Oil and acrylic painters

Beginner To Advanced Artists

I'll demonstrate how to use this photo of The Golden Gate Bridge as inspiration from which you can make a painting rather than copy the photo.

The goal is to make your painting a work of art, and not look like you simply copied a photo.

*Over 2 hours of video demonstration, my palette is visible during the entire demonstration

*Notes, composition diagrams, reference photo, drawing

*You can start and stop the lessons to fit your schedule

*Stream the videos as many times as you like:)

*Once you purchase, you own the lesson for a lifetime. 

*You can download and print out the accompanying notes, drawings, diagrams and photos.

I enjoyed that immensely. Got so immersed in it I forgot about the open home we were having and when the real estate arrived there was paint everywhere! I’m a messy painter. 

I can see from the photo there’s a few mistakes. But I learnt a lot and next time I do cliffs I hope to nail it. 


I enjoyed Kristens class immensely. 

I was impressed with how easily I was able to produce a lovely painting under her generous and detailed expertise. 

I learnt skills that I can happily and confidently transfer to my own work. Kristen then took time out to critique my painting. With some very helpful advice I was able to touch up my painting transforming it from great to fantastic. 


I’m loving this class and you have me thinking and forward planning my painting, if that makes sense. I'm also enjoying for the first time water based oils and round pointed brushes.


Not too long ago I moved from NH to CA. Took 6 months to get my house organized and bingo we were under “house arrest" for the virus and I hadn’t painted in almost a year and lost my creativity. I looked on "‘Bold Brush” and found a class listed as “paint the California desert” I liked the painting that advertised the class and when I spoke to Kristen I knew it was a go. I’m a moderately experienced painter and loved watching Kristen demonstrate and talk about what she was doing. I understood what she was saying and learned about round brushes and how to use them. I love to watch Kristen's brush work. It makes me want to paint. Not only that, she has a sense of humor, is refreshing easy to talk to, and loves to teach.


I have been following Kristen’s fun video lessons one after another on teachable for a while. With her teaching I learned how to mix vibrant impressionistic colors and brushstrokes. Paint along with her is always fun and enjoyable.
