Announcements {And 45% off!}

Hi friends! I just wanted to pop in really quick to say that I will be offline most of the weekend starting tomorrow for some much-needed family fun time before the kids start school on Monday. I am recording the project scheduled for the live show tomorrow and it will be up on YouTube at 12:30 (the normal live show time) so feel free to pop in and chat with friends in the comments section and paint along as usual!

As a thank you for your patience as I take a much-needed weekend off I want to offer you 45% off all classes in my Teachable school with coupon code: OFFLINE45 through Labor Day 2018.  You have as long as you like to complete any of these classes so you can grab them now and take them when you have time, you have lifetime access!

Essential Tools and Techniques for Watercolor Painting: This class is designed to teach you everything you need to know about watercolor so you can get painting fast. This class is a good foundation for your watercolor studies. In the first part of this class you will learn about supplies, develop techniques and practise the skills you will need to create whatever paintings you desire in the future. In the second part of the class we will put all of the skills you learned into practise as we complete *four beautiful paintings. This class is my most popular course. *This class originally had 3 final paintings but I added a 4th on negative painting. Student always have access to any content added to classes they are enrolled in. Find out more here!

Texture Toolbox: Feathers & Fowl: This class will teach you how to realistically and expressly paint birds in watercolor. We work on capturing the subtle texture and shading in feathers and we add hints of colored pencil to enhance our feathered friends when desired. NEW! I have added an alphabetized bird painting tutorial archive to this class should you want to find past bird tutorials I have done that are not included in this course.  Click here for more info or to enroll.

Watercolor Flower Workshop: This is my most recent class and it is all about loosely painting expressive flowers in watercolor. Have you ever tried to paint loose and ended up with a hot mess? Well, this class will offer the structure you need so you can create a floral scene from your imagination that is well-balanced, beautifully composed and loose! This class focuses heavily on brush control so it’s good for folks that need help with brush strokes and are curious about some of the odd specialty brushes that are out there. I soon will be adding a wedge brush section to this class! In addition to the all new step by step real-time instruction provided in the course there is also an alphabetized archive of other watercolor flower tutorials for your convenience. Learn more here.

In addition to the never before seen content in these classes you have access to my support in the online classroom. Under every lesson there is an area for you to post photos of your artwork and ask me questions. I love giving feedback and seeing your beautiful artwork! Here is what some of my students have said:

Thanks so much! Love this class I do each section so many times because it is fun and i keep learning! Thanks again! -Karen L Jackson on Watercolor Flower Workshop

I LOVE THIS COURSE! Actually can paint a flower without a drawing! -Joanna Stratten on Watercolor Flower Workshop

Hi Lindsay, what a great drawing course. I have been painting for 30 plus years, drawing was my weakest, until now. I’m starting to see things in shape, I think the most helpful is starting with a circle or shape then fill in with the shapes of whatever you are drawing. This has been the best money I have ever spent. What I love I can look at these lessons over & over until I get it!! -Linda on Learn to Draw with Lindsay

I am blown away by the excellence of your lessons! Things that I have struggled with are making more sense when I sketch along with you. So glad that I will be able to go back and reference your videos! -Irene Addison on Learn to Draw with Lindsay

Thanks for the tutorial. I am glad that it is in more depth than the YouTube videos, although I love them as well. I am brand new to both painting and drawing so even the iris was a challenge. When I started watching your YouTube videos I found that I had some watercolor supplies I had purchased about 15 years ago and never had the nerve to try. Thanks for giving me the idea that it is possible for me to learn to paint! -Helanna Andres on Essential Tools and Techniques for Watercolor

How to hold the brush is the best information you could have imparted! loving all these videos; can’t wait to start painting the iris. -Judith Taylor on Essential Tools and Techniques for Watercolor

Hi Lindsay, Great Class!!! Simple and easy to follow. Thx for putting this together. I can’t wait to start the next painting! -Tina Amoroso on Texture Toolbox Feathers & Fowl

Finished the duck and this course! Loved it! Thank you so much for these watercolor painting classes. I just got the Rembrandt 48 half pans and am excited to use them….. I can actually do some watercolor painting thanks to your classes. Crystal Neuendorf on Texture Toolbox Feathers & Fowl

 

I love helping people discover the hidden artistic ability within them and I welcome anyone who want to paint better (and more often) to join one of my watercolor classes! Just make sure to use the coupon code OFFLINE45 if the discount does not appear (coupon good through Labor Day 2018.) Again I want to thank you so much for your support! I hope you have a relaxing weekend with your family and friends and maybe get a bit of art done! Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!

        I’ve bought several of my art supplies based on your comparison videos. Have a wonderful time with your kiddos
        It’s amazing how quickly they grow up. My kids are 25 & 27, it seems like yesterday I was out doing the back to school mad dash. Lol, have a wicked good time.

  2. Hey there Lindsay,
    Just wanted to say – have a great weekend with your family, you have more than enough earned time off to enjoy your family, without having to apologise to any of us. I don’t know about anyone else, but I am grateful for everything I have learned from you, even though I haven’t been able to take your classes or buy stamp sets you have designed. I would have if I could. Enjoy your kids before they are grown up and busy with families of their own. Take care and God bless you and yours.
    Sincerely Becky B from Arkansas

  7. Lindsey, I think I signed up for a class of yours — maybe drawing — but my computer crashed and I lost a bunch of mails — including the confirmations. Is there anyway to look back and see if you can find my registration?  I never had an opportunity to go into the class and would be interested. Thanks so much P

  8. We had a death in our family so have missed the last 2 weeks worth. Are you leaving your on line blog for good or just a break? I hope not for good as will really miss you and your good ideal and art information. Good luck if I don’t see you on line again. Sincerely. Edna
