Dear Friend,

My goal for painting is to create fresh, loose paintings that are grounded with a foundation of design. What if your paintings were built on a foundation of design fundamentals that created paintings with greater visual impact? What if your work looked more professional? What if you could mix fresh, clean color and kiss muddy paintings goodbye forever?

That's exactly what we need as artists. That's exactly what I can help you do.

I want to teach YOU how to design a painting.  I want to teach YOU how to make your work stand out in an exhibition. I want to teach YOU how to have greater success as a painter.

That's WHY you need this course.

If your goal is to make well designed paintings with greater visual impact then I can help you get there faster. I've spent the last 25 years developing these tips, tools and strategies.

I want you to be a better painter, not just a better abstract painter. That's why these design fundamentals apply no matter what type of painting you do.

I teach hundreds of students in live workshop events each year to take their paintings from so-so to superstar status.

Give yourself permission to design better paintings. Enroll in this course.

What People are Saying:

"Wanted to say thank you so much for creating Design Fundamentals for the Artist - I am so thankful! I started with your book and recently purchased Design Fundamentals for the Artist. I had to write to let you know how much I appreciate the easy to understand, concise information that has completely transformed my work! I have been painting abstracts for a couple of years, but with no formal art training or background - your course provided exactly the foundation I needed for things to start coming together. Thank you so much - these videos are essential for someone like me, who is having fun creating abstract art but lacks the educational background in design." Nicole Holmes
