How to Use This Course

Since people will come to this course with a wide variety of backgrounds, each project has 

  • preliminary skill videos demonstrating the essential skills for each project
  • supplemental videos addressing common questions and some handy tricks for optional steps in the projects
  • two videos for each project, one about the design and planning process and one step-by-step paint-along video for the project painting itself
  • a collection of downloadable templates, reference photos, “cheat sheet” handouts to remind you of core concepts, and information about the supplies and materials I’m using in the videos.

Please watch the preliminary and supplemental videos to learn the techniques before attempting the project video! 

The project videos DO NOT INCLUDE explanations of the skills and techniques taught in the preliminary and supplemental lessons. There is far too much material to cover all the skills for each project within the project video itself. The project videos only show how the skills and techniques you are learning might be applied to a painting.

Download links for handouts, templates and reference photos are included in the lesson where they are used, below the lesson video.
