Are you looking for slower versions of my weekly painting &

drawing tutorials? How about reference photos? 

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


  • Get instant access to all of my slower videos, past and present when you sign up. That is over 100 1-2 hour long tutorials to choose from!!
  • Tutorials rotate between Colored Pencil, Oil Painting, Acrylic Painting, Graphite, Inktense and occasionally new mediums.
  • 5-10 high-quality royalty-free reference photos each month to use in your own art.
  • Cancel at any time, there are no contracts!

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!
