Skillshare Classes!

I now have 9 classes on Skillshare!

Learn how to paint Animals, Plants and Fungi with Gouache and Acrylic paint!

I researched all the on-line learning sites and Skillshare is my favorite. Lynda and Udemy are also great but Skillshare has them beat in a couple of ways. The first is price. Skillshare is about half the price of Lynda. Udemy classes are paid for individually so you only get one at a time. Whereas in Skillshare you have access to the entire library of over 29,000 classes. Any this library is growing daily. There is about any topic you might be interested in: from Oil Painting and Animation to Computer Programming, creating web sites and setting up a small business. If you do subscribe, you’ll have access to all my classes (and lately I’ve been adding several a month) as well as the entire library of 29,000 classes and growing. 

There are two types of memberships on Skillshare. The first one is a free membership, you don’t pay anything and get access to a whole lot of courses, limited of course, but still, it will get you well on your way. To become a free member you create an account and then you’re ready to browse through all classes and take all the ones categorized as free. You will also be able to view the intros/promos for the premium classes, but if you want to take the complete course you will have to upgrade to a premium membership.

Still doing paintings of the post-monsoon mushroom display in my garden. 
This one is a Chlorophyllum molybdites - acrylic on canvas - 8x10 inches.

I did a complete start-to-finish tutorial of this one up on my Skillshare page:

Monsoon Mushrooms!

Monsoon 2019 has wrapped up in Tucson. We got almost 2 inches of rain in the last few weeks of September. That and the cooler temps led to an epic mushroom event in my garden. I counted over 50 mushrooms there in one day! Here are a few of my garden journal pages.

I made a tutorial video of this last mushroom page.

Monsoon Journal and new YouTube channel

The 2018 monsoon in Tucson has been pretty spectacular. Amazing cloudscapes almost every day. I started a Monsoon Journal to document some of the beauty around me. Here are a few pages. All done with  my new favorite paint, Acryla Gouache. I've done some YouTube videos on a few of these on my new YouTube channel:
