Monthly Painting Projects

At the beginning of every month on my blog I post the instructions for the month’s painting project. Everyone is invited to join in, whatever medium you work in and wherever you are on your painting journey. At the end of the month, I post a photo gallery of paintings submitted, and I encourage you to share yours too. Participation in this is free.

There is also the option to become a Project Subscriber (via Patreon) which is a monthly subscription that gives you to exclusive extra content such as step-by-step demos and videos, plus a critique of your project painting and/or help as you create it.
