A few features in these courses:

- Narrated 6.5 hours of lessons
- Real-time video! The time spent searching for markers is eliminated so times listed for each drawing are all-art.

- Free conversion charts for Olo and Sketchmarker can be consulted for colors that are close
- Closed captioning
- Photo reference provided
- Sketches included, tracing is allowed
If you wish to learn all 10 animals, not only is there a hefty discount, but you’ll have a BONUS lesson: the bear cub, narrated, for a total of 11 drawings. (The bear is only available as part of the full course, not as a single lesson.)

Human Rainbow II
In honor of Black History Month, I bring you, finally, the next version of the Human Rainbow class!
I’m so excited about this class – I’ve been working on my skills in a Life Drawing group near me, as well as my pen and ink skills, and it’s paying off( (Years ago I created Human Rainbow I – with drawings that I now look back on with a groan.)
It’s a proud moment for any of us as artists when we can visually see our own progress – even your instructor!
In the class you’ll learn how to color portraits with different skin tones, hair types, and more. It was a blast to work on this class, even if it was an epic journey. Human Rainbow I isn’t a prerequisite.
If you don’t need the course but would like to color the images, they can be purchased separately:

Sunrise, Sunset: Epic Skies in Pencil
This course came about when I reorganized this website – and noticed how few courses I’ve created in watercolor pencil! I do love the medium but the pencils got stuck in the bottom of a drawer. (Can you relate!?)
My colored pencil friends have been waiting for a new “scene” type of class too, so I decided to pair the two mediums together for one class!
In the lessons you’ll get to see the same photo rendered in both mediums, discussing how the techniques are the same or differ. That’ll make it easier for you to translate not only classes here, but YouTube tutorials…when you find a colored pencil one, you can figure out how to try it in watercolor pencil. Vice versa when you see a great watercolor pencil tutorial!
I hope that’ll be valuable knowledge to help you stretch more learnings to cover more mediums!
Stay tuned for more classes to come!
New courses are added every 4-6 weeks or so, rotating between various mediums; stop by again to see what’s new!
