Oil Painting, Acrylic Painting, Graphite, & Inktense

For me, art has never been about some elitist idea of the “right” way to create. It’s art!! There is no wrong way to create!!

Does your work not look the way you want right now? Paint more! No matter how good or bad your work comes out, you are at the very least getting a feel for the medium. Time is never wasted when spent painting or drawing!

YouTube Art Videos

Every week I have four new videos for artists ranging from critiques, artist vlogs, speed paintings drawings and tutorials, art Q&A and social media tips for artists.
