  1. Ian's videos will transform the way you paint review by Linda on 11/19/2017

    Taking this course was invaluable. I painted along with Ian step by step and learned the important elements that I will use in all my paintings going forward.

    He really unlocked the key lessons which is what I most appreciate about his videos--he teaches you how to think and approach a painting as well as the important techniques that many teachers don't explain fully. Ian makes it understandable in a way that gives you many "aha" moments.

    Best of all, I was able to email Ian directly and he quickly answered my questions.

    I now own all of his videos and can't wait to continue my studies with him, thanks Ian!
